All about 3D Printing ULTEM™ 1010 on open-material 3D Printers!
There still aren't many high-temp polymer printers out there -- but for the ones that can handle it, ULTEM™ is a wonder material. Extremely strong filament, rigid, and resistant to a plethora of chemicals, it can be used in automotive, aerospace, oil & gas, and even medical applications.
Printed around 360-390ºC, it definitely requires special equipment -- not your standard consumer printer. The most affordable machine to print it, at least in early 2020, still seems to be the Funmat HT. All our machines are high-temp, so the SAAM HT, Funmat Pro 410, and AON M2 are also capable.
Something you really want on your machine for ULTEM is a heated chamber -- the warping on this material is incredible, so for anything larger than a washer, having an actively heated chamber is required.
