"innofil 3d" PLA plastic 2.85mm

Recommended Posts

Hello all! plastic is very hard, quickly cools. sometimes formed on the walls of hanging icicles hanging thread. I raised the temperature to 215 degrees. print speed of 35 mm sec. sometimes it twists above. forms bumps, obstacles and micro lifting. nozzle touches him and pulls desktop model and shaking. I tried to increase the retraction settings. to 5.5 m and then lowered to 4.5 mm. how to escape from it?say you need to try Z-lift function? possible on UM2 3D printer? or look now my favorite plastic from ultimaker

I have the first post of mine slightly revised, unfortunately that happens often.

I think this is the only possibility:

- A layer height of 0.05mm Provides in most cases a useful object-quality, Compared with 0.1 mm standard setting.

i use 0,18 big model long print time /Thank you! I'm probably going to buy plastic from ultimaker

PLA (polylactic acid) is a bioplastic and it is suitable for food packaging.

I think Pure PLA is unproblematic and drinking cold drinks from a PLA cup, is probably not a problem. PLA tolerates Hot drinks probably up to 65 degrees..

But even pure PLA can contain any additives, so it can be better to use for 3D printing.

Dyed PLA contains color additives (pigments), and possibly other problematic additives. Hot drinks make PLA soft. And small amounts of the additives could get into the liquid.

Some filament manufacturers advertise a few products with food compatibility.

From a colorful or uncolored PLA cup, I would take all possible cold drinks, including alcohol.

Cheers :p

Colored PLA can be of concern, because of the dyes contained therein. These dyes may be dissolved out when hot liquids contact have to PLA.

Regarding food, even if you have food-safe filament, most of the 3D prints I have seen have a bumpy or grooved surface texture due to the layer-by-layer print process. That means there are many cracks to trap food fragments and bacteria, so once it is in contact with food, it would be very difficult to clean it out completely. It might be a one-use-only thing, unless you can finish-seal it with some kind of paint or lacquer, but then that material would need to be food-safe.

and if you use 100 fill plastic? You can escape the rat holes? cracks
