One of the reasons why 3D printing with Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology has become so popular so quickly is the fact that printing with filaments is easy. They are accessible, easy to handle, and generally lend themselves to a simple 3D printing process, even for beginners. However, not all 3D printing filaments are equally easy to work with. Filaments that print at high temperatures are a bit more complex and are usually reserved for projects that require high-performance characteristics.
In this article, we give you some examples of high-temperature filaments, the benefits and drawbacks of printing at high temperatures, and several tips for success. What are high-temperature filaments? To put it briefly, high-temperature filaments are 3D printing filaments that require high printing temperatures. While there isn’t a universally agreed threshold for a printing temperature to […]
