ITherm Conference

June 1, 2019  •  Las Vegas, NV

Matt Smith presented at the IEEE Itherm conference in Las Vegas on research with Oak Ridge collaborators. The research used TCPoly filament to print heat sinks in different orientations and predict the temperature rise when heated. The research paper can be found here.

New Materials Announced

May 19, 2019  •  Atlanta, GA

We are excited to announce a new 3D printing filament available, Ice9 Rigid. We have been working hard to expand our materials and in total we now have three 3D printing filaments available under the thermally conductive Ice9TM brand: Ice9 Flex, Rigid, and E-insulating (electrically insulating). Ice9 Rigid is a Nylon composite based a proprietary filler system including aerospace grade carbon fibers. In addition to the new filament, we have upgraded our existing filaments, details below.

Pre-ordering is now available for Ice9 Rigid with first shipments in June. Click on the links above for ordering information and datasheets, or contact us at filament@tcpoly.com for more info.
