Specialty Pellets & Flake

Specialty

Specialty pellets and flake are unique materials created for specific use cases. Sometimes, common materials like PLA or ABS cannot meet the demands of a specific application and a dedicated material is needed. Specialty materials have been created for casting, smooth surface finishes, flexible parts, high clarity, and improved material strength. Due to the wide range of different applications, specialty materials are not easily classified into other common material categories. The chemical makeup of specialty materials is diverse as well, making each specialty material truly special. If you have a very specific demand for a material, there may be a specialty material to help you out!

Applications for specialty pellets and flake are almost entirely driven on the material’s design. Unlike common materials, specialty materials are often created for a specific application. Some of the most common specialty material use cases are given, but specialty materials exist for a wide variety of different applications.

Gigabot X XLT

Gigabot X XLT

The Gigabot X line of 3D printers are the next evolution in 3D printing technology. These direct-drive pellet extrusion based printers, can print from virgin or recycled pellets, flake, or regrind – and bring us even closer to the dream of a circular economy.

Capable of printing with 3-5mm plastic granules melting below 270ºC, with a larger 0.8, 1.75 or 2.85mm nozzle, Gigabot X XLT reduces the dependence on printing with filament while supporting plastic granule mixing, increasing printing speed and cost savings.

Support Filament

Support

Support material is a class of materials dedicated to serving as easy to remove support. Supports are required on a lot of complex parts, and depending on the geometry they may be difficult to remove. Support material is designed to be easy to remove, and this is often achieved in two different ways. Some support materials are made of PVA, which is often seen in glue. PVA support materials are water soluble, so PVA supports are removed by submerging a part in water. Other support materials are designed to bond with a specific filament. This helps the support material bond to the part, but also remain easy to remove. If you have a complex part that needs intricate support, consider using a dedicated support material in a dual extrusion setup.

Support material has primarily one application, acting as support! The unique properties of PVA support makes it useful beyond just being support. Sometimes, a part may need to dissolve upon contact with water. PVA support is able to meet this unique application.
