MakerBot Filament

Below is a list of MakerBot Filament
MakerBot PLA Filament

//Trusted by leading companies and institutions the world over

When used with MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, PLA Filament helps produce higher-quality prints, reduce filament problems, and minimize downtime. Details such as sharp corners and edges print well and PLA printed objects will generally have a glossier look and feel.

Explore your creativity with a wide variety of colors and special properties in a filament with a consistently round diameter to ensure consistent flow through the extruder nozzle and smoth, even layers. When used with MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, MakerBot PLA Filament helps produce higher quality prints, reduce filament problems, and minimize downtime.

MakerBot Tough PLA

//Create durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures

MakerBot Tough PLA Filament is as tough as ABS and as reliable as PLA. Made with designers and engineers in mind, the Slate Gray Tough PLA Filament Bundle allows you to create durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures. It includes three spools of Tough PLA Filament and the Tough PLA Smart Extruder+. MakerBot Tough PLA Filament is rigorously tested and optimized to work with the MakerBot Tough PLA Smart Extruder+.

Tough PLA Filament is engineered and tested for consistent results. It features a tensile, impact, and flexural strength that’s similar to ABS. Plus, it’s more durable than PLA —meaning that it can flex more than PLA before it breaks. You can print jigs and fixtures with threaded and snap fits that can withstand repeated use.

MakerBot ABS Filament

//Helps you get the most out of your MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer

MakerBot ABS Filament is the best and most consistent ABS filament designed and optimized for MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printers. Like all MakerBot Filaments, it’s made in the USA and test in-house to ensure the highest quality standards and help you get the most of your MakerBot Replicator 2X.

Thanks to state-of-the-art filament manufacturing and quality control standards, when used with the MakerBot Replicator 2X, MakerBot ABS Filament helps produce higher-quality prints, reduce filament problems, and minimize downtime.

Key Features:

  • When used with MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printers, MakerBot ABS Filament helps produce higher-quality prints, reduce filament problems, and minimize downtime
  • Because it’s more flexible than PLA, MakerBot ABS is great for mechanical designs or ones that have interlocking or pin-connected pieces
  • Compared to PLA, ABS has a longer lifespan, is more impact resistant, and has a more matte look and finish
  • MakerBot ABS Filament has a high melting point, so it’s suitable for machine or car parts
  • MakerBot ABS Filament is soluble in acetone, so you can “weld” parts together with just a drop or two or smooth surfaces and create a high gloss by brushing or dipping full ABS pieces in acetone
  • MakerBot ABS filament adheres well to Kapton tape on a heated build plate

Dissolvable Filament

//Unleash your creativity! Create complex 3D prints never before possible.

MakerBot Dissolvable Filament is the best and most consistent dissolvable support filament optimized for MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printers. It’s designed for use as a solid infill material with MakerBot ABS Filament and is fully supported by the free and powerful MakerBot Desktop app. MakerBot Desktop automatically generates the needed support structure. After 3D printing your object, simply submerge it in limonene (a common nontoxic solvent made from orange rinds) and the supports will melt away.    

Key Features:

  • Create 3D prints with complexity, overhangs, and movable parts 
never before possible.
  • MakerBot Dissolvable Filament is very similar to MakerBot ABS Filament but dissolves in limonene, a common citrus-scented solvent.
  • Place the 3D print in limonene and the supports will dissolve away in just 8–24
 hours, leaving the print made with ABS Filament intact.
  • Limonene is a nontoxic solvent made from orange rinds. It’s a common, colorless, citrus- 
scented solvent available online and in grocery and home stores.
  • MakerBot Dissolvable Filament is fully supported by the free and powerful MakerBot Desktop app that automatically generates the needed support structure.
