3DPrint.com may have started out as simply a news site, and we always will primarily be a source for the news of the 3D printing industry, but we’ve become much more as well. We’ve offered online classes and webcasts, job boards, white papers and giveaways. We want to be a source for everything 3D printing, not just the news. We even have a portal where you can shop for 3D printers, filament and other supplies. Now we’re offering something brand new: our own branded 3D printer filament.
We’ve started our own line of filament by offering two options: Facilan C8 and Facilan HT. Facilan C8 is an innovative, specialized material that is designed to print without any visible layer lines. It has higher impact strength than PLA and higher tensile strength than ABS, as well as excellent surface quality and the best layer adhesion of any FFF 3D printing material. It is a soft touch material designed for manufacturing, and it prints at 195 °C with a 50 °C bed temperature at 45 mm/s on PEI sheets. It’s recommended that you print with fans at 0% because this improves layer adhesion and part strength. However, in designs with significant overhangs and bridging it’s recommended to print with fans at 80%. Facilan C8 retails for $44.50 per spool.
Facilan HT is a high gloss material with a heat deflection temperature of 89 °C and comparatively high impact and tensile strength. It was created as a safer and higher performance alternative to PET, PETG and other copolymers. Facilan HT has a higher tensile strength than PLA, PETG, and ABS. It prints best at 240°C with a bed temperature of 80°C at a speed of 50 mm/s on PEI sheets. The same fan recommendations given for Facilan C8 go for Facilan HT as well. Facilan HT retails for $42.75 per spool. You can purchase both filaments here.
Also new to the 3DPrint.com shop is a portal for Dynamism, a retailer of 3D printers, filament, 3D scanners and laser cutters. You can now buy Dynamism’s 3D printers, which include machines from Ultimaker, Rize, Formlabs, LulzBot, ZMorph and more, directly from the 3DPrint.com shop. You can also access Dynamism’s other services, which include onsite training and installation as well as webinar training.
At the 3DPrint.com online shop, you can also find the best Amazon.com deals on 3D printers and 3D scanners, or order customized 3D printed footwear from Wiivv. There’s also a print services portal, powered by Treatstock, where you can upload your 3D designs and order 3D prints. Keep an eye on the online shop for new offerings as well, as we will continue to work to expand our services for our readers.
