The Virtual Foundry Launches Filamet, Metal Composite ABS and PLA 3D Printer Filaments

As we have stated time and time again, and recently backed up by a research report presented by SmarTech, the materials portion of the 3D printing industry is just as important as, if not more important than, that of the hardware and software side of things. Because of this, material scientists are working for some of the largest 3D printing companies on the planet, testing new formulas to present all sorts of amazing possibilities.

Waste Not, Want Not: Bracelets & Rings Using Leftover 3D Printer Filament

As an artist, I know that there is something sad about the little leftover scraps of the material that was a precious part of the process of creation. I have tried many times and in many different ways to figure out how to use hundreds of fabric circles or dozens of snippets of string that were the byproducts of some creative frenzy or the other.

Bringing Industrial Manufacturing to the Desktop with New MoldLay 3D Printing Filament

he applications for 3D printing are limitless. Innovators are constantly coming up with new applications and designs for the technology; however, one of the main limitations to desktop FFF 3D printing’s use is often a filament’s material properties.

lost wax casting with MOLDLAY 3d Filament

How to print a ancient chalice of tin with MOLDLAY ;
part of LAY-FILAMENTS by Kai Parthy
complete lost wax casting instruction with pictograms in 7 steps.

MOLDLAY is a wax-alike thermoplastic 3D printing filament, dedicated for two main casting methods:

A – lost mold ; lost wax casting
B – permanent mold casting

• super dimension stabil,
• stiff, rigid at room temperature
• near zero warp, printable without heated bed
• print at 170 – 180° C,
• heated bed max. 40°C,
• treat your mold at ~ 270°C , in an old baking oven only,
• the wax flows restless out the mold, similar as hot paraffin,

How It Is Made: 3D Printing Filament

Have you ever wondered how the filament for your 3D printer was made? We got a chance to go frolic in a warehouse where that exact thing was being done. While pretty much anyone who is familiar with 3D printing may know the basics, there are probably a point or two where they’ve got it wrong!

Matterlab’s Robert Cicetti develops hemp and tagua-based FDM 3D printer filaments

While there are a large number of FDM 3D printer filaments available on the current market, many of us choose to primarily rely on PLA filament for its biodegradable properties. While it also doesn’t suffer from the warping issues common in its main competitor ABS, the idea that all those failed prints don’t end up in some eternal pile of rubbish is quite comforting.

Proto Crate offers monthly filament subscription with different materials for $49.99

It seems like only a few years ago, the only things that were delivered to your mailbox from a subscription membership were magazines, books, movies and the occasional fruit basket or other “food of the month” items. These days, if it exists, there’s a good chance that you can receive it monthly in your mailbox for a set monthly fee. Already we’ve seen everything from shaving razors to wellness packages and dress shirts to baby diapers. Now, you can add 3D printing filament to that list, too.
