Graphene 3D Lab, a company developing and manufacturing nano-composite 3D printing materials, will announce details of a newly developed water-solube 3D printer filament at the AM Forum in Ontario today.
COO Elena Polyakova will not only present details on the new material but also discuss the effect of graphene-enhanced materials for the 3D printing industry.
Water-soluble filaments are used for support structures needed for 3D printers based on FDM technology. Once the printing process is completed, the object can be placed in water to dissolve the support structures.
Daniel Stolyarov, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are very pleased with performance characteristics that our R&D team designed into this new industry leading filament. This filament is completely environmentally-friendly, non-toxic, dissolves completely in water in approximately 1 hour, and leaves no residual material.”
The filament will work with most commercially available 3D printers and Graphene 3D expects to have them to market within 3 months.
Daniel continues, “This filament reflects the core objectives of Graphene 3D. We are creating products that allow innovative designers to do more with 3D printing and are expanding the possibilities within the 3D printing environment.”
Over a month ago, the company released their Conductive Graphene Filament to the market, available through the e-commerce platform Black Magic 3D.
