Mitus ABS Filament 3mm (2.85mm) 1 kg for 3D Printing, Made in the USA, Cool Gray

Mitus brand ABS filament is superior quality ABS designed for ultra smooth and reliable printing in 3D printers. ABS is the gold standard in 3D printing, renowned for its high strength. Mitus brand filaments are produced using only 100% virgin materials resulting in superior quality filament. One common problem with cheaper China made filament is the rampant use of cheap plastic fillers such as calcium carbonate, which makes ABS very brittle and leads to extruder clogs. Mitus brand filament combines the highest grade raw materials with leading precision equipment. In fact, all Mitus brand filament is measured during extrusion with an industry leading four laser micrometers which controls the diameter and roundness, producing a tolerance of +/- 0.03mm. Another common problem with China made brands are the voids or cavities in the middle of the filament which cause uneven printing and even failures. Mitus brand filament is guaranteed to be void and cavity free.

All Mitus ABS filaments are produced with vibrant and rich colors, each being thoroughly tested and evenly distributed. Every Mitus color has a pantone color chip number for exact reproducibility. All Mitus ABS spools comes with a net weight of 1 kg ABS. Each Mitus ABS spool comes vacuum sealed with 99.98% of moisture removed and includes a desiccant pack for extra protection. The spool features a unique double zipper storage bag which allows for the reuse and storage of the ABS spool after opening. Mitus brand guarantees complete satisfaction with every filament spool.

  • Diameter: 2.85mm +/- 0.03mm
  • Net weight: 1kg
  • Proudly made in America

Special printing note – Depending on the 3D printer used, a slight increase in flow rate from 100 to 110-140 may be required. Additionally, some 3D printers will extrude more smoothly with a 5°C increase in temperature, from 240°C to 245°C for darker colors and 235°C to 240°C for lighter colors.

Product Features

  • 100% virgin material without cheap plastic fillers or regrind
  • ABS Print Extrusion Temperature: 230 – 245°C
  • Quad laser micrometer for controlling diameter and roundness tolerances, within +/- .03mm
  • Pantone color: PQ-COOLGRAY6C and hex color code: A7a8aa
  • Proudly made in the USA

DON COOL Hub Allows Navy & Marines to Up Their Skill Sets with 3D Printing

cool-2With the wide range of 3D printing innovations being introduced on a continual basis, it’s possible—but doubtful—you could have missed out on all that’s being put to use by the Navy today. From the advent of on-demand 3D printing to sailors creating highly functional 3D printed components for use at sea, it’s clear that the Navy is more than interested in this technology that’s just seeping into the mainstream—they are totally cool with it.

This couldn’t be demonstrated more literally than in one of their newest programs. In use now, DON COOL is a new hub for both the Navy and Marines. Web-based and centralized, it allows for a wide range of information to be put together from other sources and different tiers (federal, state, and local) regarding:

  • Certifications
  • Licenses
  • Apprenticeships
  • Growth opportunities

rexAll of these are related to corresponding occupations by both the Navy and Marines, according to Keith Boring, the Director of the US Navy’s Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL). And what’s really exciting is that the organization is using the Zeus 3D printer in their latest endeavors, a machine we’ve been following since its inception.

As personnel work to get new licenses that match their skill sets in the military, whether Navy or Marines, they are able to use the DON COOL system, provided out of the Navy COOL Program Office, which is situated on an Air Force base populated by 1,000 sailors. And while many may think of the military as rigid and operating in a back to basics format, they are actually making great strides not just to see that their Navy and Marine Enlisted (Active and Reserves) are able to learn about new technology, but also that they further their careers while creating new products for life at sea.cool

 “With the help of the trusty AIO Zeus, we’ve turned a 2D sign into a 3D eye-catcher,” says Boring. “Our AIO Zeus is giving the Navy COOL program a professional appearance, and our employees happy.  And as we all know, a happy Sailor is a productive Sailor.”

zombieAnd while we’ve seen numerous parts created by sailors in the past, here in the COOL program, you can see that those in the Navy and Marines are having some fun too, from creating 3D printed busts of their entire shop staff to a steam-punk T. Rex, a zombie candy dispenser just in time for Halloween, and even a collection of 3D printed Buddhas.

Some of the designs are quite complex, but what really sets them apart is the level of finishing that was obviously involved. This new program will allow these creative sailors to have a marketable skill set in the future as well as one that they can put to use now in their current jobs. Discuss in the DON COOL forum at 3DPB.com.
