Treotham announces that their igus 3D printing filaments are now
available in Australia from Imaginables. Additionally, Imaginables also offers
a custom printing profile developed by igus that has been tested on their
Imaginables is the Australian distributor for both Ultimaker and Dremel Digilab
3D printing products.
“By partnering with leading materials companies around the world like igus,
Imaginables are able to assist customers in unlocking numerous industrial
applications using high level engineering plastics and composites on Ultimaker
machines,” says KaeWoei Lim, creative director of Imaginables.
The lightweight and durable wear-resistant igus filaments are made of
tribologically optimised polymers and are up to 50 times more
abrasion-resistant than standard 3D print materials. With two lubrication-free
iglidur materials to choose from, users can produce 3D printed functional
prototypes quickly and cost effectively.

This part was printed with an Ultimaker S5, leveraging on the printer’s
ability to print dual materials. igus I150’s tribological properties were required
to 3D-print the integrated bushings and external sliding surfaces that were in
contact with the machine.
In contrast the main frame of the component was printed with a
carbon-fibre infused nylon that – while abrasive – provided the industrial
strength and rigidity for this custom lever component. The unique combination
of contrasting material properties provided a unique and custom solution for
