Examples of Ultimaker PC

Recommended Posts

Can anyone with experience printing with the official Ultimaker PC filament share their thoughts? The documentation mentions it's difficult to print with this material due to the high temperatures required.

 

Here are some questions I had in mind:

  • Did you have problems with warping?
  • Did the adhesive sheets and front cover that Ultimaker sells help?
  • Is it possible to print large parts and achieve good strength with the recommended default settings?

 

Any pictures of completed parts would be helpful too.

Warping can be a real problem. I have not tried the new adhesive sheets yet. Will do that when I get a bit more settled though. When not warping, it does a great job. Really handles bridging and overhangs well too. Rafts or massive pr massive brims can help.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
