Formfutura Introduces SKULPTable Printer Filament

Dutch 3D printing material developer and manufacturer has recently launched another special editable filament, releasing SKULPT. This new filament comes in four different colours, knowing: Black, Copper, Gold and Original.

SKULPT is a unique SKULPTable 3D printer filament, which is materialized by Thibra3D. This filament allows one to post process SKULPT 3D printed objects similar to sculpting clay. By projecting a temperature of ± 70° C on the SKULPT 3D printed object it will be possible to tweak and finetune the 3D printed object by sculpting it or remodelling it slightly.

It’s possible to adjust visible 3D printed layers, imperfections and removed support structures very easily into a smooth and detailed object. The SKULPT filament offers you the possibility to adjust, cut, carve, or add material to your 3D printed object to finish it just the way you want it to be.

    • Use a heat gun to project a temperature of ± 70°C to the part of the SKULPT 3D printed object which requires finetuning by sculpting and/or remodelling
    • Easily smooth out visible 3D printed layers and imperfections caused by blobs, zits and removed support structures
  • Very easy to paint with acrylic paints
    • SKULPT 3D printed object only has to be degreased with soap and lukewarm water before painting
