#DidYouKnow: How The Recommended Temperatures For #3DPrinter Filaments Are Set?

The Difference Between Extruder and Melt Temperature

The temperature recommendations for 3D Printer Filaments are set according to Extruder temperature, not melt temperature. The temperature that the Extruder of a 3D Printer needs to reach to successfully Print with a Filament that needs to be heated is usually about 100° Celcius/Fahrenheit higher than the extruder_temperature|http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c7/Extrusion_of_hexagon_2nd_layer_closeup.jpgtemperature the Filament will begin to melt at. When buying your 3D Printer and/or 3D Printer Filament make sure that the temperature specifications you are looking at are for the Print/Extruder temperature of the 3D Printer and Filament, not the general operating temperature for the Printer and melt temperature of the Filament. You should be especially cautious if you have a PLA-Only Printer and want to experiment with some other eco-friendly Filaments as most of them require an Extruder temperature higher than what most PLA-Only Printers can handle.

The Importance Of A Good Power Supply

The Power Supply for your 3D Printer is just that, it provides the power your Printer needs to operate. Many 3D Printers use the equivalent of the adaptor used with many laptop computers. All Printers have a limit as to the maximum temperature the Extruder can reach to facilitate Prints. We would like our readers to take note that many 3D Printers sold today, especially those readily affordable, are able to Print at temperatures up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit/~149 degrees Celsius, which will work well for Filaments such as ABS and PLA. As far as we have seen, all Open Source 3D Printers can use third-party parts easily so you should be able to purchase an Extruder that can handle the higher temperatures that specialized Filaments, such as Laywood-D3, Taulman 618, and Taulman 645, need. When making any upgrades to your 3D printer make sure to consider the additional power that part may require.
