ULTEM™ 9085 is classified as an experimental material for advanced users.
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.
ULTEM™ 9085 prints best on the AON-M2 High-Temperature Build Plate with the use of a brim or raft. 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.
ULTEM™ 9085 is extremely susceptible to moisture uptake. Dry the filament before use at 120ºC overnight (minimum 6-8 hrs), or at 140ºC for 5 hours, in a convection oven. Always store unused material in a sealed container with silica desiccant.
For more information, see the Filament Drying and Moisture Control page.
Breakaway ULTEM™ support material is available. Do not expose the support material to high heat for extended periods of time since it may degrade and become brittle. Drying of support materials can be done at 45ºC overnight before use.
