Is this material ok to use on the ultimaker 3

Recommended Posts

I had never heard of this stuff, so I did some digging.

For me, this would be bad since, well, honestly, I cannot stand printing with ABS LOL But, that is me.....

Polypropylene has a considerable amount of warp, more than ABS.

Extrusion temp is within range:

Extrusion temperature for polypropylene filament is 230-260°C

Buildplate:

The build plate should be heated between 60°C to 110°C with an optimal temperature of 60°C.

PPSU (Polyphenylsulfone) Filament is way out of range of the printer by these specs I could find:

Printer nozzle temperature: 360 - 400°C

Heated bed temperature: 140°C +

Both of those variables are out of range with stock UM3. I would not know if you could mod the printer for that.

But, neither seems to have any corrosive capabilities like a carbon fiber or metal filled filament would.

    • "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.
