In today's post we are taking a closer look at a new product from our materials partner, Innofil3D.
Innofil3D describes their new Pro1 filament as:
A high-speed engineering thermoplastic that prints as easy as PLA at speeds previously considered unusable and yet it retains far better mechanical properties that exceed printed ABS objects, something that the most demanding users have always had to make a compromise on prior to PRO1.
The special filament offers major advantages in speed, strength, versatility and consistency - the perfect combination for professionals. Today, we loaded up a reel of Pro1 and put it to the test.
We printed out 2 vase designs, one with regular PLA and one with Innofil3D Pro1. We used a standard print speed setting of 50mm/s with the regular PLA version and for the Pro1, we increased this to 150mm/s! As you can see from the video below, the results were outstanding. We saved over 2 hours in printing time and the surface finish was actually better than the model printed at 50mm/s.
We are currently in the process of running more tests on the innovative Pro1 filament. Our plan is to print bigger and print faster to make more comparisons and generate more feedback for the 3D printing community. Enjoy the video and keep an eye out for the next one!
