Graphene 3D Lab is extending its product range by a magnetic filament. Developed by the company itself, the new material allows for printing 3D projects with components that are attracted to magnetic fields.
The new filament is ideal for producing sensors and mechanical actuators and motors. It is available for purchase in 1.75 mm diameter, 350 gram spools through Amazon and the Company’s online store BlackMagic3D.
“It has always been the objective of Graphene 3D to create new opportunities for 3D printing. With every functional filament we introduce to the market, the types of 3D projects that can be successfully printed expands exponentially,” said Elena Polyakova, Co-CEO of Graphene 3D. “As this filament is ideally suited to switches, sensors and actuators, we also expect this new functionality will challenge more traditional manufacturers to examine incorporating more 3D printing technology into their manufacturing processes.”
Prior Graphene 3D Lab has launched the Conductive Graphene Filament. The conductive filament can be used to print conductive traces within 3D printed parts for electronics.
Further materials are to be released this year according to Daniel Stolyarov, Co-CEO of Graphene 3D: “We expect 2016 to be a significant year for Graphene 3D in terms of introducing new functional filaments. We have several new functional filaments inthe development pipeline and we expect to release several new filaments throughout the year. Availability of a large selection of functional 3D printing materials enlarges the capabilities of additive manufacturing allowing you to print projects that will only be limited by your imagination.”
