MakerBot ABS Filament: Dissolvable
- Every filament color is comprehensively quality tested at both 100-micron and 200-micron layer resolutions on the MakerBot Replicator 2X to verify that the filament will perform every feature that MakerBot MakerWare software offers and reliably slice and print every type of printing.
- Every filament color undergoes long duration testing to ensure that there are no deviances in print quality. Every millimeter of MakerBot filament has been subjected to stringent laser testing.
- Consistently round diameter – ensures highest print quality and consistent flow through the extruder nozzle.
- MakerBot ABS Filament adheres well to kapton tape on heated build plate.
- MakerBot ABS Filament requires a heated build platform. Also, ensure your build plate is level, clean and oil-free.
- Use MakerBot ABS Filament in a well-ventilated area.
Made specifically for the MakerBot® Replicator® 2X Experimental 3D Printer, new MakerBot® Dissolvable Filament works beautifully with MakerBot® ABS Filament and dual extrusion prints, giving you solid infill for delicate overhangs and objects with internal moving parts.
Our crazy-in-a-good-way advanced-materials scientist, Polymer Bill, says, “I’m really excited about MakerBot Dissolvable Filament. It opens up possibilities. You can get to 3D prints that were simply unobtainable before. It just makes you think differently about how to 3D print.”
Polymer Bill is right: there’s something a little different about MakerBot Dissolvable Filament. You can use it to print as a solid block of infill inside an object, allowing you to create detailed and delicate internal structures like the inside of this ball bearing.
MakerBot Dissolvable Filament dissolves in limonene, a common, colorless, citrus-scented solvent available online and in grocery and home stores. Just immerse your print in a limonene bath and, depending on the size and geometry of your object, MakerBot Dissolvable Filament will melt away in just 8-24 hours. Bonus: Your print holds a refreshing citrus scent for a few days after its bath.
