From 3D printers that are fully enclosed to materials and equipment that are either recyclable or eco-friendly, technology just keeps getting more and more refined to make sure that the 3D printing process is as streamlined, nontoxic, and fume-free as possible.
No one wants their creative processes interrupted with annoying fumes, although often they do seem to go hand in hand with many processes in innovation, from art and printing to manufacturing. When you are printing from your desktop, eliminating fumes as much as possible is a priority, and more and more 3D printer and material manufacturers are beginning to take that into account for users, who may be surprised today to learn that this is possible with a new ABS filament from Formfutura.
Formfutura is obviously on board with making life more pleasant for 3D printing enthusiasts with their latest developments, and announcement regarding ClearScent and six new filaments:
- 1.75 mm ClearScent – Clear
- 1.75 mm ClearScent – Transparent Dark Blue
- 1.75 mm ClearScent – Transparent Red
- 2.85 mm ClearScent – Clear
- 2.85 mm ClearScent – Transparent Dark Blue
- 2.85 mm ClearScent – Transparent Red
Formfutura recommends their groundbreaking new filaments for transparent or semi-transparent 3D printed projects employing ABS. While the transparency and lack of odor are the major features users will be getting excited about, not only do the transparent colors available offer a higher aesthetic that many will be excited to try out, the ClearScent line of filaments also offers a variety of other benefits and features for those involved in 3D printing:
- Almost all visible light passes through the material
- Users will find that they experience less warping with this particular ABS material
- The material affords excellent thermal stability
- Interlayer adhesion is superior
While clear, red, and blue are the only colors being provided right now at €29.95 per spool, Formfutura reports that they have other colors in development that will be released soon, offering even further versatility and options for 3D printing of transparent models.
With the motto that they believe “everyone has a designer inside them,” Formfutura is based in the Netherlands and has a firm focus on providing the best materials and therefore, the best 3D printing experience possible for all of the designers who use their products.
Formfutura resolves only to work with manufacturers who share their vision in providing superior quality, affordability, and a strong foundation for their 3D printing enthusiasts to build from. They guarantee the highest quality in colors, durability, and successful prints. Founded by a group of dedicated 3D printing enthusiasts, they embody the community concept so prevalent in the 3D printing industry, and want to see everyone have access to the technology affordably.
We’ll let you know as they roll out their new colors, along with future products. Have you used any Formfutura products, and is an odorless filament important to you? Do you have any projects ongoing right now that could benefit from these new odorless, transparent filaments? Let us know over in the ClearScent by Formfutura forum thread at 3DPB.com.
