Phaser FPV is your premier destination for quality PC filaments in Australia; with reputable brands like Prusament, Sunlu and eSUN included in our selection. When it comes to high strength and high durability filaments, PC (or polycarbonate) is a wise choice.
With such high heat and impact resistance, PC 3D printing filament is frequently used for a wide range of rigid and resilient products; from carabiners and platform jacks to coffee sleeves and electronic cases.
Items made from polycarbonate will maintain their structural integrity up to 150 degrees Celsius, and this material can be bent without snapping; making it highly desirable for printing products that need a certain level of flexibility without sacrificing strength.
While polycarbonate produces tough, flexible and highly durable finished products, printing with this material can be difficult to perfect.
PC filament requires very high print temperatures, and can often warp or ooze during the printing process – this is largely due to the fact that polycarbonate absorbs moisture from the air. However, these issues can be prevented by storing your PC 3D printing filament in air-tight containers free of any moisture.
Here is a list of the hardware required for optimal 3D printing with PC filament:
At Phaser FPV, we recommend lowering your printing temperature to around 280 degrees Celsius if you notice that the PC filament has absorbed some moisture. This can prevent bubbles or other “blemishes” from appearing in the print.
