MakerBot Tough Filament Bundle
MakerBot Tough PLA Bundle
The MakerBot Tough PLA Bundle allows you to create durable, high impact strength prototypes and fixtures that save time and money. This unique filament is as tough as ABS, yet is as reliable and easy to print with as PLA. The MakerBot Tough PLA Bundle has been produced with designers and engineers in mind, the bundle includes 3 Large Spools of Tough Filament a Tough Smart Extruder+. The MakerBot Tough Filament has been tested and optimised to work with the MakerBot Tough Smart Extruder+.
The MakerBot Tough Filament can withstand a severe impact-load better than PLA and you will experience longer plastic deformation under a severe tensile load, whereas PLA will snap. The MakerBot Tough Filament responds well to sanding, thread-tapping and post-processing, it also offers greater tensile elongation than PLA under a tensile load. This filament is also suitable for printing jigs and fixtures with threaded and snap fits that can withstand repeated use.
Tensile Strength Similar to ABS
Under a tensile load, MakerBot Tough PLA Bundle will deform elastically and return to its original shape before hitting peak strength. Beyond this peak, MakerBot Tough Filament will exhibit a very long plastic deformation range before break that outperforms ABS. In contrast, PLA will simply fracture.
Tough Smart Extruder+
MakerBot have specifically engineered, tested and optimised the Tough PLA Smart Extruder+ for the MakerBot Tough PLA Bundle. MakerBot have upgraded the drive system inside the extruder to better grip Tough Filament, so it prints precisely without under-extrusions or false filament jams. Firmware automatically adapts with a tuned motor extrusion profile to ensure full, strong models. MakerBot Print automatically configures optimal settings for this extruder with your network-connected 3D printer.
The Tough Smart Extruder+ is guaranteed to work for the life of the three spools and the MakerBot Tough PLA Bundle has been optimised for the MakerBot Replicator+, MakerBot Replicator Desktop (5th Gen) and the MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer.
*Printing with any other filament will void the warranty for the Tough Smart Extruder+.
