New Taulman3D printing material

Post by outsider » Tue Aug 06, 2013 11:26 am

This is exciting. Stroger material then ABS, no shrinkage... almost too good to be true!

Can the Up! plus go down to about 220C with the temp mod and printing in PLA mode?

I have a small sample of the T-Glase and while I have only done a small print, it seemed to work ok at 250C on the UP.

It looks great - I really want some. If you get some more in ... don't tell me ... I'm already too poor ;)

Haha. Well you probably have a month before I get any quantities I suspect.

I was so excited I placed an order immediately...it took me a few hours before I realized it's a pre-sale. :P

Regardless, I really like that someone is thinking out of the box for materials. I love ABS and hate PLA for some reason...but I hate shrinkage! :)

Excellent! I don't think I can get a freebie this time around, though, since I wasn't able to give him much feedback on the spool of 645 he sent me - I haven't had much need for high-strength lately.

Hope he turns his attention to elastic/rubber-ish materials someday :)

Here is a little sample of a print I did today. Done at .3mm and surface print option. Temperature reduced to 250. Although this is higher than the recommended temp of 212-230 it still printed really nicely. Also the raft removal has been really easy too, which surprised me.

T-Glase has a real lustre to it too which reminds me of sterling silver when it catches the light. Something I couldn't capture in the photos.

Its super transparent.

Wow, Jamie, that's awesome. Super-transparent indeed! Can't wait to get some.

Has anyone tried it with the Up Mini? Looking really good!

That does look very transparent!
I can think of many things where transparency would be welcome.

Anyone know what this material is soluble in?

It will work fine on the Mini, provided you use the same temperature reduction.

Hmmm...... temperature reduction I'm guessing that would be in the maintenance section of the Up Mini software?
Looks good though looking forward to getting it. Is it sold in the states?

You would be wrong about that.

Any ideas on where this section can be found and adjusted?

You'll have to read through the forum, there is no temperature reduction in the software, (other than the two settings available for selecting abs or pla) you have to mod the printers hardware to get custom temps.

It's just a resistor or two and a switch. There's lots of info in other posts.

A resistor and switch is still technically a hardware mod, lol. Most people get the Octave switch. I believe it switches between 270 and 230 c in abs mode. If you are trying to achieve the 250c mentioned earlier you'll have to find a different kit or diy it.

Sorry, wasn't suggesting it wasn't a hardware mod ... just that it wasn't complex to those who might read and be wondering if it's complex. You want to add about 3.7ohms in series for every 10 degrees C that you want to reduce. We still get people saying default temp is 260 and others 270 ... I'd love to clear that up for good. I thinking maybe it starts at 270C for first layer adhesion and prints the rest at 260. I must remember to actually check that some time.

I doubt it's much more accurate than +/-5 or 10 degrees. There are tolerances on the thermocouple, the internal voltage reference, probably some resistors, the cable and connector (not gold-plated) resistances, etc. If all these errors add up to just 2% you're looking at +/- 5 degrees from a nominal 260.
