Armadillo Nylon Alternative 3D Printing Filament – 3mm .5kg – SNOW

Tired of fragile 3D printed parts? Armadillo 3D printing filament is a perfect alternative to some of the most common rigid materials on the market. Armadillo filament is a high performing rigid material, providing 90% higher abrasion resistance than nylon materials. Its toughness ratings are superior to commonly used materials, 86 times greater than that of ABS. It is an excellent material to use for bridging, with virtually no warping issues. When you need a rigid product that can withstand wear and tear, the Armadillo resistance to fracturing makes it a perfect replacement. Suggested Applications: braces, fasteners, gears and protective covers. KEY FEATURES: Abrasion resistance 84% better than PLA and 60% better than ABS Chemical resistance to many materials, including naphtha, ASTM Oils #1-3, petroleum and Freon Consistent diameter and material properties providing reliable, high quality prints No heated bed required. Build platform requires same prep as PLA PRINTING GUIDELINES: Extruder Temperature:  220°C – 230°C Platform Temperature: Room temperature – 45°C Glue or blue painters tape is suggested if not using a heated bed. Print Speed:  Top and bottom layers: 15-20 mm/ sec (900-1800 mm/ min) Infill speeds: 45-60 mm/ sec (2700-3600 mm/ min) Layer 2+ use cooling fan if available.

    I find this to be one of the best filaments I’ve used I find this to be one of the best filaments I’ve used! I’m using a genuine Prusa Mk2s (settings below) and the prints look great. I’ve not invested in another commercial slicer so I’m using Prusa’s version of Slic3r with settings something like PLA. I mention this because I’ve not experimented with retraction settings using this slicer which would make the Armadillo prints even better.Why? The only problem, and it is minor, is the stringing when making jumps. Other than that,…

    I really like this stuff — easy to print, very durable. I have not used Nylon, but this stuff is VERY easy to use. In one layer it feels like teflon tape — very thin, very good bonding between passes on the same layer, and very flexible.In multiple layers it prints like very good PLA. It comes out stiff, with a little “give” but barely noticeable. It feels like a self-lubricating material (like a nylon). I used it to make an extruder plate and it’s definitely more slick than the OEM model.This prints VERY well on…

    Maybe great. But my roll is bad edit: but getting fixed! I had very high hopes for this filament, but I didn’t get a chance to properly print with it.I bought it specifically to print gears. I calibrated my heat and e-steps several times but couldn’t figure out why I was getting under/over extrusion no matter what I did.Finally decided to pull out the calipers and see what the diameter was. 1.85 in one spot, hmmm maybe a fluke…unwound…1.92, 1.71, 1.81..crazy numbers throught out the roll.I may have gotten a bad…
