How can I check the compatibility between Tough PLA and TPU95A

Posted · How can I check the compatibility between Tough PLA and TPU95A

Good day guys


I have to print the model (image attached) with Tough PLA and TPU95A (black platelets with Tough PLA and the white matrix with TPU95A). I have checked the compatibility between them in the technical information but it is not supported. Can you recommend me some tests in the printer before to print the final model? How can I conclude that the compatibility is good?

I appreciate your orientation.

    There isn't a "one size fits all" for material combination testing. I usually use the *actual part* I am trying to print in dual material and tweak settings based on what I am seeing for errors, defects, etc.


    It's not a clean-cut science for dual material FDM, but once you get a profile made for this part you can usually use it with minimal changes.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
