MakerBot Filament | It’s Melting, It’s Melting!
Made specifically for the MakerBot® Replicator® 2X Experimental 3D Printer, new MakerBot® Dissolvable Filament works beautifully with MakerBot® ABS Filament and dual extrusion prints, giving you solid infill for delicate overhangs and objects with internal moving parts.
Our crazy-in-a-good-way advanced-materials scientist, Polymer Bill, says, “I’m really excited about MakerBot Dissolvable Filament. It opens up possibilities. You can get to 3D prints that were simply unobtainable before. It just makes you think differently about how to 3D print.”
Polymer Bill is right: there’s something a little different about MakerBot Dissolvable Filament. You can use it to print as a solid block of infill inside an object, allowing you to create detailed and delicate internal structures like the inside of this ball bearing.
MakerBot Dissolvable Filament dissolves in limonene, a common, colorless, citrus-scented solvent available online and in grocery and home stores. Just immerse your print in a limonene bath and, depending on the size and geometry of your object, MakerBot Dissolvable Filament will melt away in just 8-24 hours.
Bonus: Your print holds a refreshing citrus scent for a few days after its bath.
