    FormFutura Sustainability

    In today’s world people have become, and still are becoming, more aware of the fact that we need to find a balance between our social- and economic welfare and the environmental impact of our welfare. Population- and economic growth have put pressure on the environment by over consumption of natural resources. There needs to be a productive balance between our consumption of natural resources and economic/population growth. Sustainability is the way to find this balance. The principle of sustainability is that all elements that we need for our existence and welfare are (in)directly determined by our natural environment. Therefore we need to be in harmony with our environment in order to warrant the well-being of present and future generations.

    ReForm rPET now added to the Ultimaker Material Alliance Program

    We are excited to announce that as of June 2020 ReForm rPET has been adopted into the Ultimaker Material Alliance Program (UMAP). This is a big milestone for FormFutura as while this is not our first product joining the program, ReForm rPET is the first fully recycled filament to join – and we are really excited about that.

    The Copperhead Hotend, by Slice Engineering

    The newest hotend from Slice Engineering is light yet capable thanks to the bimetallic alloy, allowing it to reach nearly 450°C!

    The Slice Engineering Copperhead aims to be a universal hotend for nearly every type of FFF 3D printer configuration out there. The Copperhead Hotend not only features modular heat breaks for ultimate compatibility, the heat breaks are made of a bimetallic alloy for optimal heat transfer, and by nature, the Copperhead Hotend System can support printing at temperatures up to 450°C.

  • Supercharged 3D Systems Cube Pro Trio, totally rebuilt into a high end production printer.
    May 8, 2020

    Supercharged 3D Systems Cube Pro Trio, totally rebuilt into a high end production printer.

    Production parts just got easier with the supercharged Cube Pro Trio re build, Open source.

    3DXTech filaments are now in New Zealand.  These high quality products now allow most home 3D printers to produce high quality, refined and stable production parts from their desktop printers.

    Having access to the high quality 3DXTech filaments meant that I could take an old Cube Pro Trio and turn it into a fast high-temperature production printer.  This means I can now use 4 types of filaments at one time, including water soluble supports. 

    This has taken my 3D printing to another level, and means there is less waste and less issues.  When it comes to filaments, you get what you pay for - so when quality matters, the 3DXTech filaments are fantastic.

    Super charge your 3D printer!

    Why buy an expensive 3D printer but have a cheap hotend?

    It’s the most important component in your 3D printer because its sole job is to melt the plastic into printable lines and needs to be highly accurate and reliable.
