Bronze Filamet™

  • $ 20.00


Bronze Filamet™ contains around 87% metal. Filamet™ enables any Fused Deposition Modeling printer to produce metal objects. Once fired in a kiln, the result is 100% metal.

Printer setup
(Visit our Use Instructions page for full printing, sintering and polishing guidelines.):

Temperature:  401-419°F (205-215°C)
Set print bed to 122°F (50°C) (optional).
Tip: Put a layer of blue painters tape on the print bed. Filamet™ has great adhesion to the bed.

Speed:  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 thin. With traditional PLA, it will simply squeeze out at the sides. Filamet™ is more viscous which slows this process. If the printer 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 .1mm.

Nozzle:  .6mm or larger, standard brass

Reel Placement:  Reducing friction and pull on Filamet™ during printing is important. Try hanging the reel just above the printer. Use a FilaWarmer set to 45°C to enhance success on the path from spool to printer.


When sintering in an open environment, use Magic Black Powder for the Refractory Ballast. In a vacuum or inert environment, use Al203 and/or Powdered Graphite.

 

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