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. We recommend drying the filament overnight (minimum 6-8 hrs) at 120ºC before use, and to always store backed material in a sealed container with silica desiccant.
Take care to check the spool material of your filament prior to baking your material. Some vendors use low temperature materials for spools which may melt or deform at bakeout temperature.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions on this matter.
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.
