Stainless Steel 17-4 Print and Sinter Kit -  Filamet™ - The Virtual Foundry

Stainless Steel 17-4 Print and Sinter Kit - Filamet™

  • $ 368.41

Print and sinter Stainless Steel 17-4 with this package designed for quick metal printing success.

Package includes:

0.5kg Spool of Stainless Steel 17-4 Filamet™
0.6mm Hardened Steel Nozzle*
Graphite 765mL or Alumina Crucible - 300mL
Sintering Refractory Ballast - Steel Blend - 1kg
Sintering Carbon - 0.5kg

*If your printer does not use MK8 or MK10 1.75mm nozzles, you will need to purchase a 0.6mm stainless or hardened steel nozzle separately.
You'll also need blue painters tape for bed adhesion. Filamet™ sticks hard to the print bed.

Stainless Steel 17-4 Filamet™ contains around 85% metal by mass and has a density of 3.0g/cc.
Filamet™ enables any Fused Filament Fabrication printer to produce metal objects. Once fired in a sintering furnace, the result is 100% metal.

What you'll need to print:
* An FFF/FDM 3D printer
* Stainless or hardened steel nozzle sized at 0.6mm
* 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.
* Alumina or Graphite Crucible
* Sintering Refractory Ballast - Steel Blend
* Sintering Carbon

Slicer Setup: Start with a basic PLA profile for your printer. Change the nozzle temperature to 210°C (410°F) and tune in the range of 190-230°C (374/446°F). Optionally, set the print bed to 40-50°C (104-122°F). Set the flow rate to 135%. Adjust settings from there as needed.

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

Nozzle: 0.6mm or larger, stainless steel.

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

Polishing: Visit our Use Instructions page for polishing guidelines. 

Eliminate tooling and machining costs for short run manufacturing, prototyping, and one-off metal part needs.

Note: All sales final except in cases of defective product.
