  • Extruder Temperature: 230-250 °C, No special hot-end required.

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is known for its strength and durability. It has very high heat and impact resistance making it an ideal choice for tough environments.

  • Bed Temperature: 80-120 °C, Heated Bed Required, Enclosure Required.        
  • Extruder Temperature: 260-310 °C, All-metal hot-end required.

Flexible, TPE – TPU

Flexible filaments, commonly referred to as TPE or TPU, are known for their elasticity allowing the material to easily stretch and bend.

  • Bed Temperature: 45-60 °C, Heated Bed Optional, Enclosure Not Required.   
  • Extruder Temperature: 225-245 °C, Direct Drive Extruder Recommended.

Carbon Fiber Filled

Carbon fiber filaments contain short fibers that are infused into a PLA or ABS base material to help increase strength and stiffness.

  • Bed Temperature: 45-60 °C, Heated Bed Optional, Enclosure not required.    
  • Extruder Temperature: 200-230 °C, Requires Wear Resistant Hardened Steel Nozzle.

Wood Filled

Wood filaments combine a PLA base material with cork, wood dust, or other derivatives, giving the models a real wooden look and feel.
