Filament Database?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament Database?

The answer is probably a big NO, but....

Is there any kind of "database" out there for different types/brand of filaments?

Specifically, what settings to use (temps, speeds, support offsets, blah, blah). (This would probably have to cross reference with what machine you are using)

Just curious.

I have an Ultimaker2, and it came with some PLA. Using the default settings in S3D, the Ultimaker brand PLA printed fine. Pretty happy experience.

I bought some filament from MakerGeek. One spool of MakerGeek PLA and one spool of Form Futura EasyFil PLA.

And things are different. All three behave differently. Of course they do, they are slightly different plastics.

Anyway. I am new and wanted to make sure that I wasn't overlooking an obvious resource if one existed.

Thanks.

    There is this website (in french)

    It can give you basic guidance, but in my own experience every machine is different and behaves differently, some settings on one printer (even the same brand) are not guaranteed to work on yours....

    But it can help
