Architectural filament made from mineral powder filled ABS.

Treed Filaments is an Italian company dedicated to the manufacture of filaments for 3D printing. Within its wide range of products, you can find materials with different mechanical and physical properties or specialised filaments for a specific sector.

Treed Filaments has a range of filaments designed for use in the field of architecture and art. Caementum is an ABS based filament to which natural mineral powders have been added.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is an engineering plastic with good mechanical properties. Caementum is a filament that has all the properties of ABS and can be printed on most 3D printers on the market that have a heated bed.

Unlike PLA, ABS can be post-processed easily, and using a fine-grit sandpaper with water on Caementum printed parts will result in a smooth, shiny surface.

Most domestic FDM 3D printers do not have dual extruders, so they do not allow the combination of a build material and a specific material for support fabrication. In these cases, when 3D printing parts with complex geometries, cantilevers or bridges, the user must use the same material for part fabrication and support construction. By removing these supports, the user can leave marks on the part or even damage it. The composition of the Caementum filament has been developed to avoid this problem, allowing to remove the support areas easily, reducing the marks and obtaining an exceptional result.

Filament for architecture and art

Caementum, a filament developed by Treed Filaments, is ideal for architectural, design and archaeological applications, giving creations an effect reminiscent of stone carvings. In addition, this surface finish allows the characteristic layers of this additive manufacturing technology to be concealed.

Among the advantages of Treed Filaments filament for architecture and art, we can highlight:

  • Caementum is ideal for the architectural sector, helping to design and build to scale concrete-like designs and creations and use them as a mock-up to show clients before bringing them to reality.
  • Sometimes artists come up with projects that are difficult or impossible to execute using traditional techniques. Thanks to FDM 3D printing and materials such as Caementum, the art industry has new options and the ability to create pieces with a cement-like appearance that can be replicated as many times as desired.
  • 3D printing with Caementum provides architects, designers, artists or archaeologists with a very interesting tool with which to show the world their works, models or replicas with a realistic shape and appearance. This can be very useful in the architect-client or artist-client relationship, where it is not always easy to express an idea or project.

The use of architectural materials from the Italian Treed Filaments brand, such as Caementum in the architecture and art sector helps users to create their designs with a realistic concrete look, reducing time, risk of failure and costs compared to other manufacturing or creation methods.

In order to achieve a good result during 3D printing with Caementum filament, it is advisable to follow the recommendations below:

  • The printing base must be at a temperature of 90 - 110 °C.
  • Extrusion temperature between 220 - 240 °C, if the temperature drops below 190°C the 3D printing process must be stopped.
  • ABS is prone to warping, so it is recommended to use products such as BuildTak, Kapton TapeMagigoo or DimaFix to ensure proper adhesion of the part to the base.
  • It is recommended to use a hardened steel nozzle, as it contains mineral particles that can degrade the inside of the nozzle. This deterioration affects the quality of the 3D print.
  • Avoid leaving the filament inside the nozzle for more than 20 minutes.
  • It is recommended to use a closed printer, in case you do not have one, avoid air currents.
  • ABS is a material that absorbs humidity. For excellent results we recommend drying at 70 °C for at least 2 hours for 1 kg spools in a filament dryer such as PrintDry.
  • To prevent 3D printing filaments for FDM and FFF printers from absorbing moisture, it is recommended to store them in boxes such as PolyBox Edition II so that the filament is free of dust particles and does not contain moisture.
