Posted · a part that transmits heat

Well, I do not know whether the subject in English is meaningful.

What I want is to print a part that do not block heat transmission or conduction og heat. Electricity conduction is not required.

Of course ABS or PLA are nor adequate.

So, is there out there any product that I could use in my printer?

Thanks in advance.

    Most materials which are thermoconducting are also electroconductive. And the other way round. A non-electroconductive usually has a bad thermal conductivity (there are a few exceptions like diamond... ;) ).

    I don't know right now what happens with the thermal resistance if a polymer material is highly doped with metal particles (or carbon fibres). In the case of the metal particles this could maybe be tested with the new Colorfabb BronzeFill. However, I would not expect a good thermal conductivity as the bronze particles are embedded in a polymer matrix (isolated islands).

    IMHO there are two possibilities: traditional (subtractive) methods with a metal block or very expensive SLM with metal.

    yes, i agree.

    I suspected we have no solution.
