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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
