Filaments.directory proudly has introduced filament mechanical properties in its search engine. The test are independent and done by Optimatter on 3D printed parts under the guidance of technical Standard procedures.
In the 3D printing world, a lot of people do not fully understand the mechanical properties of filaments. 4Delta Education came to the rescue by creating videos explaining the core concepts. 4Delta Education have created an online training platform for people who want to master the latest vocational technological advances within the world of engineering. To date, they have created courses in Computer Aided Design and 3D Printing.
As part of Filaments.directory’s collaboration with 4Delta Education you can now get 10% rebate using our link for their online courses.
We are now a member of Flam3D! Flam3D is a not-for-profit organisation representing over 70 Companies and Research Institutes in Belgium. Our goal is to promote all aspects of 3D printing and facilitate and support the creation of new value chains.
The Filaments.directory sponsor for the June contest is 3dk.berlin :
3dk.berlin enhances the possibilities of standard 3D printers (FDM): With >>k-top<< – the new developed filament – prints are now temperature resistant up to 230 °C.
The material is suitable not only for building models and making things but also for industrial appliances such as small series, prototypes and tightly measured objects.The thermoplastic compound offers all new possibilities.
“Temperature resistant objects near motor compartments or hotends can be printed reliably now”. Volker Bernhardt, CEO of 3dk.berlin.
The new material is mechanically stronger than PLA or ABS and the company is giving away 5 spools.
The rules are the same as usual:
