Guide: Printing PEEK (PolyEther Ether Ketone) on the UM2.

Recommended Posts

Hi All;

I got an UM2 printing PEEK well enough to complete my Masters research project.

I received great help and advice on these forums and hopefully posting the results here helps the community.

Here's a link to the system development:

and here's a link to the whole masters:

Thanks to everyone who gave me help and advice here.

I also helped set up a Rapid Prototyping lab with 5 UM2s during my final year for students to use freely; was a great success, good little printers!

Mike

    • "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.
