Octofiber PLA is produced from pure PLA and carefully monitored pigments and is processed under the highest quality controls. This ensures a consistent product, with accurate printed objects as a result. PLA is well known for its good 3D printing properties and is suitable for many applications like household appliances, toys and decorations.
The packaging for Octofiber is unique and does more than just contain your plastic during transport. It will make your printing much easier. Look at the video below to see how it works.
This 1.75mm product is compatible with most 1.75mm 3D printers. We have tested Octofiber on a variety of machines; Delta printers, RepRaps and Felix to name a few. All with different (dual) hotends, and nozzle diameters. We are pretty sure that it will work with your machine.
The values below are a safe starting point to obtain good results, but may not be optimal for your printer. For example: A delta printer can achieve much higher speeds than a direct drive would so it would need a higer temperature at very high speeds.
|Bed temperature||55 °C|
|Nozzle temperature||210 °C|
Use them as a starting point, optimal values for your specific printer may vary from the values shown above, depending on e.g. nozzle diameter, exact printing speed and layer height to name a few.
Many strategies are possible to get Octofiber PLA properly to your print-bed: clean glass, blue painters tape, glue stick, hairspray, special 3D printing stickers. Whichever option you choose, a heated bed is not necessary, but will greatly simplify good adhesion.
