Topic: [ABS] - MG94 And GP35 Review And Comparison
My setup is a vertical Filastruder with a Filawinder. I also have a melt filter nozzle with a slightly bigger drilled out hole. No modifications... yet. Most of the GP35 prints were done prior to mods on my printer, but most of the MG94 prints were done after mods were installed on my printer.
Extrusion temperature: 186°C
Extrusion rate without colorant: 8-16 inches per minute
Extrusion rate with colorant: 6-10 inches per minute
Average diameter of filament: 1.64mm
Tolerances: + or - 0.02mm
Comments: This is the same resin that comes with that Filastruder. The surface of the extruded filament is very smooth and shinny. I got 10 pounds from http://3dsupplysource.com/ , and have extruded about 3 pounds worth. The pellets are small and rectangular looking. Colorants mix in fine, but can cause the extrusion rate to slow dramatically.
This is what the MG94 pellets look like. The calibration cube they are in is not printed in MG94, however it is printed in GP35.
Some filament spooled on a printed spool. I love those printed spools.
MK6 printed at 100 microns.
Left carriage of Lawsy,s carriages. There are two nuts that have been glued in by an acetone and ABS slurry in the piece for those of you that are wondering.
Filawinder gear printed at 100 microns.
Extrusion temperature: 184°C
Extrusion rate without colorant: 8-10 inches per minute
Extrusion rate with colorant: 2-6 inches per minute
Average diameter of filament: 1.61mm
Tolerances: + or - 0.02mm
Comments: The surface of the extruded filament is coarse. The pellets are spherical and larger than MG94 pellets. I bought. 10 pounds from http://3dsupplysource.com/. I have extruded about 6 pounds. Colorants mix in fine, but can cause the extrusion rate to slow dramatically. These pellets were also cheaper then MG94 pellets.
This is what the GP35 pellets look like. The calibration cube they are in is printed in GP35.
You can see that the filament on the spool does not shine like MG94.
This is part of a spool coaster I designed. Printed at 300 microns.
Overkill Y bracket. Printed at 100 microns.
Filawinder piece- I can not remember the name. Printed at 300 microns.
Overall I prefer MG94 since it has been more widely tested, and has an excellent extrusion rate. If you need fast extrusion get MG94. If you're not in a hurry to extrude, and you want to save a few bucks get some GP35. I have not seen any difference in prints between the two materials.
Any questions? Ask away!
Send me a PM if you see a grammar mistake, so I can fix it.
