Biofila Silk

Recommended Posts

Got my biofila samples through so thought i would test the Silk first as we have a Linen thread already.

The print is very very smooth and you can not see the layers but it does not look nothing like the shiny surface as per the photo on there http://www.two-bears.eu/Startseite_E/products/biofila_silk.html only real difference in there settings was they used layers of .25 not sure if this would make that much difference but will try latter to see.

Temp: 175

Speed: 40

Layer: 1.5

Retraction on

Bed Temp: 60

I had very different results from super shiny to dull. Unfurtunately, i didn't note the settings. I remember that the nice print was with a larger nozzle ( 0,6 or 0,8 ) and 0,15 mm layer height. No idea about speed and temperature. I only did 2 more prints with 0,4 nozzle and 0,1 mm layerheight, which both didn't turn out so nice.

    • "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.
