Filaticum Model – just like Filaticum Gypsum and Essence – is member of the product group containing gypsum. Their common characteristic is that the added gypsum changes the usual properties of the plastic, both functionally and aesthetically. The mineral content in the Filaticum Model is medium, less brittle than Gypsum filament, as for its basic characteristics it is between Gypsum and Essence filaments. This filament contains white pigment also, so the printed objects are off-white, with a matte finish, and the details are well outlined, which is useful for modelers. The printed models can be painted much easily than those printed with standard PLA or ABS filaments. The object can be sanded – both dry and wet – , and it is easy to cut, thus most accurate models can be printed with Filaticum Model. UV-resistant filament. It is one of the most versatile Filaticum products.
Filaticum Gypsum – just like Filaticum Model and Essence – is member of the product group containing gypsum. Their common characteristic is that the added gypsum changes the usual properties of the plastic, both functionally and aesthetically. Filaticum Gypsum has the highest mineral content, thus it is yellowish, looks like rock or gypsum. The printed objects can be shaped very easily: they can be cut with a sharp tool, sanded, and polished, thus facilitating the post-processing of the object. It is easy to paint also, even with water-based paint. Due to the high mineral content the suggested printing temperature is lower than in case of standard PLA: 185-210 0C.
Video about how the Model filament (part of the product group) works in practice:
Filaticum Wood filament is designed to create objects resembling real wood in texture and color. Printing settings are the same as those for standard PLA, and you should pay attention to the same things. The nozzle clogging is not an issue with Filaticum Wood, as it I usually a case with wood filaments.
At the same time, the adhesion is excellent, shrinkage is minimal.
The wood effect is also enhanced by the fact that the printed object has a unique touch that is rougher and more natural than PLA. In addition, it is relatively easy to sand and simple to paint.
Objects printed with Filaticum Foam have got a foamy, spongy texture. The hard 3D printed foam has open cell structure. Due to the foamed structure, the layers are barely visible, and it has a nice, smooth surface. However, it can be easily sanded, cut, painted and shaped as needed. The beige color variant looks natural and the black one has a particularly shiny matte finish.
The structure of the foam, the quality and structure of the surface can be widely modified by changing the printing settings.
Objects with the required density and foam structure can be printed by setting the parameters accordingly.
At higher temperatures, lower flow and speed, and with a large nozzle the lightest foam can be produced. Using the standard PLA settings, the result is a tough foam and impact resistance. The density of an object made of Filaticum Foam is 50-60% of that of an object printed with standard PLA. Depending on the settings, it can be varied from 0.6 g / cm3 up to 1.2 g / cm3.
Filaticum Foam is suitable for applications where light 3D printed objects are needed, e.g. automotive industry, modelling or founding. Its foamed structure can be exploited in printing art objects, sculptures, and biologically active substrates. It can be applied as support material also.
Filaticum Support is a PLA-based filament, developed for 3D printings which need support.
As opposed to the soluble support materials Filaticum Support is an easy to break-away filament, so the vast majority of the support material can be removed quickly. Any remaining support on the surface can be completely removed by sanding. The result is a clean printing surface, there is no or minimal need for post-processing.
Also suitable for printing the complexly structured supports. It is compatible with FDM filaments and works well with them.
Printing with Filaticum Support is simple, settings are similar to PLA’s: printing temperature 190-215 0C, bed temperature 60 0C.
