Octofiber ABS is produced from an optimized ABS polymer and carefully monitored pigments and is processed under the highest quality controls. This ensures a consistent product, with accurate printed objects as a result. PLA is well known for its good 3D printing properties and is suitable for many applications where you can use thoughness, temperature resistance up to 75 °C and a matte surface finish.
This 2.85mm product is compatible with most 2.85mm 3D printers equipped with a heated bed. We have tested Octofiber on a variety of machines; Repraps and Ultimakers of course. All with different (dual) hotends, and nozzle diameters. We are pretty sure that it will work with your machine if it looks like one listed below:
- Velleman K8200
- Reprap 3mm
The values below are a safe starting point to obtain good results, but may not be optimal for your printer. for example a delta printer can achieve much higher speeds than a direct drive would. Anyways, contact us if you cannot get it working.
|Bed temperature||95 °C|
|Nozzle temperature||225 °C|
Use them as a starting point, optimal values for your specific printer may vary from the values shown above, depending on e.g. nozzle diameter, exact printing speed and layer height to name a few.
Many strategies are possible to get Octofiber ABS properly to your print-bed: clean glass, blue painters tape, glue stick, hairspray, special 3D printing stickers. Whichever option you choose, a heated bed is advised, as it increases bonding and reduces the warping process.
