MATERIAL TESTING & CERTIFICATIONUPDATE: JANUARY 2, 2019
Fusion3 continues our leadership in open-source 3D printing materials,. We provide our customers the most robust variety of 3D printing filament for our industry-leading commercial 3D printers. The latest update adds seven engineering grade materials from five different manufacturers, including two new manufacturers: Premix and Priline.
Polymaker PolyMax PC (Polycarbonate)
Polymaker, based in Shanghai with offices in Savanah, Georgia and the Netherlands, continues its progress in developing high-quality polymers for 3D printing. Polymaker touts “PolyMax™ PC is an engineered PC filament combining excellent strength, toughness, heat resistance and printing quality.”
Priline Carbon Fiber PC
Priline is a manufacturer that only sells on Amazon. We tested their Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate and were blown away by the print quality and with the addition of carbon fiber, we would expect and even higher strength-to-weight ratio versus standard PolyCarbonate.
Premix PREPERM ABS300 & ABS550
Premix is a Finland-based developer of electrically conductive plastics. Under their PREPREM brand, they have released a number of different ABS with low-loss, dielectric properties for prototyping and small-run production with FDM 3D printers. ABS300 has a 3.0er, the ABS550, 5.5er.
colorFabb_HT and _HT Clear
European-based colorFabb stands out as one of the leaders in global 3D printing filament innovation. In conjunction with Eastman chemical, they have released colorFabb_HT, a co-polyester that provides high temperature resistance (100*C), durability and ‘toughness’.
Matt Howlett, the genius behind the Michigan, US based 3DXTech is often at the forefront of 3D printable, engineering grade materials. 3DXTech recently released their ABScent which they decribe as “Transparent and odorless ABS with all the great things you expect from ABS – absent the odor! Nearly warp-free printing without the odor associated with standard ABS. Transparent grades of ABScent™ ABS have up to 90% light transmittance.”
