Garolite Equivalent

Post by Jhonno »

Am I right in thinking one of these is a Garolite equivalent without the name..

I have the Tufnol Whale in 1mm and 2mm at home (couldn't decide)
Nylon adheres extremely well to it. PETG is also possible, but there is better

If you are looking for what is for almost everything, then I can recommend a Filaprint or MTplus

Not heard of those.. Will look into them.

I actually only print in PETG and Nylon currently.. Do those thicknesses work OK for you? Have you stuck them down, or using clips?

both thick ones work but it is better to glue them with a flex sheet because the nylon usually has so much strength that it bulges in the middle (if you do print in the middle, of course).
Another advantage of Tufnol is that the print bed only needs to be around 65 degrees Celsius for nylon.

At the moment I used a Filaprint for PLA, PETG, TPU, ABS and Nylon / Nylon-CF (with nylon you have to help a little with a glue stick depending on the component)

Filafarm Filaprint sounds good! Very pricey, so I'll start with Tufnol I think.. I will look to upgrade in the future. It sounds perfect for my printing habits.

If you don't mind the german website - pertinax is also an option. https://www.muellerbestellung.de/Hartpa ... Zuschnitte
