Thermally conductive polyethylene terephthalate glycol filament. A rigid filament that is easier to print than the NYLON while still able to withstand higher temperatures than TPU. Developed with mold tooling in mind. Learn more here Ice9 NYLON A thermally conductive polyamide-based filament.
What is the thermal conductivity of various 3D printing filaments? ➞
Thermal conductivity is how well a plastic conducts heat. Most plastics don't conduct heat very well at all, which is what allows them to be 3D printed. That being said, there are a lot of potential use cases for highly thermally conductive filament, assuming you could print them. A commonly discussed one is computer heatsinks.
Thermally Conductive Polymer Materials for 3D Printing ➞
Extruded Materials Starting with the extruded materials, there are a few options available. One company in particular stands out, as they claim to have a material that is 50 times more thermally conductive than standard filaments. TCPoly has what they claim to be the most thermally conductive filament on the planet.
Conductive Filament: Best Brands (For PLA, ABS, TPU) ➞
Conductive filaments are materials that use standard 3D printing materials like PLA and ABS as a base before blending in additives like carbon and graphene to make them electrically conductive. You won’t have much luck making a circuit board with PLA, and you’d have a hard time making a working smartwatch with normal ABS and some elbow grease.
TCPoly thermal conductive filaments for 3D printing ➞
Composed of a mix of carbon-based fillers and ceramic filler particles, the 3D printing filaments are said to retain a thermal conductivity up to 50 times higher than standard filaments (10 W/mK), such as Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), polylactide (PLA), Nylon, PETG.

Thermally conductive filament Coextrusion 1. Introduction Thermal conductivity (denoted by TC or k) is an important property of all materials relating to heat transport, especially in heat-intensive applications, and expresses the ability of a material to share energy through conduction.
Research Shows Promising for Thermally Conductive Filaments ➞
The heatsinks were produced with a Minifactory Ultra 3D printer. The printer was selected due to its ability to print high temperature filaments with (dual) nozzle temperatures of up to 470°C.
Highly Thermally Conductive 3D Printed Graphene Filled Polymer … ➞
Efficient thermal transportation in a preferred direction is highly favorable for thermal management issues. The combination of 3D printing and two-dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene, BN, and so on enables infinite possibilities for hierarchically aligned structure programming. In this work, we report the formation of the asymmetrically aligned structure of graphene filled …
TCPoly Print Guide ➞
GUIDE TO PRINTING TCPOLY FILAMENTS. PRINT IT BIG, SLOW, AND DRY! PRINT BIG: Although you can print down to 0.4 mm, try to use a 0.8 or 1.0 mm nozzle if possible. Also use a large layer height (>50% of the nozzle diameter). PRINT SLOW: Reduce the linear print speed to get good layer adhesion and prevent nozzle buildup.
Progress of Polymer-Based Thermally Conductive Materials by Fused … ➞
In 3D printing, thermally conductive fillers are often added to produce filled-type polymers to improve the printed part’s thermal conductivity. The thermal boundary resistance (RB) is caused by the mismatch of phonon frequencies on filler-to-filler or filler-to-matrix, which limits the improvement of the thermal conductivity of filler-type composites [ 52 ].
