Examples of Ultimaker PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Examples of Ultimaker PC

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.

I just remembered.....the last thing I did that was extensive PC printing was this 1 meter long Enterprise. I did get away without a lot of support due to the nature of the materials. REally handled bridging and overhangs quite well.
