3D4MAKERS Facilan™ C8 is a new compostable 3D printing material designed to be a true manufacturing material for 3D printing.
Facilan™ C8 is the first product of the Facilan™ family used to create industrial, consumer friendly printed parts as well as high end prototypes for businesses. The first Fifth Generation 3D printing material, Facilan™ C8 has fantastic mechanical qualities and high tolerances that combine to make a material suited for high throughput and high repeatability production in Additive Manufacturing.
Facilan™ C8 has been designed, built and manufactured to outperform: C8 is the 3D printing material you’ve always dreamt of.
has higher impact strength than ABS.
has higher tensile strength than ABS.
is tougher than PLA.
is compostable at home.
has a luxuriously soft touch feel.
has the best layer adhesion properties of any FDM material.
has the best surface quality of any FDM material.
Products should be smooth with an even matte surface finish.
On most 3D printers there should be no visible layers in products 3D printed with Facilan™ C8.
For many 3D printers C8 will print best at approximately 200°C with a bed temperature of 50°C and a speed of 50 mm/s. In designs with significant overhangs and bridges best results are obtained with fans at 80%. If your model has no overhangs then putting your fans at 0% improves interlayer bonding and in so doing the final mechanical strength of your part.
To get the best results while printing we advise you to keep the 3D printer in a room where there is hardly any draft and/or temperature fluctuations. Keep the 3D printer out of the sun.
When the 3D printer is not being used it is important to keep the 3D4MAKERS C8 Filament in a bag and stored in a cool, dry and dark place until it is used again.
