UV Filament testing

Recommended Posts

Nice. Is it reversible? Or just one way?


Yes it is reversible when you bring it back indoors it changes back to original color..


thanks for sharing!

and how much time to shift color?


As soon as the sun light hits, it takes a matter of seconds to turn and as soon as you bring it back indoors its a matter of seconds to change back...

Must admit the results are not as instant if it is not sunny but over cast it does take about 30 seconds to change and not as bright...

Hi Didier

Not to sure of the brand will check when i get in but i think it is a cheap china filament..

I stumbled across a company local to me selling filament, so i asked some questions about them and they offed to send some samples belongs i posted the results to there website, they was so impressed with what i did, that they send me samples of all the new filament they get in....

    • "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.
