3DXMAX® PC (Polycarbonate) 3D Printing Filament

3DXMAX® PC (Polycarbonate) is a premium high-heat 3D printing filament made using Lexan® Polycarbonate from Sabic. PC has some of the best mechanical properties & high-heat resistance in the 3D Printing world (Tg of 147°C). Our PC allows for the printing of functional prototypes and production parts with very fine detail and excellent surface quality. 3DXMAX® PC is suitable for use in both consumer-grade and industrial FDM/FFF printers that have a heated print bed and extruders which can reach upwards of 300°C.

This polymer was developed specifically for 3D printing functional prototypes and end-use parts. It was formulated to allow for ease of printing coupled with exceptional mechanical and thermal properties.

PC™ Polycarbonate is an excellent choice for printing parts that would ordinarily fail when using standard materials such as PLA, PETG, or ABS. We consider this an excellent bridge in performance between these lower performance materials and higher priced materials such as Ultem or

  • High thermal properties, with a Tg of 147°C
  • Amorphous structure gives it low, near isotropic shrinkage
  • Excellent ductility and impact resistance
  • Very low odor while printing
  • Wide processing range of 280-310°C
