Evaluation of material characteristics
Please evaluate how was working with this material compared with other materials 1 - very hard, 5 – considerably easier
Which of the technical parameters had the biggest influence on material printing quality?
printing speed - when printing with 10mm/s the quality was much better than when printing with 5 mm/s, so you shouldn`t choose speeds that are below 10mm/s
To what extent printing speed influenced printing quality? 1- speed had considerable influence on quality; 5- speed had no influence on quality
Please name what you believe are the 3 most evident characteristics of this material tough, fragile, elastic, solid, soft, other – name them
flexiblesoftelastic
Describe material smell during the printing process
nothing specific
Describe material surface characteristics by physically feeling and evaluating the part.
soft,
How easy is this material to polish (with sandpaper, file or other)? 1- very hard, 5- easy
Please note what tool was used for polish test?
sandpaper
Can this material be glued? (Yes/No)
Yes
If yes, please note what sort of solvent, glue was used?
Notes
I would advice using the speed 10mm/s, as it gave me the best result out of 3 prints. You can also try increasing the speed to get the finished print faster and check how it impacts the quality of your model.
