FDM 3D Printing of PPSU PPSF Polyphenylsulfone Radel Best Practices

Posted by 3D4Makers . on

Polyphenylsulfone which is known as PPSU, PPSF or Radel depending on where you're from is a high performance 3D printing material that we produce at 3D4Makers. In advising clients we've noticed that a lot of them wish to use PEEK for their applications when PPSU will more than suffice. PEEK is higher performance but much more expensive than PPSU.  For many automotive and manufacturing applications PPSU is a very high performance material with high chemical and heat resistance. The material is also sterilizable and has a heat deflection temperature of 189°C. The material is ISO10993 compliant for medical applications and meets the European...

Best Practices in 3D Printing PEEK FDM Filament

Posted by 3D4Makers . on

At 3D4 Makers we are one of only a handful of PEEK FDM filament suppliers worldwide. Uniquely we have a highly pure PEEK grade which no one else produces. Due to our unique extrusion technology and this unique grade of PEEK we can achieve purities and performance that others can not. This lets the researchers and companies who then 3D Print with 3D4 Makers PEEK get higher performance from their parts as well. Despite this PEEK is still a very difficult material to 3D Print with. We see Universities and other research institutes have a number of problems with processing...

We're moving to a new location.

Posted by 3D4Makers . on

3D4 Makers is moving to a new location. We're in the middle of our move but we do not expect this to have an impact on our customers. We wanted to give you a heads up however so you could update our address information. Our phone number remains unchanged but we are now located at the Waarderweg 56, 2031 BP Haarlem.  Our offices are now a little bare but bare with us and we'll make them nice (and put in some labs).  Due to our expansion we've had to move to a new location here in Haarlem. This new location will...

3D4Makers High Performance 3D Printing Filament The Story So Far

Posted by 3D4Makers . on

A father and son team 3D4Makers was started by father and son team Jan-Peter and Jasper Wille. Jan-Peter had three decades of experience in polymers and Jasper was quickly becoming an expert user of all manner of 3D printers. They had a lot of performance problems with the filament that they bought and used however. Breaking, bubbling, roundness issues and tolerance problems abounded. They also thought that the filament at the time was not only low quality but also far too expensive. The filament that was out there was simply not made at the level of precision that they wanted...

3D4Makers at 3D Medical Expo, 31 January - 1 February

Posted by 3D4Makers . on

3D4Makers will once again be attending the 3D Medical Expo in the MECC in Maastricht. The specialist fair runs from the 31st of January to the 1st of February. Last year our attendance let us come into contact with many new medical researchers, universities, clinicians and specialized 3D printing companies. 3D4Makers specializes in complex high end 3D printing materials for industrial and medical applications. Our customers mainly consist of researchers in various fields who are doing fundamental and applied research in 3D printing in various applications.  3D4Makers has built and developed its own extrusion line. By developing our own extrusion...
