LAY-FELT is an exciting and new innovation from the creator of LAYBRICK and LAYWOO-D3. We are proud to offer the newest experimental filament from inventor Kai Parthy. LAY-FELT is best characterized as a felt like filament that is highly porous. This material is made from a rubber-elastomeric polymer and a PVA-component. That means that part of this filament is water soluble. Once you rinse this material in water, the PVA component disappears and the rubber polymer remains as your micro-porous object. LAY-FELT is ideal for making filters, 3D membranes, semipermeable membranes, and any flexible yet felty object. LAY-FELT comes in a .25kg package.

After finishing your print you will notice that the material is strong and rigid. However, rinse the print with water then your object becomes micro-porous & elastic. This is ideal for printing soft and flexible rubber like objects. To get full flexibility from your print you should leave the printed object sitting in tap water for 1-4 days.

We recommend printing LAY-FELT between 225°-235°C. However, remember that each printer is slightly different so you may need to increase or decrease the temperature by 5°C until your print looks perfect!

LAY-FELT is part of the new PORO-LAY series which also includes LAY-FOMM 60 and GEL-LAY. The PORO-LAY series is made by taking two different materials such as an Elastomer (rubberlike substance) and then blending that substance with a soluble component such as PVA. So after rinsing your print in water the PVA component dissolves and the print is then flexible and porous.

  • POROLAY filaments are dedicated for experimental use. This is bleeding edge filament so start with an open mind!
  • All filaments after printing are stiff and unbreakable and printable with standard home-printers (repraps)
  • All objects are hot-sealable after drying
  • Micro-porous means micrometer-dimensions! Pores are not visible to naked eyes.
  • All POROLAY-objects can be filled not only with water, try to use emulsions of oil, glycerine, inks, salty solutions, or ionic liquids to make it conductive!
  • you may print without heated bed
  • the objects have near zero warp (deformation while printing)
  • Design rules: print less walls/shells and less filling % to shorten rinsing time
