Octofiber PLA may not be the brightest from our portfolio, but it has cool dark finish and is a true asset in you color range. It has the high Octofiber quality finish combined with the intense brown color finish. Depending on the temperature and speed settings of your printer, you can obtain different surface gloss.
Ranging from ornaments to functional objects, this filament helps you out. It comes in the well-known Octofiber cartridge box, which keeps it untangled and dustfree as long as you have it.
Octofiber PLA is produced from pure PLA and carefully monitored pigments and is processed under the highest quality controls. This ensures a consistent product, with accurate printed objects as a result. PLA is well known for its good 3D printing properties and is suitable for many applications like household appliances, toys and decorations.
This 1.75mm & 2.85mm product is compatible with most 1.75mm & 2.85mm 3D printers. We have tested Octofiber on a variety of machines; Repraps and Ultimakers of course. All with different (dual) hotends, and nozzle diameters. We are pretty sure that it will work with your machine if it looks like one listed below:
- Ultimaker 2
- Ultimaker Original
- Velleman K8200
- Reprap 3mm
The values below are a safe starting point to obtain good results, but may not be optimal for your printer. for example a delta printer can achieve much higher speeds than a direct drive would. Anyways, contact us if you cannot get it working.
Use them as a starting point, optimal values for your specific printer may vary from the values shown above, depending on e.g. nozzle diameter, exact printing speed and layer height to name a few.
Many strategies are possible to get Octofiber PLA properly to your print-bed: clean glass, blue painters tape, glue stick, hairspray, special 3D printing stickers. Whichever option you choose, a heated bed is not necessary, but will further simplify good adhesion.
