Add:north Textura

Recommended Posts

I recieved some samples from Add:north and have done a test print from their Textura Flare Rocky Grey.

Its basically PLA with added plant fibres which gives a matte surface and helps hiding the layer lines.

I'm pleased with the outcome regarding visual appearance, ease of print and strength (drop tested from the desk 😉 )

I work alot with cast parts and compared to cast iron it looks great, last picture.

 

First picture shows the real cast aluminum part, Ultimaker PLA and the Add:north.

Both are printed without support.

Layer heigth  is 0,3 mm in the lower half and 0,1 mm above.

That looks really nice.

What settings did you use and what printer are they printed on?

Those overhangs are printed waaay better than I have ever achieved on any type of filaments.

 

I was just about to upload pictures on my X-PLA when I saw this

Thx, it's made in a UM3

Used the settings recommended in the sample box. 190° and 70 mm/s I think, will check tomorrow and correct if it was different.

 

I didn't intend to print without support but the second extruder got clogged, but yes, did come out great.

Took a shot when printing the overhangs, looks indeed impressive
