Using PLA with Hot Solenoids

Recommended Posts

I have a need for printing some 3D printed things in PLA that need to tightly hold a solenoid that will get very hot. As of right now it's melting the PLA pretty good and allowing things to move around. Will ABS fix this? I'm not sure it will. Any ideas of how to tightly grip the solenoid with something and dissipate the heat before it gets to the PLA? Ideally it would be a simple hack. Thanks for the help.

    • "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.
