3D Printed Vase in Taulman T-Glase
June 08, 2023
Beautiful, isn’t it?
This filament just arrived today, it’s Taulman T-Glase (short for “Tough Glass”). This material is nylon based, so it’s super-strong, it has terrific optical properties, and it’s FDA approved for direct food contact.
It’s also fully reclaimable, so you can melt down failed prints and extrude new filament from it. You can even mix in up to 12% of the total weight with plastic water bottles!
I think this is going to be really nice for jewelry, like earrings and bracelets. I’m going to try some of those out soon.
This vase came out nicely, except for some minor layering defects near the top, where it curves outward. I should be able to correct that by reducing the print speed as it approaches that part of the print.
A time-lapse video of the print can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyfqfqMWJ48
