Key Features

HIPS 1.75mm Filament

Robox® HIPS is a material with a unique matte finish and structure that reduces the visibility of minor flaws, making it ideally suited for producing eye-catching prototypes. HIPS can also be used with ABS as a breakaway support material or a soluble support material for PETG parts when dissolved with d-Limonene.

HIPS applications:

  • Prototypes of mechanical parts or consumer products
  • Architectural mock-ups
  • Models with large, flat surfaces
  • Breakaway support for ABS parts or soluble support for PETG parts

Nylon 1.75mm Filament - Carbon

Fiberforce NYLFORCE Carbon is composed of a tough nylon reinforced with 20% carbon fibres. This filament needs to be used in conjunction with the new SingleX™ Head, compatible with all versions of the Robox family. NYLFORCE Carbon is perfect for precise and stable prints of parts that need to withstand high temperatures, strains and impacts.

NYLFORCE Carbon applications:

  • High-performance prototypes
  • End-use parts subject to wear and tear
  • Forming and end-of-arm tooling
  • Models subject to high temperatures

Nylon PA12 1.75mm Filament

Robox® Nylon PA12 (also known as nylon 12) is a versatile engineering material that’s stronger and more durable than ABS, PETG or PLA. A high melting temperature and low friction coefficient makes Nylon 12 an excellent choice for hard-wearing, working prototypes and end-use parts resistant to chemicals.

Nylon applications:

  • Wear and chemical-resistant models
  • Working prototypes and mechanical parts
  • Living hinges
  • Flexible parts

Nylon 1.75mm Filament - Glass

Fiberforce NYLFORCE Glass is composed of a tough nylon reinforced with 15% glass fibres. This filament needs to be used in conjunction with the new SingleX™ Head, compatible with all versions of the Robox family. Glass fibres reduce nylon warpage and provide a reflective sparkle within the printed object while enabling precise, structurally strong prints. Models and parts printed with NYLFORCE Glass can be dyed with clothing dye (e.g. RIT dye)

NYLFORCE Glass applications:

  • High-performance prototypes
  • Structurally strong models
  • Precise, hard-wearing parts
  • Models subject to high temperatures

PETG 1.75mm Filament

PETG CarbonFill is an extremely stiff, zero-warp filament reinforced with 20% carbon fibre. This filament needs to be used in conjunction with the new SingleX™ Head, compatible with all versions of the Robox family. CarbonFill is ideal for models and prototypes that need to be dimensionally stable and lightweight with a uniquely matte, high quality surface.

CarbonFill applications:

  • Lightweight parts
  • Structural components
  • Functional prototypes
  • Drones, aerospace and automotive

PC 1.75mm Filament

PC-Plus™ from Polymaker ® is a polycarbonate plastic with great warping resistance used to create high quality, durable parts with excellent mechanical strength and heat resistance. PC-Plus offers a balance of useful features including temperature resistance, impact resistance and optical transparency

PC-Plus™ applicationss:

  • Temperature-resistant parts
  • Working prototypes and mechanical parts
  • Structural components
  • Translucent models

PVOH 1.75mm Filament

Robox® PVOH is a water-soluble filament designed to support overhangs of parts printed in ABS or TPU. PVOH disolves easily in lukewarm water and allows models to be printed with no fear of damage as support material is removed. The material is biodegradable when dissolved in water and offers great adhesion to styrene-based materials, which typically print at higher temperatures in heated environments..

PVOH applications:

  • Water-soluble support material for ABS or TPU

PLA 1.75mm Filament

PolySupport™ from Polymaker® is a premium breakaway support material that is easily removed in seconds by hand from PLA, PETG or TPU parts. Removal of the dedicated support material requires no tools and leaves no scarring on the model material itself, making PolySupport a time-saving, extremely efficient support material.

PolySupport™ applications:

  • Support material for PLA, PETG or TPU models

PLA 1.75mm Filament - Wood-Effect

PolyWood™ PLA from Polymaker® is 35-40% lighter than ordinary PLA. Unique among wood-effect filaments, PolyWood contains no actual wood fibres. Instead, a foaming agent is activated during the printing process which mimics wood aesthetics and smooths build lines leaving models with a significantly enhanced, high quality appearance

PolyWood&traqde; applications:

  • Ornaments and decorative models
  • Various homeware
  • Prototypes of wooden parts
  • Models for educational use

PLA 1.75mm Filament - ThermoChrome

Robox® ThermoChrome PLA is a smart/reactive material that changes colour from dark grey to light grey with exposure to temperatures above 30°C. Made from natural and biodegradable sources, PLA is uniquely suited to ecological applications. The enhanced Robox PLA formulation makes the material very easy to process and with very low part shrinkage and a high-gloss surface finish.

Applications:

  • Ecological parts or models
  • Models for educational use
  • Wearable models
  • Toys and figurines

PLA 1.75mm Filament

Robox® PLA is made from natural and biodegradable sources, making it uniquely suited to ecological applications. The enhanced Robox PLA formulation makes the material very easy to process and is available in a wide range of colours. PLA is suitable for models and parts that do not require temperature-resistance, high strength or flexibility

PLA applications:

  • Ecological parts or models
  • Lost mould casting
  • Initial prototypes
  • Toys and figurines

TPU 1.75mm Filament

PolyFlex™ TPU from Polymaker® is a flexible material that processes flawlessly due to Robox® patented needle valve technology and ThermoSurface™ bed sheet. PolyFlex™ features good elasticity and very high strain to failure, making the material well suited to models or functional parts requiring flexibility and durability.

PolyFlex™ applications:

  • Wheel and tyre prototypes
  • Footwear and wearable models
  • Protective outer casings
  • Drive or transmission belts

ABS 1.75mm Filament

TitanX™ from Formfutura® is the evolution of ABS into a warp-free filament, making it highly suited in the production of large-scale and high-precision parts with a matte finish. TitanX is an premium-quality ABS filament with excellent durability and mechanical properties, uniquely modified for printing with Formfutura 3DP-optimisation technology.

TitanX™ applications:

  • Display models
  • Concept models
  • Models with functional and testing properties
  • Gadgets, figurines and mechanical toys

PETG 1.75mm Filament

HDGlass™ PETG from Formfutura® is a premium, styrene and odour-free professional material. HDGlass™ is highly resistant to salts, acids, alkalis and solvents, and certified as safe to use in applications requiring contact with food or drink. Excellent mechanical properties, quality and extremely high safety ratings make HDGlass™ an all-round, highly versatile material.
