WHAT IS ABS FILAMENT?
ABS FILAMENT is Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Plastic. It comes in a wide range of colors and is strong, flexibility, malleability and has a higher temperature resistance. It has a plastic odor due to its petroleum-based origins.
ABS begins to melt at 356°F (180°C) and works at 446°F (230°C).
Please be sure to use the ABS Button (Fast Extrusion Button) which is the one closest to the tip of the LIX PEN UV when using ABS FILAMENT.
WHAT IS PLA FILAMENT?
PLA FILAMENT is Poly Lactic Acid. It also comes in a variety of colors with an attractive glossy translucency. It is produced from plant-based origins, such as corn starch and has a semi-sweet smell and is a bio-based alternative to ABS. It has slightly less strength and flexibility than ABS and is also sensitive to moisture, extreme heat and light during storage.
PLA begins to melt at 320°F (160°C) and works at 356°F (180°C).
Please be sure to use the PLA Button (Slow Extrusion Button) which is the second or top button of the LIX PEN UV when using PLA FILAMENT.
WILL WE ADD MORE FILAMENT OPTIONS?
We currently sell only ABS & PLA FILAMENT in Full Color and Transparent models on our platform at the moment.
In the future, we plan to add more options to increase the creative capability of users, artist, tinkerers and makers such as Metal, Wood and Glow in the Dark FILAMENT.
CAN I USE OTHER FILAMENT BRAND?
We recommend that you use LIX BRAND FILAMENT in your LIX PEN products. However, if you do decide to use FILAMENT from a different brand, please make sure it is of high quality because if your LIX PEN Unit gets damaged due to foreign FILAMENT of lesser quality, then it may void your warranty.
