Smart Clean Filament (1.75mm or 2,85mm) is developed to clean the extruder 3D printer to complete.
This Smart Clean filament removes residual material being left inside the extruder, and can be applied in the transition between two different materials are extruded at different temperatures, or when you finish printing.
Increasingly special filaments that are being used in 3D printing. Some of them are composed of several components (A polymer more finely a granular material to provide a new properties or finishing techniques to a filament). For example, the wood filament LayWoo-D3, ceramic filament LayBrick, the Reflect-Lay or the carbon fiber filament, etc). By using these filaments it is highly recommendable to finish printing using Smart Clean cleaning Filament (1.75mm or 2,85mm) to remove all traces of polymer that can become deposited inside the extruder.
This filament cleaning is one of the basic elements for 3D printing maintenance. As Filaments Cleaner that helps the dirt that adheres to the filament (dust, etc.) do not enter into the extruder, the filament Smart Clean cleaning helps increase the life of hotend 3D printer.
Each plastic has characteristics of extrusion determined by what sometimes to change the print of a filament by another lower extrusion temperature, lowering immediately the temperature extrusion at the lower temperature will be remnants of the previous plastic (And most Tª extrusion, which are not now extrude) into the extruder, causing partial clogs. The clearest example is the change print ABS (± 240 ° C) to PLA (± 210 ° C); The remains of ABS remaining inside the extruder not print correctly will soften the PLA, which will cause that part inside the extruder is obstructed.
Smart Clean filament (1.75mm or 2,85mm) has excellent thermal stability and has a suitable viscosity to drag the material causing the blockage of the extruder and it is not easy degradation.
Therefore, it is advisable to clean the filament each time you change material or otherwise at a rate of two weeks, in order to ensure that flow is smooth and continuous, and also to extend the life of the extruder will ensure better printing precision.
