Hi community

I'd like to print something for my hamster, but i don't want to kill him because of the poisonous ingredients of some filaments. ;-)

Does anyone know which material i can use to print something for my hamster?


Cheers Co

    Would it be possible to check other toys that are made for hamster, of what material they are? I think that ABS could be a material they make toys with, than i think it would be oke to use that material.

    PET material is FoodContactAproved (do mind that printing changes the surface etc).

    However i don't know if the hamster chews on it, if any material would be 100% safe...

    Hi Ewoud

    Hm that's a good point... i'll check that. Thank you! :-)

    Well yes, i think he would chew on it, but i will be right next to him and take it away if he want to get some pieces from it. ^^

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
