  • *New Improved Formula* - Our PMMA is a very hard, scratch resistant acrylic. The new formula is less brittle and more durable than regular PMMA. This is an ideal material when you need a hard object, with little flex, with excellent finish quality and clarity.
  • PMMA has excellent finish quality and detail to rival that of our PLA. In addition, rigid.ink PMMA responds very well to post print finishing, such as sanding, drilling or engraving. This combined with its compatibility to acetone smoothing allows you to create perfectly finished parts.
  • That’s not all – PMMA lends itself perfectly to the process of lost wax casting due to its ability to burn away cleanly without residue. Need to model a part or some jewellery to be cast in metal? You can create a high quality finished part in our PMMA, to create a perfect cast.
  • Looking for a clear filament with excellent printed clarity? PMMA when printed hotter and slower, will create a surprisingly translucent model. Combine it with acetone smoothing to get even clearer results.
  • Pure resin quality and consistently tight diameters are important with any type of 3D filament, but even more so with specialist applications where the 3D print is one vital stage in the process to creating the final part. Use rigid.ink, a filament you can rely on for 100% printing reliability. Guaranteed.

Description

PMMA 1.75mm

Please note the following colour name changes (18.07.18):
Natural = Natural Clear

The names have changed but the colours have not, so you can continue to order the same vibrant colours you have previously.

Need a strong material that has the ability to withstand higher temperatures and produces objects that range from translucent to nearly transparent?

Then rigid.ink PMMA filament is for you.


PMMA, or polymethyl methacrylate, is a strong, lightweight and transparent thermoplastic. It is commonly known as acrylic and is marketed commercially as a shatterproof alternative to glass under the brand names Plexiglas, Lucite and Perspex. rigid.ink PMMA filament has excellent impact strength that is significantly higher than glass. In addition, it has half the density of glass with comparable transparency and UV absorption properties.

Using rigid.ink PMMA filament as your printing material gives you a couple important benefits. First, its high impact resistance makes it extremely durable and tough. Think glass, only lighter, stronger and much less fragile. This strength is why PMMA finds its way commercially into automobile headlights, aquariums, ice rink protective glass and more. So, if you need to make an object that will resist stress without breaking or deforming, rigid.ink PMMA filament is the material for you.

Second, when printed correctly, rigid.ink PMMA filament provides wonderful light diffusion. Done right, it gives beautiful results that range from translucent to nearly transparent.

rigid.ink PMMA filament is available in several colours, including natural, red, blue and green. It is acetone soluble, with a print temperature around 245C. It has a Rockwell hardness rating of R 105, which makes it comparable in hardness to PLA and significantly harder than ABS.

Most importantly, rigid.ink PMMA has a maximum tensile strength of 12,100 psi.
Compare that to 6500 psi for ABS and 8383 psi for PLA.

It also has a maximum compression strength of 17,000 psi.
By way of comparison, the maximum compressive strength of ABS is 6750 psi.

So, with rigid.ink PMMA you get a dense, hard material that gives significant advantages in overall strength. In addition, the natural translucency and transparency of PMMA filament makes it the ideal solution where a clear part or object is the desired result. In short, rigid.ink PMMA filament combines clarity and strength into one phenomenal package that you must experience for yourself.

I rarely write reviews, but the quality of the service and filaments warrants an exception. I purchased a number of different filaments (that's why you might see this review in a few places) and followed the material settings as given. I was really impressed by the outcome of each one I tried. Printed fist time and superbly! At this stage I cannot recommend this company and filaments highly enough

Printing PMMA

In short a warping disaster!

I’ve currently purchased £100 of acrylic and am in the process of building a heated enclosure to see if that helps. Will get back to you once complete and tested!

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for getting in touch and I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing warping issues.
PMMA tends to warp when being too cold and I am sure that you will be able to fix this by getting an enclosure.

Our recommended settings are: Printing Temperature: 245°C Bed Temperature: 100°C Print Speed: 30-40 mm/s (higher speeds may need slightly hotter printing temp, up to 255°C) Cooling Fans: 10-20% Ideal build chamber: Closed, keep draughts to a minimum
I hope this helps, please let me know how you're getting on or if you need any help
All the best

I love it

I got a sample of the clear material to test out and I love it, I will definitely be buying a spool as soon as it's available.

It prints very easily at 30mm/s and looks fantastic.

I was able to print a small dome with no supports using 70% fan on a Prusa i3 mk2 with no signs of drooping.
The details are great and there was no problems with warping.
