While you are free to use any brand and type of material you wish on your AON3D machine, we can only provide support for AON3D-approved materials that we have tested and developed processes for in-house, all of which can be purchased from AON3D directly by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
PC prints best on the AON-M2 High-Temperature Build Plate, but can be printed directly on Kapton tape with the use of a wide brim. Wipe down the build surface with isopropanol before use. Note that PEI surface of the High-Temperature Build Plate should be periodically resurfaced using a mill, or with an orbital palm sander if no milling services are available. Please contact email@example.com if you currently have an AON-M2 Aluminum Build Plate and would like to upgrade to the AON-M2 High-Temperature Build Plate.
PC is mildy susceptible to moisture uptake. The filament can be dried in a convection oven at 80ºC overnight (minimum 6-8 hrs), or at 110ºC for 4 hours. Always store unused material in a sealed container with silica desiccant.
For more information, see the Filament Drying and Moisture Control page.
There is currently no compatible support material for PC - prints will require self-support.
