Practical use of co-polyester filaments - Article from Colorfabb
It is an annoyance that every household encounters: some part like a laundry dryer breaks.
Normally what happens next: you call the service guy, they take their good time to come over, try to fix the problem, have to order in a spare part, etc. etc. But don’t stuck in the 20th century mechanics of everyday life. Let’s get disruptive. Let’s design the part ourselves, print it and replace it.
First, of course, you have to model it in Solidworks and then 3dprint it.
Part was 3d printed with colorFabb_HT Dark Gray (printing at 260 degrees and the heated bed at 100 degrees at a 0.1mm layer height).

3D printing has allowed for the creation of gadgets, cosplay and other fun stuff, but materials like colorFabb_HT, enabled by Eastman Tritan™ co-polyester technology, allow for truly disruptive uses in day to day life.
colorFabb_HT is made with Eastman Amphora™ HT5300 and is a low-odor and styrene-free material uniquely suited for advanced 3D printing users, particularly those who need their models to exhibit excellent durability, toughness and high temperature resistance with a Tg of over 100⁰C. colorFabb_HT empowers professional users to create more durable and useful items, making prototyping truly functional. This opens up new areas in which 3D printed applications can be successfully applied.
colorFabb_HT is uniquely suited for advanced 3D printing users, particular those who need their creations to exhibit excellent durability, toughness and temperature resistance.
Aside from its functionality in practical prints, colorFabb_HT Clear also allows to print near transparent prints.
colorFabb_HT is available in our webshop.
