The Easiest Fiberlogy 3D Filaments to Use and How to Print Them

The Easiest Fiberlogy 3D Filaments to Use and How to Print Them

What is FIBERLOGY and should you be printing with it?

FIberlogy is a brand of filaments manufactured in Poland and available all over the world. 

They specialize in creating professional grade 3D filaments, easy enough for beginners to print.   

This post will focus on their easiest to use filaments:

  • EASY PLA
  • EASY PET-G
  • FIBERFLEX 40D
  • ASA
  • PP (polypropylene)
  • EASY ABS

By the end you should be able to see the key differences and figure out which material type is best suited to your project's needs. 

Let's start with their basic PLA and how it's different from the cheap stuff.  

 

FIBERLOGY EASY PLA

EASY PLA is a basic material every 3D printer should have at the ready for professional looking and feeling prints, including:

  • Prototypes
  • Gadgets
  • Toys
  • Decorative items 

The filament is quite durable, which is a big bonus for a PLA.

This is due to the high tolerance used in production and pristine raw material quality.

Its properties also enable printing very precise complicated elements without an overly complex printing setup, making it a great choice for first timers as well as professionals. 

If you're looking for a great print with a not overly glossy surface finish, that's easy and straight forward from start to finish than Easy PLA is a win win. 

Pros

  • Easy to print
  • biodegradable
  • very good bed adhesion
  • perfect for printing large models
  • vivid colors ( + very wide selection) 
  • available as a refill (view product description here) 

Cons

  • Not as durable as PETG, ABS, etc.

Basic Settings:

Nozzle: 200-230 C

Bed: 50-70 C

Chamber: not required 

Fan: 75-100%

Surface: Glass, Masking tape

 

FIBERLOGY EASY PET-G

Easy PET-G combines the easiness of printing PLA with high strength material such as a professional grade PET-G. 

The biggest difference you'll see when printing Easy PET-G is the lack of stringing and burning that is normally the biggest draw back to printing with PET-G. 

Easy PET-G also has a large color selection of opaque and transparent colors and specialty colors like Silver and Onyx.

Pros

  • Easy to print
  • High durability
  • The Pure TR color is food safe certified
  • Odorless
  • Low susceptibility to shrinking and flossing compared with other PETG types
  • Resistance to acids, salts, and alkaline substances 
  • Available as a refill (view product description here) 

Cons

  • Not as easy to print as EASY PLA

Basic Settings:

Nozzle: 230-250 C

Bed: 75-85 C

Chamber: not required 

Fan: 0-25%

Surface: Masking tape

 

FIBERLOGY FIBERFLEX 40D

FIBERFLEX 40D is a thermoplastic elastomer with a shore hardness of 40D which may be printed at speeds up to 45mm / s. 

This a great material for projects that require frequent bending, such as:

  • rubber parts of machines 
  • joining elements 
  • flexible gadgets (e.g. phone cases, etc)

The rubbery like material can be extended up to 680% of its original dimensions. 

40D has high impact resistance at low temperatures. It is also resistant to abrasion and features very good chemical resistance especially to petroleum products. 

Pros

  • Easy to print flexible material
  • Fast printing speed compared with other flexible filaments
  • High durability
  • High impact resistance in low temperatures
  • Very good adhesion
  • Thermal, chemical and abrasion resistance

Cons

  • Not as easy to print as PLA
  • Not as soft as Fiberflex 30D

Basic Settings:

Nozzle: 200-220 C

Bed: 50-70 C

Chamber: not required 

Fan: 75-100%

Surface: Glass, Masking tape

 

FIBERLOGY ASA

ASA is often referred to as the next generation of ABS, 

Due to its exceptional resistance to UV radiation, high temperatures (up to 94°C) and humidity, it is perfect for printing models exposed to long-term weather conditions.

At the same time, the material is very durable and simple to print.

Bonuses: Due to the fact that ASA is characterized by low shrinkage, high adhesion and less emission of unpleasant odors compared to ABS, it can be used in printers that are not fitted with a heated chamber.

In our experience, when printed without a chamber the parts did function much the same as those printed in a chamber.

It was slightly faster to get the settings dialed in when printed in a chamber as well. 

Personally, we found it is easiest to print and get the settings figured out while printing ASA in a chamber.

If a chamber is available, by all means use it, but if you don't have one no worries. You will still be able to print ASA it may only take a little longer tweaking and getting settings just right. 

Pros

  • Possible to print in open printers 
  • High UV and weather resistance
  • High durability
  • Lasting colors
  • Temperature resistance up to 94 degrees C

Cons

  • Prints without a chamber, but prints easier and faster when used inside a closed chamber (our personaly preference)

Basic Settings:

Nozzle: 255-270 C

Bed: 90-110 C

Chamber: not required, see note above

Fan: 0-25%

Surface: glass, kapton tape, ABS juice slurry

FIBERLOGY PP

Fiberlogy PP filament creates the possibility of 3D printing with the second most used polymer in the world.

Due to its high resistance to damage and high flexibility as well as resistance to chemical substances (acids, bases, water), it has found many applications in various fields of industry and everyday use.

This is a great filament for professionals to the more advanced beginner. 

Absolute beginners can still go for it with PP as long as you are ready for a different learning curve compared to printing with PLA.

We recommend a little printing experience before getting into the more advanced materials to save frustration over a slightly longer learning curve of getting the print settings just right. 

Fiberlogy PP can be printed with almost any 3D printer without the need for a closed chamber that can reach the recommended nozzle temp of 250 C (we recommend the highest nozzle temp as it produces the best result).

(no chamber required; we have seen great success with our printing with or without a closed chamber)

Pros

  • Non-toxic and odorless
  • High resistance to chemicals
  • Resistance to mechanical damage 
  • Possible to print in open printers 

Cons

  • Longer learning curve than PET-G 

Basic Settings:

Nozzle: 220-250 C (we see best results with the hotter end of the recommended nozzle settings)

Bed: 0-80 C

Chamber: not required 

Fan: 0-50%

Surface: Packing tape

FIBERLOGY EASY ABS

EASY ABS is an easy-to-use filament that offers the ability to print using open-chamber printers and also allows you to achieve transparent AND durable prints (win-win).

The finished print can be treated with acetone vapors, which will impart a smooth structure to the prints, hiding any joints between layers. 

No chamber required and prints very well without a chamber.

For beginners or easier/faster results we recommend the use of a chamber if available.

Pros

  • Possible to print with open printers 
  • Easy to print
  • High impact strength
  • Transparent colors options 
  • Able to be smoothed with acetone vapors

Cons

  • ABS can still give off fumes so be aware of that and use good ventilation where possible

Basic Settings:

Nozzle: 235-255 C

Bed: 90-110 C

Chamber: not required 

Fan: 0-10%

Surface: Glass, PVA glue, Hair spray

That's Fiberlogy in a nut shell - fun, easy to use professional 3D filaments that come in a wide range of material types and colors.
