Experience with Cheetah and Armadillo?

Recommended Posts

Since all filaments I am testing are new to me, I have a question about Armadillo and Cheetah.

The good......prints easy.

The question: Upon printing Armadillo, I have found that it made a quite sturdy piece in one respect, but still more flexible than I would have thought. I ran a couple of models in both and it seems that Armadillo is not much, if any, stiffer than Cheetah.

And, when I compare a similar size print with something like ABS (yuck) and Armadillo, the ABS is much stiffer. I don't know if it is stronger as stiffness can mean brittleness. But it is more flexible than I would have thought.

I'm looking for more stiffness than I am getting. Is this the way it behaves?

I actually thought it could have been a mislabeled spool due to the consistencies of the filaments.

    • "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.
