Whilst a few of us may instantly ponder of the drug marijuana when the word hemp is described, the material, which does indeed come of the same cannabis plant which marijuana does, has been utilized since at very least the 18th century to make such products as wax, rope, twine, cloth, paper, and actually fuel. Now, in the tradition of via the versatile plant as a building material, new 3D printing filament company 3Dom USA have only launched their new product, Entwined, an eco-friendly hemp based 3D printing filament.

Entwined is the third product launched as part of 3Dom USA’s partnership with man North Dakota based bio-composite company, c2Renew. Together, the companies have been createing truly one-of-a-kind bio-based and sustainable 3D printing filaments, which include their coffee based filament, Wound Up, and their beer based 3D printing filament, Buzzed. You can in addition remember 3Dom USA for having created a talked about Glass Filled PLA 3D printing filament earlier in 2015.

Their new release, Entwined, is created of industrial hemp which comes of a nearby Manitoba, Canada hemp producer. Compared to corn crops, which are frequently utilized in PLA filaments, hemp crops grow denser and no not need herbicides or pesticides, building them a additional ecological version for building purposes. Additionally, the company claims which their new material stands up against PLA materials in both high end and ease of 3D prints.
As you can see in the photos of objects created of the hemp 3D printing filament, Entwined does not contain any artificial dyes and has remained its effortless golden-brown color. As Jake Clark, 3Dom USA CEO explains, “It’s approximately iridescent in its talent to feature various shades and densities inside the same printed object. There’s a sizeable amount of visible bio-fill, a fewthing you don’t get with standard PLA.”

Whilst the color and grain may be distinct of PLA filaments, Entwined can yet be utilized on any 3D printing device which is equipped to 3D print in PLA materials. 3Dom USA has actually tested their new material on a variety of 3D printing device brands, such as MakerBot, LulzBot, and FlashForge, to assure which Entwined can work for you. Through testing, the company discovered which the bio-based filament prints most between 180-210 degrees Celsius, and they recommend starting off 10 degrees cooler than what you may use to print in PLA. If you are via a heated bed, which is not needd, they recommend setting it to 45 degrees Celsius.

Entwined which is being launched right now, can be purchased through 3Dom USA’s website. Each 1kg spool of filament, which is on the market in either 1.75mm diameter, or 2.85mm diameter, is available for $59 and can be shipped of 3Dom USA’s local production facility in Fargo, North Dakota. The filament itself comes spun around the 100% bio-based Eco-Spool.
Excitingly, the company has in addition given us a useful tidbit of information, as we have another new bio-based filament to appear forward to in the spring, created of switchgrass. The switchgrass filament can be officially eager for shipments in April 2016, yet preorders are possible through 3Dom USA’s site.
After coffee, beer, hemp, and switchgrass based filaments, we can in no way imagine what 3Dom USA can print with following!
