Can the CEL Robox print polyoxymethylene (aka POM) ?  


Topic starter


Does anyone know if you can print polyoxymethylene (aka POM) on the Cel Robox using the standard head? If so, does anyone have any recommended settings or tips/warnings?

All the best,

Response from Lee at CEL UK:

I have taken a quick look at a generic POM filament available, the temperature range looks OK, the one I looked at said around 270ºC for printing. The S2 head will go to 280ºC so this is within range, I would make sure you still have a rubber jacket on the heatblock as this will help maintain this higher temperature. From what I can see there is no reason that this would not be OK on the robox but as it is not robox tested filament we would not be responsible for any issue that occurs during its use.
It also seems this can be quite hard to get to stick to build surfaces, the robox has an advantage as the chamber is sealed and heated but you may still need to experiment to prevent prints from warping when using this material.
Thank you Lee, I'll be sure to update with any notable findings if I do end up printing with POM.
