Nozzle: 215 – 240 °C
Printbed: 0 – 60 °C
StoneFil is a PLA-based filament which is based on our modified and easy-to-print EasyFil PLA compound and is gravimetrically filled with 50% of powdered stone.
This high “stone filling” has resulted in a 3D printer filament with remarkable aesthetic features and a significant higher material density up to 37% higher than “normal” PLA. StoneFil is an easy-to-print 3D printer filament and printed objects have an extremely matte stone-like finish with unique natural gradient colour linings resulting in an exceptional chromatic spectrum per print. Every StoneFil printed object will have its own identity and unique gradient colour shading.
General printing guidelines *
|Nozzle size: ≥ 0.4mm||Layer height: ≥ 0.15mm||Flow rate: ± 110%|
|Print temp: ± 215 – 240° C||Print speed: High / Medium||Retraction: Yes ± 5mm|
|Heat bed: ± 0 – 60° C||Fan speed: 50-100%||Experience level: Beginner|
*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There are a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends and printer offsets that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.
StoneFil has a very high filling with stone powders and therefore the filament can have a slightly more abrasive effect on brass nozzles than unfilled filaments.
When printing with filled/composite filaments it is recommended to clean your nozzle immediately after printing by feeding 15-20cm PLA filament through your nozzle. This will make sure that any potential fillers are flown out of your nozzle. It is even better to use glow in the dark PLA as the extremely hard phosphorous particles are much more likely to scrape out residual waste from your nozzle.
