WHERE CAN I PURCHASE TUNGSTEN FILAMENT?
The Virtual Foundry is a manufacturer of a range of 3D printing filaments, materials, and sintering equipment. Our Tungsten Filament Filamet™ is a patented material that has the highest density in the industry. Tungsten is a metal PLA that offers a safe and affordable solution for a range of industries including prototyping,education, dental, radiation treatment, and manufacturing.
Can I print parts using Tungsten filament
Unlike other manufacturers of metal filaments, we create and design our patented series of filaments to print in any FDM or FFF 3D printer. Our metal filaments including Tungsten can be used in standard 3D printers that were created to print metal parts.
Printing tungsten parts is easy, requires no printer modifications, and creates parts that will not warp or shrink after printing. No need to make any adjustments to your printer because you can start printing metal parts today!
IS METAL TUNGSTEN FILAMENT A HIGH DENSITY MATERIAL
Yes, our Tungsten Filamet™ has the highest density in comparison to other manufacturers including EcoMass and GMass™. Printed tungsten parts will be heavier due to the fact that it is a higher density filament.
