Has anyone ever printed Ferro magnetic PLA (blackmagic3d.com) - I need help

Recommended Posts

If it is ferro magnetic, it has to be abrasive as heck. And metal fills present their own challenges. under extrusion is also a problem as the heat transfers faster and higher up the filament and can cause clogs that cause it to have difficulty passing the filament through.

Printing core suggestions needed


As mentioned the metal particles will kill your CORE nozzle quickly.

Unfortunately Ultimaker does not have any solution on the market for this atm. I hope they someday will bring us a 0.6 RUBY CORE.


For now the only solution for the UM3 comes from 3DSolex, with the "everlasting" nozzle ( lol, I would not take that literally ) 




I have not tried the "everlast" myself, but as said it's the only UM3 option atm.  For now the best/cheapest option is printing abrasives on an Ultimaker2. Here you have the option to simply throw away the worn out brass nozzle, or get a RUBY  nozzle; http://olssonruby.com/

    • "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.
