Has anyone printed with specialty filament? Like wood, carbon fiber, radiation shielding etc. Does it work well? Also what temps for nylon?
Some Nylons can be printed -with care- down past 220 degrees Centigrade. 235 C and 245 C. are more common. There are places besides the Taulman website with information.
Radiation shielding?.. What the ehffff?
Thats exactly what i thought… Its bad ass though. Guess if a nuke is dropped someone could print a shield. (Which would be 20cm by 20cm of course. Just a little too small)
I guess it shouldn’t be too hard to make a heated paste extruder for lead. Its melting point is 327 c.
They are creating metal filament. Its pla with a bunch of metal dust. Not pure metal
There are metal alloys that melt at and even well below the temps for PLA.
Hmmm. Wonder how well it would work. It would probably be malleable
