METAL FILLED HIGH DENSITY FILAMENT
FILAMET™ COMPARED TO GMASS™ and ECOMASS
is there a difference between theSE filaments? YES!
THE VIRTUAL FOUNDRY
TUNGSTEN METAL FILAMENT Filamet™
Our patented high-density metal filaments can be used in any 3D printer. In fact our materials can be used without requiring specialized 3D printers or modifications.
Filamet™ has a range of metal filled filament materials including Tungsten Filament. In fact our Tungsten Filamet™ has the highest density in the industry.
These materials can be used in a range of industries including manufacturing, prototyping, and radiation shielding.
GMASS™ TUNGSTEN FILAMENTS for printing in specialized 3d printers
GMASS™ filaments were developed by Turner MedTech. The metal fillers have a lower density in comparison to The Virtual Foundry materials.
ecoMASs TECHNOLOGIES compared to the virtual foundry
Our materials offer a much more affordable solution to radiation shielding. Higher density filaments from The Virtual Foundry save you money and do not contain any harmful or toxic chemicals.
Can Filamet™ be used for radiation shielding from external radiation therapy?
Yes, our metal filled filaments provide a non-toxic solution for all industries that are seeking a lead-free radiation shield.
ARE YOUR FILAMENTS FOR RADIATION SHIELDING LEAD FREE?
Our filaments are lead free and can be used to shield and create a protective barrier from gamma rays and external radiation therapy. They continue to expand their use in a range of industries including manufacturing environments, medical facilities, nuclear power plants, and rapid protoyping.
does Filamet™ require specialized printers?
No. We engineered our products to print in any 3D printer including FFF and FDM printers that were designed to print plastic parts.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR 3D PRINTING USING Filamet™
Creating parts that will shield and protect from radiation using any 3D printer and our metal filament is affordable, easy, and safe. No training required and no need to wear protective gear as they are safe to use in an open architecture environment.
WHERE CAN I BUY Filamet™ and Materials to start 3d printing?
Many of our metal filled filaments can be purchased on our website. The Tungsten Filamet™ can be purchased by contacting one of our sales representatives. They can answer any questions you have about the high density Tungsten filament and offer a range of solutions. Not only will they become a 3D printing and radiation shielding resource, they will also be able to order your filaments so you can start printing protective metal parts.
