High Temp, High Resolution Filament?

Posted · High Temp, High Resolution Filament?

I am looking for a high temp filament that is fairly easy to print on our Ultimaker S5, that will be able to print at 0.06mm layers. We currently outsource these parts in a SLA resin called Accura Bluestone (which has a HDT of 270°c once thermally post-cured). We need it to take about 145-150°c without warping. The parts will be under NO load, and will be metalized most of the time. Is there any such filament out there? Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    Polymide CoPA may be worth a try, the TDS says the Vicat softening temp is at 175°C. https://cdn-3d.niceshops.com/upload/file/PolyMide_CoPA_TDS_V3[0].pdf

    I don't know about 0.06mm layers, never tried that. Do you achieve the resolution you need with other, not high-temp materials on your S5? 

     

    BTW, another option might be to let someone print these parts in FormLabs High Temp resin, that may be cheaper than Accura Bluestone.

    I'll look into it, thank you! I've run the Ultimaker Tough PLA at 0.06mm and the results are real good, almost as good as SLA at 0.10mm. The parts we get made out of Bluestone aren't super expensive (more than doing them in-house obviously), but the lead times are usually 1-2 weeks. We're trying to keep as much in-house as possible (we run 2 large frame 3D Systems SLA's, 1 Stratasys PolyJet, 1 Ultimaker S5, and are taking delivery of a BigRep PRO FFF soon).
