Filaments used for desktop 3D Printing
At Formfutura we offer a wide variety of ABS, PLA and “Specialty” filaments. All our ABS, PLA and Specialty filaments are extruded with the latest technologies available, ensuring very tight tolerances with respect to the filament’s diameter and roundness.
PLA filaments - We currently offer two types of PLA, our Premium PLA and our EasyFil™ PLA. Both our Premium PLA, as well as our EasyFil™ PLA are available in 1.75mm and 3mm diameter and are perfectly suitable for all FFF/FDM technology based desktop 3D printers. The main difference between our EasyFil™ PLA and Premium PLA series are the colours in which the filament is available and its transparency. Our coloured Premium PLA is in general slightly transparent, where our EasyFil™ PLA’s colour is usually opaque. Another difference between our Premium PLA and EasyFil™ PLA is the extrusion diameter of the filament. For more detailed specifications about our EasyFil™ PLA and Premium PLA, please also have a look at the “SPECIFICATIONS” tab in the designated product area of our website.
ABS filaments - As with the PLA filament we also offer two types of ABS; our Premium ABS and our EasyFil™ ABS. Both our Premium ABS, as well as our EasyFil™ ABS are available in 1.75mm and 3mm diameter and are perfectly suitable for all FFF/FDM technology based desktop 3D printers. We have several colours of ABS available in our ABS series. All our Premium and EasyFil™ ABS filaments come in opaque colours. For more detailed specifications about our EasyFil™ ABS and Premium ABS, please also have a look at the “SPECIFICATIONS” tab in the designated product area of our website.
FlexiFil™ filament is a rubber-like 3D printer filament which allows you to print flexible objects, such as rubber machine parts, soft toys, flip-flops, and other rubbery items. FlexiFil™ opens doors to a whole new field of application when it comes to desktop 3D printing. FlexiFil™ is a flexible PLA 3D printer filament with a Shore hardness of 45D.
Taulman 618 Nylon - Taulman 618 Nylon is specifically designed for 3D Printing applications where excellent surface bonding, reduced water absorption, tear resistance and dye absorption are combined in an easy-to-print line. Taulman 618 Prints as a bright natural to white with a translucent surface. It's possible to add colour with most common clothing dyes.
Taulman 645 Nylon - Taulman 645 Nylon is a 3D printer filament which is specially designed for 3D Printing purposes where excellent surface bonding, reduced water-absorption, tear-resistance and transparency are joined into a 1.75mm and 3mm 3D printer filament. Taulman 645 has remarkable characteristics when it comes to strength (St: 16,533 psi /114MPa), surface bonding, and durability (exp. elongation at break = 120%).
Taulman t-glase - Taulman t-glase is a high-strength 3D printer filament specially designed for users that print mostly with PLA or lower temperature desktop 3D Printers.
EasyWood™ - EasyWood™ is our newest wood filament. At the moment it's available as EasyWood™ Coconut - Dark Brown. EasyWood™ Coconut is a revolutionary 3D printer filament. EasyWood™ looks, feels and smells like real wood. EasyWood™ Coconut is a unique mixture of 40% grinded coconut particles in combination with the modified and proven easy-to-print binding polymers used for our EasyFil™ filaments. This extraordinary blend has resulted in a high-end and unsurpassed “easy to print” tropical hardwood filament.
LAYWOO-D3 (Wood filament) - With LAYWOO-D3 you are able to print objects that look and smell like wood. LAYWOO-D3 filament is a mixture of 40% recycled wood with a binding polymer. This wood/polymer composite allows the filament to be printed just like thermoplastic filaments – such as ABS and PLA – but gives your creation a wooden-like appearance.
LAYBRICK (Sandstone filament) - With LAYBRICK you can print objects that look like sandstone. LAYBRICK is a mixture of milled chalk and harmless co-polyesters. The result of combining this unique mixture into a 3D printer filament is that LAYBRICK printed parts look and feel like (sand)stone, which makes this 3D printer filament extremely suitable for architecture models and landscapes.
PET (PolyEthylene Terephthalate) - PET in its original state is a colourless and crystal clear material. PET is fairly stiff, strong and impact-resistant. These characteristics make the material highly suitable for lightweight products.
Thermochrome PLA - Thermochrome PLA is a modified PLA thermoplastic filament with a unique colour-changing characteristic when the material gets above 29°C. When the temperature of the material is below 29°C it will be opaque coloured. When the temperature gets above 29°C it the material will change into transparent.
BendLay - BendLay is a heavy duty, translucent and yet flexible filament. BendLay’s transparency is being described as “plexiglass-like” as apparently BendLay will let 91% of visible light pass through its fibre. BendLay is as clear as Polycarbonate filament. This unique feature makes BendLay extremely suitable for printing light-transmitting objects.
POROLAY - POROLAY is the name of a brand new serie of 3D printer filaments. This new revolutionary line consist of foamy, felty filaments with a porous structure. With this filament you can build porous flexible objects. The POROLAY line consists of four different types of filaments: LAY-FELT, LAY-TEKKKS, LAY-FOMM (40 & 60) and GEL-LAY. LAY-FELT and LAY-TEKKKS are similarly felt-like materials, though LAY-TEKKKS is thinner and more fibrous. LAY-FOMM and GEL-LAY are foamy and gel-like respectively. The composition of the POROLAY filaments consist of two different materials; a functional component, for example an Elastomer (i.e. a rubberlike) and a soluble component (e.g. PVA, sugar, salt, or soluble resins). Note: the POROLAY filaments are specially designed for experimental use by experienced users.
HIPS (High Impact PolyStyrene) - Polystyrene filament has very similar 3D printing characteristics to ABS thermoplastic filament in terms of impact strength and stiffness and it prints very nicely too. HIPS has a unique feature that it dissolves completely in Limonene, making HIPS filament particularly suitable as a support material for printing complex ABS structures.
smartABS / ABSpro™ - smartABS/ABSpro™ is as hard and resilient as normal ABS, but has 30% less warp than normal ABS, as a result of which an excellent interlayer bonding can be obtained. This unique feature makes smartABS perfect for printing large(r) objects.
