Magnetisches Filament gesucht

Hallo Forum,

 

ich bin auf der Suche nach einem eigenmagnetischem Filament. Also nicht Eisenhaltiges Filament, sondern eben eines das schon einen Eigenmagnetismus hat. Ich habe gelesen, das ein Doktorand aus der Schweiz eines entwickelt hat. Finde aber keine Vertriebsinfos. Kann auch sein, das es noch nicht auf dem Markt ist.

 

Sollte es kein eigenmagnetisches geben, dann würde ich einen Erfahrungstipp brauchen welches in einen hohen Eisenanteil hat und wie es sich drucken lässt.

 

Drucker ist ein Ultimaker 3 Ext.

 

Viele Grüße

 

Michael

    I hope you speak a bit of English.

     

    As far as I know, almost all magnets lose their magnetic characteristics at elevated temperatures, because the iron (or other) magnetic particles become looser and their alignment changes into random. For neodymium this is around 80...90°C if I remember well (but verify it, as I could be wrong).

     

    3D-printing is done above 200°C...

     

    So, I think you would need to print a magnetisable material, and then later turn that into a permanent magnet by exposing it to a very strong magnetic field. I don't know how that is done exactly, maybe at somewhat elevated temperature? Probably you can Google how permanent magnets are made?

     

    Or maybe you could use a magnetisable material, for example iron-filled filament, and then put some very strong permanent magnets close to the nozzle (but out of the heat), so they align the freshly printed particles while still molten, during the printing? So that when cooled, they keep that orientation? Not sure if this would work, but it might be the easiest method to try.

     

    Use an abrasive-resistant nozzle for this.

    Hi Geert_2,

     

    yes i understand what you say. I know it was clear thats impossible to print magnetic materials. I think so strange forward of my idea to use it for my prototypes 😉

     

    I think it it not possible to magnetized the material direct in the near of the nozzle. The magnet will click on the nozzle. I do a small test with one of my magnet´s. After a distance < 4 cm the magnet jump up to the nozzle.

     

    The second problem is the iron based filament will rusty after a small time. So i must print the first 1mm with TPU then the next 3 mm with  iron-filled filament the 1mm with Carbon. I think the  iron-filled filament in 3 mm it not strong enough to hold my parts.

     

    But i will test it the next 14 days.

     

     

    Do you have a recommendation for ferrous filament.

     

    Thanks

    Michael

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
