Filament Database?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
