Amaco 46-D Ceramic Clay Filamet™

  • $ 37.00


Amaco 46-D Ceramic Clay Filamet™ contains around 40% clay. Ceramic Filamet™ enables any Fused Filament Fabrication printer to produce ceramic objects. Once fired in a kiln, the result is 100% ceramic.

What you'll need to print:
* An FFF/FDM 3D printer
* Standard brass nozzle
Filawarmer
* Blue painters tape for your print bed. Glue sticks also work on glass print beds

What you'll need to debind & sinter:
* Any Kiln or Furnace that can hold the sinter temperature of your desired material. (Sinter temps listed here.) The Virtual Foundry sells two sizes of kiln: Starter and Pro
* Crucible (a few varieties in the shop)
* Sintering Refractory Ballast - Al2O3

 

3D Printer setup: Visit our Use Instructions page for full printing and polishing guidelines.

Temperature: 205-235°C (401-455°F)
Set print bed to 40-50°C (104-122°F) (optional)

Tip: Put a layer of blue painters tape on the print bed. Our ceramic filament Filamet™ has great adhesion to the bed.

Speed: 30mm/sec (1800mm/min) to start.

Layer Height: Many slicers lay down an extra wide first layer to get good adhesion to the bed. This is not a problem unless the first layer is very short. With traditional PLA, it will simply squeeze out at the sides. Filamet™ is more viscous which slows this process. If the nozzle seems clogged, it may be that the nozzle is too close to the bed on the first layer. Once dialed in, some users are printing down to a layer height of 0.1mm.

Nozzle: 0.6mm or larger, standard stainless steel.

Spool Placement: Reducing friction and pull on Filamet™ during printing is important. Try hanging the filament spool just above the printer.

No sintering trials have been conducted on this material. Check The Virtual Foundry's Use Instructions page for guidelines to get started with the sintering process where needed.
