InnoFil3D PLA Settings for UM2

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I bought two rolls of InnoFil 3D PLA filament with my UM2 via iGo3D. I'm not really happy with the results!

While I got pretty good prints with the UM filament that was supplied with the printer, I have a hard time with InnoFil3D.

Basically when printing, the line are not "melted together", so you get a grid rather than a solid surface. You really could see the mesh of lines. The same applies to the layers.

So instead of getting a solid block of PLA (like I get with the UM2 filament), I only get a grid of filament lines.

I hope this is just about finding the right settings, but both InnoFil3D and iGo3D have not been very helpful so far.

Any help?

Thanks, Netsrac

Hmmm...the wheels look pretty much the same, but I just got a reply from iGo3D that they use Innofil3D at 230° - 235° and speed set to 80% - while I use UM filament successfully starting with 210° and then go down to 200° after the first couple of layers.

So even if both filaments might be produced by the same company, the physical specs seems to be quite different.

But I agree...interesting, specially if you compare the prices of the two materials :-)

Innofill filament should not be printed below 210, there are otherwise material cracks, visible in the extruded strand.

Adjustment of the filament diameter in Cura not forget!

There are specially designed for the UM2, adapted Innofill material with 2.85mm diameter.

I use this material at least 215-220 / 60-65 degrees / 33-49.5mm/S, and a very close nozzle to bed leveling.

Also, this material has apparently a very high water content.

Well...I started to print the first 3 layers petty hot (230°C) and then switch down to 210°C. And I also set the diameter to 2.75mm. That’s how I print at the moment and it works quite good.

I still have the issue that the first couple of layers look a bit over-extruded. So the typical gears will not work when printing, because the layers are glued together, but all the other "normal" stuff works quite well...

Just bought an Innofil 3D PLA 2.85mm filament by "accident" because the supplier I contacted didn't have any Ultimaker filaments anymore. Anyway, tried it and fortunately, it works just as good as the ones supplied by Ultimaker themselves. I kept using the same settings I used for the Ultimaker PLA 2.85mm filaments: no glue on heated bed, 60degrees heat of the bed, 200-210degrees heat for the hot end. As seen on the photos attached, the orange marvins are from Ultimaker and the green marvins are from Innofil 3D.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
