NEW CPE CF112 Carbon is here! January 08 2020
Carbon fiber reinforced CPE HG100, known as a CPE CF112 Carbon, was firstly presented at TCT Show in Birmingham in September 2019, followed by Formnext in November 2019. On both of these events, this material left a great impression with our customers, makers, and representatives of companies from various types of industries.
This highly technical material also preserves the ease of printing like with regular CPE HG100 with improved technical properties. Thanks to excellent interlayer adhesion the surface enables easy painting and priming.
Our CPE HG100 is a copolyester known for its excellent mechanical properties. With the carbon fibers reinforcement, this highly technical material improves even more in hardness, wear resistance, and pressure resistance. Noteworthy is the hardness that reaches 77 Shore D, which makes it comparable with Vinyl 303.
CPE CF112 Carbon is a very hydroponic and moisture sensitive material. Please keep the spools in a protective sachet with silica gel. However, we recommend re-drying the material before use for the best results. The recommended printing temperature is between 255-275 °C and the hotbed between 70-85 °C. Due to the carbon fibers, this composite material is highly abrasive. The printing requires the use of abrasivity resistant nozzles.
Please take a look at our chart comparing CPE HG100 with CPE CF112 Carbon.

First printable polypropylene by Fillamentum October 03 2019
Within few weeks Fillamentum Industrial will release new material under the name PP 2320. This polypropylene, which, thanks to its unique properties, will easily become an integral part of your production. It took nearly a year of development and technological testing to bring this material to perfection.
3D printing is no longer a privilege of hobby users and designers. Fillamentum Industrial aims at the field of industrial applications. Our Industrial materials will increase production efficiency, saving your time and costs. The clear evidence is this new polypropylene, which Fillamentum presented at TCT Show in Birmingham.
PP 2320 has excellent electrical insulation properties and will find its application as an alternative to PVC in the insulation of electrical cables. Like Vinyl 303, which was launched this March, it is not absorbent, so it's ideal as part of a pipeline, in making of tanks and sinks. The high temperature and chemical resistance make PP 2320 a structural component for chemical tools that also require high strength. PP 2320 by Fillamentum Industrial achieves high tensile strength over competing polypropylene filaments with greater elongation.
Polypropylene of Fillamentum Industrial has countless applications, but another unforgettable advantage is the ease of printing. PP 2320 is printed in the temperature range 225-245° C. For maximum strength we recommend printing at the upper limit of the printing temperatures (240–245 °C). Large objects should be printed in a heated chamber.
We offer a unique option for the pre-order of this material.

Have a nice printing days!
Arturo Anoni 3D printed his own glasses July 26 2017
It’s really nice to print all those characters and toys, but we appreciate when 3D printing helps in a real struggle too. For instance, when you break a part of your electronics and you want to make your own gadgets or you need a holder for something that you can’t buy online. 3D printing is here to create all real necessities and we love it! That’s the story behind this interview about new spectacle frames.
Hello, Arturo. How do you greet in Mexico?
You printed your own eyeglasses frames. How did you come up with this idea?
It is incredible to be able to change frames and color whenever you want.
Are you planning to make more of them? Maybe something more extravagant?
I would love to do more and better ones. Of course, it would be great to do more extravagant shapes too. <3.
Which software do you use for modeling?
I use Fusion 360. You must measure the width and height of the lenses, then you cover it with blue tape and take photos. Finally, the photo is vectored in Illustrator or Fusion 360. The most important thing is that people can have access to a low-cost frame for their lenses or in case of an accident.
By taking a photo, you mean from a front, side and top view?
Just from the front and that’s it.
How did you print it?
I did it on Original Prusa i3 mk2. Parameters are for PLA Vertigo Grey of Fillamentum. I use Simplify 3D 100% infill 215 degrees and 60 in bed. No more support needed. Folding the lenses with a hot air gun is enough if it is required :).
Did you use something special for finishing?
It does not need any finishing since the filament is beautiful. The pieces are assembled and they do not require any screws.
Are you really wearing it?: )
I have them right now.

We get in touch online, because she tag us in post. We talked about her wonderful work on Groot model, so you can now read, how she get this nice result.
Is printing your hobby or is it a full time job? Because we checked your Instagram and it looks pretty good there.
3D printing is a hobby at the moment although it takes up most of my free time..... but I totally love it. I bought my first printer in May 2016 and it just went from there. I've learned tons in the last year and there is such a great 3Dprinting community out there. I can honestly say I've met some great people on forums and especially on instagram. If I've had a problem I need help with, I've never been stuck for long, theres always someone there ready to jump in and help. And people are out there posting some great content, its really inspiring. So many great ideas and designs being brought to life, meaning that its one of the most exciting communities out there.
So where to go for those people? Give us please any tips for groups, webs etc
A lot of the help I’ve received is from others on instagram. If I post a pic about a particular problem, people are really quick to jump in and offer advice - it’s great. @print_itsolid really helped me out when I was struggling to get through my first prints on the Wanhao, helped me dial it in until i got the quality I was looking for.
I also joined the facebook group ‘Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus’ which has also been really helpful. Not only with troubleshooting but also being able to see what upgrades people are doing to their machines and which are worthwhile. Thingiverse also has a lot of useful groups focused on specific printers or areas. These can be really great too. I used youtube videos to help me upgrade the hotend on my printer. At the end of it you come away feeling like you’ve learnt alot more and it builds confidence. You can then go on and share knowledge with others needing advice.
There was a big “Groot boom” in the beginning of this year. This one is one of the best and complex we have seen. Have you seen the film/films?
Thank you. I'd finally gotten around to watching the first film a few weeks back. No idea why I hadn’t watched it sooner as I loved it! Sadly by this point I missed the chance to catch the second film at the cinema. So now I can’t wait to watch it when it’s released!
Which printer did you used for Timberfill, which is the print made of? In which settings?
I printed the Baby Groot (from thingiverse - thing number 2014307) on my Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus, using Fillamentum Timberfill in the light wood colour. The model prints in two parts - the head and the body. I actually scaled both parts down to 90% - mainly due to the time it was going to take to print them. I used 20% infill and 0.20mm layer height. The first print of the body failed as I;d forgotten to amend my retraction settings. But this kinda worked out well as it meant I had a piece to test painting on later. After I amended my retraction settings - reduced retraction distance and speed a little, it had no further issues and came out great. I printed the first 2 layers at 190 degrees and the rest at 185 degrees.
Which tools are you using to post process?
The only sanding I did to the model was around the neck where it had to slot into the body. I left the rest of the model as it was because it came out so well. I didn’t want to lose any of the wood feel, or any of the detail on the design. Other than that, I had a little bit of string to clear up and for this I used a sharp hobby knife. This helps keep the print clean and defined. But honestly I didn’t have a lot to do before I painted it.
We do see also some post process with coloring and moss addition. Which type of color did you used? Any sanding? How did you make the moss?
To finish the model I wanted to fully paint it. I used a combination of airbrushing and hand painting. I've always had success using Tamiya Acrylic model paints, so I went with those again for this. I started with black and hand painted all the crevices and lines with this colour. I then airbrushed the entire model in brown. This gave it some depth in the lines where the black made it look darker. Once it was dry I mixed up a lighter brown and dry brushed the over the surface. This gave the wood effect I was looking for, and because I used wood timberfill it looked and felt realistic. Once it was dry I applied an olive green to parts of the model to give it a living feel. I then added in a few more shades of green to try and add more depth and then sprayed the entire model with a clear matt varnish coat to protect the paint. Finally I used some coarse light turf I picked up from a craft shop to add the moss effect. I used a hobby tool to apply some poly cement and then carefully add in tiny bits of the moss and that was it finished. It was a really fun project, and this little guy is just too cute :).
Thank you Rachael to share your skills with us!
You are very welcome. Thanks for having me!

Spin & vape - ultimate geek relaxing combo by Staal June 01 2017
The man who introduce to us like one of the best printer in Denmark. And like we see from his work, he really is. He tried basically all of our materials and print it great. Peter Staal Hansen is working in his free time on many projects from drones to some nice gifts for friends. The man who smiles all the time, especially with emoticons.
Hello Staal, how are you?
Hello I'm fine. How are you?
Awesome! Which printers do you use for your work?
Ultimaker 2+, Ultimaker Original +, Afinibot A31 and Prusa i3 MK2.
We send you some materials for testing and like a joke one special PLA color for you. Was it a great choice?: )
I don't really know if it was a "good" color but everything looks good in PINK I guess?
That’s the sentence for Vertigo Grey. But Everybody's Magenta is pretty intense pink. What do you print out of it? It is a little challenge to send a man real pink PLA : )
I have made some fidget spinners and some tray holders for my vape juices and batteries.
Which printer did you used?
The Prusa i3 MK2
Hotend : 212 °C
Bed: 55 °C
Simplify3D for slicer.
You also did those models.... Why not just download something? Do you like to make your own models?
It's more fun to make you own models, and when you own 3D printers then why not? You will always learn something new when modelling. It should in my personal opinion be something every 3D printer owner should do.
What did you learn on this project?
To keep it simple and don't over do it when there is no need to do that.
What do you use for modeling?
I use Fusion 360. It’s a very powerful CAD program when you get to know it, and it's somewhat free to use. You can get a one year free license. I highly recommend it for anyone.
The stand for juices looks pretty easy to do, just some basic shapes boolean. But how to make the spinner shape, are there any recommendation you will give us?
For the spinners, get the basic shape down first (bearings) and then have fun with the other shape on it, and try to make one that don't look like all the other spinners. Make some patterns and see what happens. If you want to go discount on them use nuts on the arms instead of bearings. But keep in mind the heavier the arms are the faster and longer it will spin. Use a good bearing for the center.
Where is the central bearing from? Everybody are asking for where to get those...
They are from Aliexpress just search for Ceramic Bearings.
Did you use any special tricks to get nice prints from PLA? Its maybe the easiest material for printing, but do you have any tips for it?
I prefer to print in PLA. There really is no need to print in other type of filament for things that only have no other function than to stand still. PLA gives the best print result in my opinion, and is really easy to print with. If you have a good brand that is, and Fillamentum is a good PLA brand. I haven't had any issues with it yet.
Thank you, that's nice to hear. So any tips for beginners?
That's a tough question, since no printer is the same . A good first layer and speed is key to a good print. Keep first layer slow. If you want the good looking print don't print too fast with a Prusa styled printer even if it can.
How many vape juices do you have?
Way too many, or not enough I don't know, haven't counted them . ATM I like the Bubble Trouble from Big Mouth the most. I'm still "new" at vaping and need to test more flavours.
Are you the person who loves to make tricks with the smoke?
Not yet, but I do like big clouds.
And what the hell is this?:D
I know you have big hands so I printed a oversized spinner for 2 hands for you . Model made by Adriansm and almost scaled to max (270mm).
How much material did you used?
Over 300 gram.
Model of the big spinner: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2326127
Info: The big one is printed on Afinibot A31 (cr-10) the white one on Ultimaker 2+
So..... spin & vape. Ultimate geek relaxing combo.
Thank you, have a nice printing day and say hello to your boys (french bulldogs) : )
Your welcome and have a nice one.

Quick and clean 3D printout removal! March 18 2017
We all know it, your printout is finally done - and firmly stuck. You are forced to use brute force to remove your object from the pad. Knives, spatulas, and other various metal tools are used that destroy your base. That’s history now!
Prototypum has developed a special press pad composed of two parts, a fixed lower layer and a flexible magnetic top.
After printing, the upper part held by magnets can easily be removed and the upper and lower part of the printer can be immediately separated.
The pad consists of two parts, the lower fixed part and upper removable holding magnet. The gentle tread design of the pad leaves a matte surface on the models
| The Prototypum pad package includes:
● A removable top section
● A fixed lower part
● Cleaning wipes
● Feeler gauge
● Flexible scraper
"We do collaborate with people from Prototypum a long time. Working with creative and technologically savvy partners is always a great joy."
