3D Printer Filament Types and Temperature Chart?

What temp should you 3D print at?

A nozzle temperature of 210 to 250 °C is best, and a heated bed around 80 to 110 °C is necessary. In addition to this, ABS needs to be printed in an enclosed 3D printer so that it cools very slowly. That’s because, when ABS cools, it shrinks, and if a print cools too fast, it will warp.

What filament is best for high temperature?

ABS is a great option for a heat resistant 3D filament, as it can withstand temperatures of up to 100ºC. Besides being heat resistant, it is also water and impact-resistant, even at temperatures as low as -10ºC.

Is 220 PLA too hot?

Hot End: Ideal Range

The general range for PLA is around 190 to 220 °C. If your layers aren’t adhering to one another, heating up your hot end can usually fix it, but be careful: If the extruder is too hot, the PLA filament can become extra soft and flimsy. This can cause your prints to be messy and droopy.

What happens if PLA is too hot?

If you’re printing too hot (with any filament, not just PLA) you’re going to see stringing and blobs/oozing because the material is getting runny and exiting the nozzle in an uncontrolled manner. Because it’s uncontrolled, you will also likely see artifacts showing up in your prints.

At what temp does PLA warp?

As for various materials, PLA undergoes quite significant dimensional changes even at 70 °C (158 °F). Higher temperatures caused warping and at 170 °C (338 °F) the object completely collapsed (melted).

Which level of infill is the strongest?

Triangular Infill: Triangular infill is the strongest infill pattern because triangles are the strongest shape. They are least likely to deform and provide the best support structure behind the walls of the part.

What happens when your 3D printer bed is too hot?

This creates warping, a lack of bed adhesion, and a failed print. At the other end of the bed temperature spectrum is a too-hot bed. While more heat may sound like “better bed adhesion”, a part’s foundation could melt too much. In most cases, melting at the base makes the part stick to the bed too much.

What temp does PETG soften?

The softening temperature or temperature resistance of PETG is 85 ºC, this is intermediate between the PLA and ABS.

How hot can the Ender 3 Bed get?

The Ender 3 Pro’s heated bed can reach 110 °C, making it perfect for printing ABS, as this is the sweet spot for ABS bed temperatures. While you can get away with using lower temperatures, it’s always good to know that your printer is capable of reaching 110 °C, in case bed adhesion becomes a problem.

What filament has the highest heat resistance?

Choosing the Best Filament for Heat Resistance

As explained in our Comparing High Performance 3D Printing Filament article, PEEK Carbon Fibre (PEEK-CF) has the highest HDT, at 280°C.
