Getting Started Bundle for Metal 3D Printing

  • $573.00

The Getting Started Bundle for Metal 3D Printing is designed for quick metal printing success.

What’s Included: 0.5kg spool of Bronze Filamet™, Filawarmer, 0.6mm Hardened Steel Nozzle*, 300mL Stainless Steel or Alumina Crucible, 1kg Al2O3, 0.5kg Magnesium Silicate, 0.5kg Sintering Carbon.

*If your printer does not use MK8, E3D V6 style, or MK10 1.75mm nozzles, you will need to purchase a 0.6mm hardened steel nozzle separately.

Specs: The 0.5kg spool of Bronze Filamet™ included with this kit contains 88.0% - 90.0% metal and has a density of 4.29g/cc - 4.5g/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, a Filawarmer, 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 effects on Filamet™. Spools should not be dried.

Fully Sinterable Metal Filament: Once fired in a sintering furnace, the result is 100% metal. Instructions for sintering this product.

Special Qualities: Easiest material to print and sinter. Perfect material to begin with.

Used For: Partner Innovators have used this filament for research.

Crucible Specs: Stainless Steel: 73mm D x 98mm H / Alumina: 93mm D x 93mm H

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.
