Recommendations and general Information

General information about our products

All the products of GD Filament are manufactured in Bulgaria, giving special thanks to Mr. Necdet Abi for the help and know-how, which he shared unreservedly with us. All products are manufactured from the highest grade polymers available on the market in Europe and the USA.

PLA Max is a relatively new material on the stage of the PLA filaments. Its most interesting quality, compared to the standard PLA is its much greater strength.

ABS + is also an interesting product. In this case, we are able to achieve the lack of the ABS-specific filaments odor and this enables it to work on an open-ended printer.

Recommended conditions for working with filaments of GD Filament

ABS +

  • Nozzle temperature: 240 °C-260 °C

  • Odorless-can also be worked on open-ended printers
    • Note: One option (specifically for closed-type printers-like Ultimaker) is the use of HIPS as a support material, which is dissolved after printing in D-Limonene.

For PLA and WOOD, bed: glass \ mirror, we recommend 10-15% water suspension of C200 (polyvinyl acetate adhesive). Apply with a brush a thin layer on the pre-heated bed and leave a few minutes to dry. If, after cooling, your workpiece can not peel off – just soak the water/mirror and leave it for a few minutes. Water will penetrate under the workpiece and will dissolve the C200 – suspension. This suspension is very durable and with a single application can be worked for more than a month.

For ABS +, PC/ABS, bed: glass \ mirror, we RECOMMEND 10-15% abs+ suspension in acetone. We also recommend to apply with a brush in a thin layer on the form heated bed. It can also be sprayed, in the presence of a convenient for you smear (beware, because the acetone can dissolve some plaits splashes).

For PA12 , a special epoxy bed should be used.

A good universal solution is the use of PEI bed
