This filament will literally make your work shine! During the day it’s a beautiful creamy color which prints to a perfect smooth finish. In the dark, your prints will start to glow like you would not believe. A special highly concentrated phosphorescent pigment is matched with our PLA/PHA compound, so it’ll print just like our other PLA/PHA 3d printing filament. The concentration of the pigment is much much higher than other glow in the dark PLA. If you’ve been underwhelmed by other glow in the dark PLA, give this a try. You will be amazed.
Glowfill and other glow in the dark filaments are abrasive due to the highly concentrated phosphorescent pigment. If you plan on using a lot of this, watch for nozzle wear and replace as needed. For very long prints, consider a nickel plated or hardened nozzle.
Advised 3d printing temperature:
Advised 3d print speed:
40 – 100 mm/s
Advised Heated bed (if you have one, not strictly necessary)
TIP! For a better and longer lasting glow time print your models with 100% infill and charge up your models with some high power lights, or just let them enjoy the sunlight for a bit.
*3d printers have lots of different types of hot-end which makes it extremely difficult to give temperature advice. We feel our temperature range holds for most 3d printers, but should be considered as a starting point for you to find the temperatures that work in your setup. Don’t be afraid to go either higher or lower then our advised temperatures if you feel your set-up needs this.
Excellent diameter tolerance
An important machine in our production are the laser measurement systems used to check the diameter of our filament real time during production. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and helps us guarantee that each spool of colorFabb 3d printing filament produced within tolerance. We can guarantee 0,05mm +/- on both 2,85mm and 1,75mm colorFabb 3d printing filament, which means you can rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material.
Within minutes of production a spool of colorFabb 3d printing filament is sealed. To go the extra mile, we’ll also seal the fancy cardboard box that we use to ship our product. You can make sure colorFabb 3d printing filament is fresh and ready for 3d printing when you’re done unboxing. Amount of filament on the spool is 750g per colorfabb’s standard packaging.
The colorFabb testlab features a wide range of popular 3d printers. We’re continuously testing on our 3d printers to keep checking the quality of the materials we produce and to develop exciting new materials for the maker community.
