3DBenchy Test Print with Fluorinar™

3DBenchy Test Print with Fluorinar™

Fluorinar™ filament is made from Kynar® PVDF

One of the most duplicated test prints in the world, 3DBenchy offers the ability to compare filament materials and optimized print parameters on a common model. At the 3DBency web page, this print is called “the jolly 3D printing torture-test”. This model is easy to print but hard to print well with all the different details.  Below are the slicing parameters in Cura that we have used for the Benchy model using different Fluorinar™ filaments.  We hope this will give you some insight into print parameters that will be helpful in your specific project!
