FAQ Category: Soluble Support Material | VXL Filaments
Generally, the temperature to dissolve VXL should always be the highest that your model material can take without getting soft. We have made several different types of VXL to make sure you always get the best performance out of your prints and dissolving processes. You can check this FAQ for further details.
You can use any nozzle with our material. The best substrates to use are PEI (ULTEM), BuildTak or PI (KAPTON). VXL will stick perfectly to it when the build plate is warm and easily release when cold. You should avoid using CFC, Epoxy plates or glass. The adhesion is so strong, you will not be …
Please store our VXL in the supplied aluminum bags. These have a zip lock and are packed with a large amount of desiccant. You can also use the more convenient way and store and feed VXL from our DryBox EZ. Regarding shelve life, we don’t have a definitive number yet. You can easily store VXL …
You need to consider the same as for model materials with different temperature settings. Printing VXL 111 in an open printer will lead to the same difficulties as printing real ABS in an open printer. Due to the high glass transition temperature, the model will build up residual stresses which might lead to warping or …
Yes, you can. You can use it for casting but also for making composite parts by wrapping carbon or glass fibers around the mold and fixing it with a duromer.
We design and polymerize all our materials in our own chemical plant. All VXL support materials are completely different polymers, but some of the used monomers are identical. Due to that, there is a similarity between the different polymers which makes all of the VXL support materials work with almost the same model materials.
Yes, you can print VXL support materials on any 3D printer with two extruders. Depending on the printer, different VXL materials will work better.
Yes, our VXL support materials dissolve faster than PVA/PVOH.
