Spoolworks Edge is for your top-priority projects. Stronger than ABS and as easy to print as PLA, Edge is designed for real-world use and functional prototyping. Take your creation to the next level with Edge.
- Nozzle Temp: 240°C
- Bed Temp: 80°C
- Bed Adhesion: Glue stick on a glass bed. Edge already sticks well, so other coatings may make the part difficult to remove
- Part cooling fan: Low to medium
- Tensile Strength, Yield. : 51.5MPa
- Flex Modulus: 2100MPa
- Elongation to break: 115%
- Izod impact (Notched): 84J/m
- Density: 1.26g/cc
- Tg: 70°C
|Elongation to break:||115||%|
Regarding bed adhesion, Edge has already been adhesion modified, so using aggressive coatings like Dimafix, Wolfbite and other 3D printing specific bed surfaces will result in parts sticking so well they pull off chunks of glass. This stuff is designed to STICK, to itself, to Scaffold Soluble Support and to the print bed. This is intentional but can cause it to stick to the nozzle a bit more than we'd like. We're working on a solution for this.
Edge bridges and overhangs well. Support materials also stick very well to, so you may need more separation between your supports and your prints.
Edge has particularly high strength and inter-layer adhesion when printed with a Volcano HotEnd.
Polymer: PET/Copolyester blend with additives.
Storage: Keep DRY. Drier filament = Stronger prints that are much more impact resistent, with better surface finish and generally prints better with improved surface finish. If filament is exposed to moisture the material can be dried at 50-60C. A heated bed and a bag with dessicant makes a decent makeshift filament warmer. Dry for 6 hours or more, longer is better.
