Copper Filamet contains 89%-90% metal and enables any FFM Printer to produce metal objects. Printed products require debinding and sintering in a furnace. Once fired in a sintering furnace, the result is 100% metal.
What you'll need to print;
- FDM/FFF Printer
- Hardened Steel Nozzle 0.6mm
- Blue painters tape for your print bed.
What you'll need to debind and sinter;
- Kiln or Furnace that can hold the sintering temperature (Sinter temps listed here.)
- Sintering Refractory Balast - Al2O3
- Sintering Carbon
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, stainless steel.
Spool Placement: Reducing friction and pull on Filamet™ during printing is important. Try hanging the filament spool just above the printer.
Polishing: Visit our Use Instructions page for polishing guidelines.
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.
