Product Details, Specifications, and Technical Information

Silicon Carbide Filament™ is available as 1.75mm and 2.85mm filament and as pellets. Specs: This filament comes in 0.25kg and 0.5kg spools and 1kg bags of pellets. It contains 65.0% - 68.0% silicon carbide and has a density of 1.9g/cc. High Compatibility: This Filament™ enables any open-architecture Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printer to produce ceramic objects. Even works in 3D printing pens! Easy to Print: All you need is an open architecture 3D printer, a 0.6mm hardened steel nozzle, a Filawarmer, and a model to print. Print like regular PLA. Place your spool so that the filament coming off is going straight into the extruder. The flow rate in your slicer may need to be adjusted up to 135%. Advanced Properties: Filament™ is less hygroscopic than regular PLA. Filament dryers have adverse affects on Filament™. Spools should not be dried. Fully Sinterable Ceramic Filament: Once fired in a sintering furnace, the result is 100% ceramic. Little to no warping occurs during printing. Sintering trials have not been conducted for this product. Special Qualities: Very abrasive, microwave concentrator. Used For: Partner Innovators have used this filament for Cemented carbide tooling research and development. Eliminate tooling and machining costs for short run manufacturing, prototyping, and one-off ceramic part needs. Note: All sales final except in cases of defective product. Made In America
