OF 3D PRINTABLE MATERIALS
Many Fusion3 customers seek to 3D print the same engineering-grade plastics they use for injection molding. Other customers desire unique properties that new, innovative filaments can provide. Unlike other 3D printer manufacturers who restrict the types of materials used with their machines, Fusion3’s testing & certification process ensures our customers can successfully print the widest variety of materials ‘out of the box’.
EVERY TYPE OF 3D PRINTABLE PLASTICS
Fusion3’s 3D printers can print filament from all major families of 3D printable plastics, including standard and hybrid formulations of:
- CARBON FIBER FILLED
- FIBERGLASS FILLED
- FLEXIBLE (including TPU/TPE)
- ACRYLIC / PMMA
- and MORE…
TESTED & CERTIFIED TO ENSURE COMPATIBILITY & PERFORMANCE
PURCHASE DIRECTLY FROM SUPPLIERS
Unlike other 3D printers that require customers to purchase from a limited assortment of expensive materials, Fusion3 does not sell filament. We test and certify filament from a variety of leading manufacturers, encouraging competition in price, quality, and innovation.
RIGOROUS TESTING PROCESS
Fusion3 subjects new materials to a rigorous testing process: we evaluate the performance and suitability of the material, and develop the process settings our customers need to print successfully on their own.
We encourage our customers to request the testing of new materials. Requests range from evaluating a new plastic or formulation, to certifying a generic filament sold by a familiar or local supplier.
Fusion3 seeks out new materials to test and frequently publishes updates to our ‘Certified Materials List’ and the Simplify3D configuration files (”profiles”).
