Rapid 3DShield Tungsten Filament
Rapid 3DShield Tungsten Filament is available as 1.75mm and 2.85mm filament and as pellets.
Specs: This filament comes in 0.5kg and 1kg spools and 1kg bags of pellets. It contains 88.0% - 94.0% metal and has a density of 7.8g/cc.
High Compatibility: This Filamet™ enables any open-architecture Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printer to produce metal objects. Even works in 3D printing pens!
Easy to Print: All you need is an open architecture 3D printer, a 0.6mm hardened steel nozzle, and a model to print. Print like regular PLA. Place your spool so that the filament coming off is going straight into the extruder. The flow rate in your slicer may need to be adjusted up to 135%. Little to no warping occurs during printing.
Advanced Properties: Filamet™ is less hygroscopic than regular PLA. Filament dryers have adverse affects on Filamet™. Spools should not be dried.
Fully Sinterable Metal Filament: Once fired in a sintering furnace, the result is 100% metal. Sintering trials have not been conducted for this product. To partner on development, contact us. Sintering is not required to take advantage of the radiation shielding capabilities of this product.
Special Qualities: Can be used as a replacement for lead for radiation shielding. For more information, visit rapid3dshield.com.
Used For: Partner Innovators have used this filament for radiation shielding and research.
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.
