Ultem 9085

Recommended Posts

Well not as a standard but perhaps with a lot of effort it could perhaps be made to.

Challenges:

- i think Ultem requires a processing temp of around 350-360C and the UM2 is limited to 260C.

Possible solution: hw and sw modification is possible, I think Anders Olsson managed to go up to 350C with 3dsolex I2K washer (to prevent the PTFE coupler from softening) when using a modified fw to allow for higher temps.

- I think Ultem 9085 is only available in 1.75mm size from what I've seen.

Possible solution: modify extrusion train to accept 1.75mm, it can be done.

You might want to examine the Stratasys Fortus line of machines, many of them support the Ultem 9085 material.

I wonder if brass nozzles would work well or if any other nozzle material is needed?

Please go ahead and try, I am interested in the results :)

Another challenge :

Layer bonding or interdiffusion

Ultem Tg = 180° ---> T° of the building chamber = 195°

I think it will be difficult to reach this temperature only with the original heating bed and the steppers will not like it.

You have another follower ;)
