Netherlands-based 3D printer filament developer FormFutura launches three engineering-grade filaments: TitanX, ApolloX and Atlas Support.
The new materials are the result of extensive research and optimisation of industrial-grade thermoplastics and are based on zero-warp engineering. Available as of today, all three filaments feature enhanced first and interlayer adhesion properties and can be printed directly on a heated glass plate.
TitanX™ is a revolutionary new high-performance and FDM-optimized engineering filament. TitanX™ is the evolution of ABS into a warp-free filament extremely suitable for 3D printing large scale and high precision engineering objects. With TitanX™ we present an industrial-grade ABS-type of 3D printer filament with unsurpassed mechanical properties which is uniquely modified with its FDM-optimization technology.
ApolloX™ is a professional high-performance engineering filament, which is based on an uniquely industrial-grade modified ASA (Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate) compound. ApolloX™ has been modified to have great thermal stability, improved filament flowing behavior, zero-warping and flawless first- and interlayer adhesion allowing you to 3D print objects with an almost injection molding precision.
Atlas Support™ is the next generation in water-soluble support materials for FDM 3D printing. Atlas Support™ is the result of extensive research to PVA improvement which has resulted in an unique formulation where numerous PVA grades have been blended into one superior water soluble support material.
Atlas Support™ has a far more improved thermal stability compared to “normal” PVA and by that ensures a much more stable dual extrusion printing process. Clogged nozzles because of dual extrusion printing with PVA now belong to past tense.
