Extrusion Data File System - Update

This is a follow up to Blog Posting:  Extrusion Data File System - New Development

 

With so many polymers available it is hard to keep track of all the settings used during extrusion. Each polymer can require a different setup and one variable can affect the next. In our filament laboratory, we are always working with new grades of polymers, from new mixtures that a customer wants tested to material from plastic companies who want to convert a polymer into filament for use in 3D printing.

Currently, we have an EDF that has all of our verified polymers. Upon checking this link: you will receive an excel file upload with two sheets one for the EX2 and one for the EX6. Public EDF can be found here. The hope with the EDF is to provide you with the most accurate information for extruding filament. We are always looking to add to our library of polymers. If you find that a setting does not work or you find a better setting always feel free to let us know! Comment below if there is a polymer you want us to try!
