Is UM PC particularly different from 3rd party materials?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Is UM PC particularly different from 3rd party materials?

I've been doing some research in polycarbonate for printing as I'm experimenting with different materials. Having read quite a few websites giving advice on PC printing there seems to be a lot of recommendations to print at a minimum temperature of 290°C, however after loading it into my printer the default Cura profile is set to 280°C. From my first print 280°C has definitely given good results but it makes me wonder whether there are any benefits to increasing the temperature? 

 

Is it a characteristic of Ultimaker PC to print at a lower temperature and print at 290°C or higher for 3rd party PC?

 

I also have some transparent PC and I've been wondering what the trick is to get that to print clearly as I can't find much about printing transparent PC. Should I look at changing the default cura settings for transparent prints or will a well designed model be enough for good results?
