3D Filaments – 3D printing filament 1.75 mm

Filament is the catridge for a 3D printer and makes it possible to print 3D models. The 3D filament is unwound from a coil and supplies material to a nozzle, which manages the flow. The drive-motor pulls the material into the extruder nozzle at a controlled rate. The filament becomes fluid at a certain temperature. When the right temperature is reached and the material is melted, a 3D print can be started.

The fluidity of filament depends on the type of filament and the required extruder- and print bed temperature. Currently, many 3D filaments are available, each with their own extruder- and print bed temperature. The most common filaments on the market are PLA and ABS. Based on our dddrop 3D printers, ABS requires an extruder temperature of 260 °C and a bed temperature of 120 °C. Our PLA filament needs an extruder temperature of 225 °C and a bed temperature of 65 °C. Besides many types of filaments, many colours of filaments are available.

There are a lot of differences between the quality of filament, which influences the quality of the final product. Providing a high quality is very important for dddrop and therefore we sell our own 3D printing filament. In this way we can quarantee the best printing conditions for a great price: good value for money.

Currently dddrop sells PLA, ABS, PETG, FLEX, HIPS and PVA filament. This is offered in a variety of colours with a diameter of 1.75 mm filament. In the future, the aim is to include more filaments in our product range.

By the purchase of dddrop 3D filament, you will receive all print settings for each type of filament. This will save you a lot of time and ensures the best printing results. For more information please take a look at the specific product pages.
