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.

    • "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.
