fabbster uses a new, revolutionary material concept: SDM - stick deposition moulding.
The extruder of the printer is fed with special sticks developed by the fabbster team. These sticks are characterized by a cogging-shape on their sides. They are made by injection molding technique and thus are extremely precise. This innovation offers some major advantage over circular filament that is subject to slip.
The result is a precise dosage of the melt. This way you are able to print objects with optimal material properties.
The sticks are automatically fed to the extruder via a supply magazine. Also they can be easily combined to produce an object in various colors and materials!
fabbster materials have to go through a complex qualification process until they are eventually released with predefined processing recommendations for the use in fabbster 3D-printers. Production of the sticks is subject to a quality system certified to DIN ISO 9001:2008.Thus the original fabbster sticks offer the highest level of quality and machinability for ideal 3D-printing results.
