Silicon Carbide Filamet™ - The Virtual Foundry

Silicon Carbide Filamet™

  • $ 68.40

Silicon Carbide Filamet™ is made of TVF's signature binder combined with around 67.6% silicon carbide.
Silicon Carbide Filamet™ enables any Fused Filament Fabrication printer to produce silicon carbide objects.

What you'll need to print:
* An FFF/FDM 3D printer
* Stainless or hardened steel nozzle sized at 0.6mm (MK8 and MK10 varieties in the shop)
* Blue painters tape for your print bed. Glue sticks also work on glass print beds

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, hardened steel.

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

What you'll need to debind & sinter:
