Akdeniz Chemson’s VBee® VINYL is a unique polymer for 3D printing. It has many superior qualities by nature of its chemistry but also significant advantages for 3D printing. Overall, these properties make it perfectly suited for serious 3D printing of parts that are meant to last – an ideal industrial 3D printing material.
The following recommendations and technical guidelines have been derived from extensive hands-on 3D printing experience, gained by Akdeniz Chemson technical personnel and in cooperation with external field testers.
The majority of the information provided here focuses on Akdeniz Chemson VBee® VINYL technology specific to filaments but many of the core fundamentals will apply to all forms of VBee® VINYL (also granules/pellets).
Printer size and actual printing filament diameter, whether supplied as filament or generated in situ from pellets, also have an important influence on the 3D printing of VBee® VINYL. These will be highlighted in more detail below.
It is important to understand that Akdeniz Chemson VBee® VINYL is not quite as easy to print as some other polymers, mainly due to its thermostability limitations. It should thus not be the material of choice for the casual 3D printer but rather for users that want to achieve excellent results for applications that would normally use Vinyl or require technical properties that Vinyl can provide. VBee® VINYL can be printed successfully and with excellent results if basic guidelines are followed.
