We are a small company and we know that our Stick Filaments are an interesting product for the world of FFF 3d printing but we’ve been really surprised when we have seen this two web links: here and here. In this web pages you can see plastic filaments for 3d printing called “Stick Filament”! One of them use a font and a color very similar to our logo. We are proud that someone have decided to copy our work and our brand but, please, be aware: you can find the original Stick Filament only in the site WWW.STICKFILAMENT.COMRead More
In the past months we held many workshops and presentations in many FabLab all over Italy, we met lots of new wonderful friends and makers. Lots of them are asking us to try Stick Filament; they’re really excited about the new materials that we can provide in this format. We actually try to support open source research and, according with our resources, we thought to mix up some Stick Filaments just for them. If you are a Fab Lab now you can request our FabLab Pack; write us (please, use an email with your FabLab’s own domain) and you’ll get it for testing our innovations at a very special price.
The PLA is the most widely used material for 3D printing FFF all over the world. Its greatest value is, in our opinion, the ease with which it allows to get good printing results. However, it’s not definitely considered one of the best plastic materials to create objects and products … For this reason we believe it is important to provide it with better performance, without sacrificing the quality of its printing at all; so here’s the PLA HS (High Strength). This new Stick Filament, composed of PLA and mineral fillers, allows to have a considerable resistance to thermal stress and superior resistance to bending and torsion. In WWW.STICKFILAMENT.COM site you’ll find the technical specifications but now we want to tell you about a couple of tests with which we have been able to verify the ...Read More
As you know we are very active in spreading the possibilities that the digital fabrication offers to the business world but also to all citizens. For this reason we have decided to support 3dHubs, the largest network of 3D printers in the world. In this way we believe we can spread the makers culture and, at the same time, help raise awareness among companies and startups about 3d printing. We hope you’ll follow us in our adventure in this amazing world!
This will be the week of MECSPE (from 27th to 29th of march), the reference exhibition for the manufacturing industry, the meeting point between production technologies and industrial supply chains in Italy. Design for Craft will be in the 3d print Hub, an international appointment to identify trends and development of 3D where we’ll show you some of our latest research on materials for FFF 3d printing. We’ll perform a speech the 27th at 16pm: “FROM MAKERS OF OBJECTS TO MAKERS OF MATERIALS: FILAMENT ON DEMAND PRINTING 3D.” We’ll be happy to meet you there.Read More
Our research on new materials for 3d printing is on the go. So here’s a new material called Marble. It’s awesome for crafts and all the objects that has to be finished because you can smooth it and paint easy, it just like plaster! Our Marble material contains marble powder and could be printed at 200°C without any problem (with heated bed at a low temperature). It comes in the Stick Filament format, now in 3.0 mm and soon in 1.75 mm
As you can see in the video below, Marble is ideal for hobbyists and for craft works because you can work its “chalky” surface with various tools. It will be available for purchasing in www.stickfilament.com very soon.
Lots of people asked for the 1.75 mm version of the Stick Filament. Here it is! This is the first print test with this new baby child in our family: a 1.75 mm stick in HIPS. Soon we’ll have it in ABS, PLA and the other materials previously available for the 3 mm. We plan to have it ready for the market soon.
We are printing with wax. Yes, sir!
As we say often, the Stick Filament’s system allows to print with 3d printers using new materials, that are not possible to find with extruded filaments (spools). Infact this is a brand new filament (wax based) for FFF 3d printing and here we show you one of our first prints.
We are still in beta testing but just a few words about the printing process: it requires low temperature (about 120/130°C), low speed and works well with a medium size of the noozle.
We are sure you can understand the importance of such a thing and, maybe, you’re thinking the same stuff we have in our own mind: lost wax production. After the first prints we have to try to cast objects with this production process. Then we’ll be ready for release this new Stick Filament.
We’ll let ...
Finally we have a 3Doodler pen in our lab. It works fine and we enjoy making stuff so we have tested it with our Stick Filament and… the pen is easier to use! Yes, with normal filaments supplied bundled with the pen you must stop each time the filament ends. This happens very quickly and is quite annoying. With Stick Filaments, instead, just join together the extremities in order to have a continuous printing without any problems. Great!
