Has anybody tried F-electric filament?

Recommended Posts

1/4 pound of F-electric filament

We're ordering a small roll of it to try, for a fixture that requires an electrical contact.

It's a form of PLA, which we haven't been terribly happy with. Sheds particles when it wears, which mess up our parts processing. On the other hand, the nylon we've been printing these out of is non-conductive, which complicates things for us, because we need electrical contact for parts sensing.

This stuff is obviously conductive enough for our purposes, but in light of the above, how are it's mechanical properties? Wear resistance?

Anybody have some experience with it?

I have no experience with this, but I'd love to hear more about yours once you receive it.

I tried the proto-pasta  conductive.... printed rather easy... think I still have a small sample.

Thanks, I'll have to check that out, too, in the coming year.

Do the mechanical properties seem any different from the usual PLA? Harder, slipperier, anything like that? Or just standard PLA that happens to conduct?
