Embark on a journey with Filamet™ from The Virtual Foundry to effortlessly bring your creative ideas to life.


Print in Common FFF 3D Printers

The Virtual Foundry’s Filamet™ metal, glass and ceramic FFF 3D Printing filaments combine metal (or glass or ceramic) powder with a Polylactic Acid (PLA) binder to enable a printing process familiar to PLA users, in printers made for plastics.


Debind in a Common Kiln

After printing, the part is placed in a kiln like those found in schools and heat-treatment facilities and countless other environments, this removes the binder leaving behind a porous metal structure.


Sinter in the Same Kiln

The print is then raised to a higher temperature, causing the particles to fuse together and form a metal, glass or ceramic part. This phase of the process densifies the material, resulting in a final part that is dense and strong.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Ensure Successful Debinding and Sintering of Filamet™ Parts?

Successful debinding and sintering require careful attention to the kiln's temperature profile and timing. Begin with a gradual heating rate to properly debind your part, usually over several hours, then increase the temperature to the sintering point specific to your Filamet™ type. Cooling should also be controlled to prevent thermal shock and ensure the integrity of the finished part.

Can I Use My Regular 3D Printer for Metal 3D Printing with Filamet™?

Yes, Filamet™ is specifically designed to be compatible with standard FFF 3D printers. This allows you to print with metal, ceramic, and glass using equipment you already own, followed by sintering in a kiln to produce pure metal objects.

What Types of Projects Are Ideal for Filamet™ Metal Filaments?

Filamet™ is perfect for a wide range of applications, from intricate jewelry and art pieces to functional engineering parts and prototypes. Its versatility and quality open up new possibilities for hobbyists, artists, and professionals.
