< American Filament was founded by the creator of Lithophane Maker. This tool crafts (free!) lithophane .stl files in varying options – such as flat rectangles, globes, nightlight covers, and lampshades to name a few – using your image files and specifications. Be sure to give it a try! By supporting American Filament, you help to provide the resources that keep Lithophane Maker maintained and up to date. As avid lithophane printers, we love having lots of lithophane 3D-printing filament options. Our solution? Create more! We spent weeks formulating this crisp gray filament to print high-quality lithophanes and optimize transparency for the lithophane printing process. Don’t worry, it prints everything else with the same high-quality you can expect from American Filament! So, what does this mean? Finer Layer Lines, Sharper Images, Fewer Fails, Larger Nozzle Options, and Retraction Reductions. American Filament is proudly Made in America. Our PLA filament begins as amber waves of grain growing in the Great Plains and comes off our production line here in Rocket City, USA – aka Huntsville, AL. We craft the resin into precision filament that you can buy at a competitive price today, and it comes with FREE SHIPPING! Polylactic Acid, PLA, is the most commonly used 3D printer material, because it is easy to use, affordable, and has good mechanical properties. We recommend a nozzle temperature of 195-215 C, a bed temperature of 50-70 C, and a PEI or Buildtak bed for best printing results.
PLA Plastic (Polylactic Acid): the most commonly used 3D printer material due to its ease of use, affordability, and favorable mechanical properties. AF filament is produced using corn-based resin from American farms.
