Any filaments you could staple?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Any filaments you could staple?

I was just trying to think of a filament that i could somehow puncture with maybe staples or nails?

I tried the Woodfill PLA. it didn't work.

I'm not sure where you find such specifications for materials. Any ideas?

You could heat the nail orthe staple, or the printed area, and puncture it.

What happened? I would guess the layers delaminated?

You could cheat and pre-drill, or heat up your nails/staples so the material gets a bit softer before being punctured.

Edit: too slow ;-)

Thanks so much for the answers!

I was using a normal stapler so it didn't really work. I tried with a tacker and 6cm staples.

The results were that the Woodfill PLA worked very well, however the PLA didn't work as well, the layers delaminated a little.

Thanks for the help :)

staples are just a way to get small holes? or do you want to use the staples for what staples are for? I would guess that nylon works well for the second. but i dont know if the holes close themselves when you remove the staples. will try it when im back home on monday!
