Hi,

i'am looking for a filament, that is capable for replacement parts in my 3d printer.

It is a Ultimaker 2(+) with a enclosure, so pla is melting if i am printing with abs.

 

In the future, I would also like to use material that requires even higher temperatures.

 

Any idea what material is best for my needs.

 

Thanks in advance

    Let me add BioFila PowR.

    It's some sort of PLA-derivative but the maker claims it's good for up to 130°C...

     

    Do not know whether that's really realistic with this stuff, but at least I made a test in boiling water -

    and there was no sign of softening or weakness of this stuff!

    Gives quite descent surface quality as well.

     

    Unfortunately they have only a few colors available yet.

    Thanks alot for the advice.

     

    Here are a few parts I made for my printer.

    1. Ultimaker2 Cable Chain by IRobertI from YouMagine

    2. Dual Head Ultimaker2 by UltiArjan from YouMagine


    Both didn't like printing with ABS in a enclosure.

    The dual head holes were worn out.

    The cable chain was twisted and deformed.

     

    The next time I print these parts,

    I want them to handle higher temperatures.

    You mean pictures from the bent parts?
    I have to see, if I still have them.

    ButI think, I threw it away.
