Armadillo Nylon Alternative 3D Printing Filament – 3mm .5kg – SNOW

Tired of fragile 3D printed parts? Armadillo 3D printing filament is a perfect alternative to some of the most common rigid materials on the market. Armadillo filament is a high performing rigid material, providing 90% higher abrasion resistance than nylon materials. Its toughness ratings are superior to commonly used materials, 86 times greater than that of ABS. It is an excellent material to use for bridging, with virtually no warping issues. When you need a rigid product that can withstand wear and tear, the Armadillo resistance to fracturing makes it a perfect replacement. Suggested Applications: braces, fasteners, gears and protective covers. KEY FEATURES: Abrasion resistance 84% better than PLA and 60% better than ABS Chemical resistance to many materials, including naphtha, ASTM Oils #1-3, petroleum and Freon Consistent diameter and material properties providing reliable, high quality prints No heated bed required. Build platform requires same prep as PLA PRINTING GUIDELINES: Extruder Temperature:  220°C – 230°C Platform Temperature: Room temperature – 45°C Glue or blue painters tape is suggested if not using a heated bed. Print Speed:  Top and bottom layers: 15-20 mm/ sec (900-1800 mm/ min) Infill speeds: 45-60 mm/ sec (2700-3600 mm/ min) Layer 2+ use cooling fan if available.

Product Features

  • The toughness of a nylon with enhanced tensile strength
  • Excellent bridging capabilities and virtually no warping
  • Shore Hardness = 75D
  • Suggested Applications: braces, fasteners, gears and protective covers

Startup Uses 3D Printing for Low-cost Carbon Fiber Bike Frames

This article details news of Arevo Inc.’s 3D-printed carbon-fiber bike frame. It only costs $300 USD to produce it by the way.

The 3D printing world is abuzz with the latest news about Arevo Inc.’s new bicycle.

Sculpteo debuted their concept for a 3D printed bike at CES 2017. It features fully interchangeable parts, and 70% of them are built on the Sculpteo platform.

A German startup took their bikes with 3D-printed tires for a test ride recently. This bike tire supposedly never goes flat — which is totally awesome.

Up to this point, previous 3D-printed have been interesting but impractical. They were a few that looked good, but few could replicate the low weight and durability of carbon fiber.

If you know anything about cycling, you know that carbon fiber is the go-to material road bikes. They’re not as durable as steel, but they weigh a whole lot less. However, it’s basically impossible to repair.

So how did Arevo Inc. develop its $300 USD 3D printed carbon fiber bike frame?

How Arevo cut Costs and Automated Production

3D printing continues to democratize many industries and biking is next.

Arevo Inc. defied previous 3D printed bicycle fabrications by creating the world’s first carbon fiber bicycle. They hope to use this technology to create bicycle parts, as well as space vehicles, aircraft, and other materials.

They circumvented the often labor-intensive carbon fiber process using a “Deposition head� and a robotic arm. The entire creation process requires little-to-no human labor, keeping costs down to $300 USD per frame.

The head simply laws down various carbon fiber strands, melting the thermoplastic material to bind all of the strands. This all happens in one simple and quick step with no human involvement.

You can see in this quick video just how labor intensive carbon fiber production is. That makes this breakthrough all the more exciting for bike enthusiasts at any budget.

While it’s not available just yet, the startup has potential partnerships on tap with a few bike manufacturers.

But their goals stretch beyond two wheels since they can “print as big as you want�, says backer Jim Miller.

With backing from the venture capital sect of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Arevo Inc. will surely see success as they continue to produce 3D-printed carbon fiber materials.

How would you spec out your 3D printed carbon fiber frame?
