3D Printer parts made with FibreTuff PAPC


Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) or Laser Sintering (SLS) FibreTuff PAPC for anatomical bone models

FibreTuff PAPC® is an advanced biomaterial compound for 3D Printing.  The FibreTuff PAPC has exhibits anisotropic behavior which has greater strength in one direction with radiopaque qualities similar to bone. The FibreTuff PAPC has a surface texture, as well as appearance similar to bone.

The Universities, medical centers and physicians can see an improved training experience by 3D Printing FibreTuff PAPC as a bone replacement. FibreTuff PAPC has similar qualities to bone.i.e.  appearance, radiopacity, sawing and cutting ability with screw retention. 

FibreTuff PAPC is less expensive to 3D Print versus other highly engineered resins.

  • FibreTuff PAPC is a less expensive thermoplastic composition made with cellulose versus the other highly engineered resins for 3D Printer filament . Savings can be in excess of 30 to 40% with improved performance
  • PAPC can be 3D Printed at much lower temperatures than PEEK. Consequently, a lower cost for purchasing a 3D Printer. 

FibreTuff PAPC II filament is 3D Printer agnostic

FibreTuff PAPC II can be processed by many 3D Printers having an open platform. Some processing parameters are being selected for PAPC II with 3D Printer manufacturers.

3D Printing process parameters for FibreTuff PAPC filaments

All FibreTuff PAPC biomaterials for FDM require a heated bed.  The heated bed temperatures recommended for the FibreTuff PAPC can range from 80 C to 110 C. To adhere the FibreTuff PAPC to the heated bed a glue stick or adhesive sheet is required. Cube Glue is recommended for use with FibreTuff PAPC. GeckoTek is a supplier of adhesive sheet  for the heated bed. The recommended sheet for PAPC is EZ -  Stik Hot Build Plate.
