Voltivo ExcelFil™ is a high grade, high density 3D printing filament available in both PLA and ABS perfectly suited for and tested with a wide range of 3D printers.
ExcelFil™ PLA and ABS filament allows for easy extrusion due to its tight laser-controlled tolerances, smooth flow characteristics over a large temperature range, rapid cooling and a high tensile strength.
It comes in a large range of colors and in two diameters to fit most printers available. We ship ExcelFil™ on sturdy recyclable spools, vacuum sealed with a desiccant bag to ensure it arrives moisture free.
Unlike many other brands, we provide full support information about our range of 3D printing optimized plastic filaments on our Support Site. We also provide practical filament clips and custom spool-holders and for other printers as downloadable STL 3D model files in our repositories.
PRIMARY FEATURES AND BENEFITS

- Only A grade PLA/ABS raw plastic materials from USA and German suppliers, no scrap or recycle material
- Formulated for low printing temperature for less blobbing and stringing
- Strong layer bonds and very rigid when cooled
- Support website with tested print temperature guidelines and other support tools
- 3.2mm Hub diameter for lower friction
- Arrives packaged in vacuum shrink wrap with a desiccant bag to ensure controlled humidity levels in transit
3D Printing is a fascinating technology now entering the office and the home. Originally developed for industrial use in prototyping and small batch production, now everybody can materialize 3D objects from their own desk. The quality and material properties of the filament used to feed the printer greatly influences the final result.
We were not satisfied with what the market provided and developed our own formulation of only the highest quality ingredients from reputable sources. We then further fine-tuned the composition based on the feedback we got from the local maker community to incrementally improve variables like flow speed and glass transition points.
We arrived at a product we are proud of, and which we hope you will enjoy printing with our ExcelFil™ ABS and PLA filaments as much as we do!
We in average spend 2 weeks to test and characterize each new PLA or ABS material, diameter and color combination in many different semi-automated print tests. Above and beyond the manufacturing quality control, we re-run these printing tests on different 3D printers like Makerbot Replicators (PLA 1.75), an Ultimaker 1 (PLA and ABS 3mm), an UP Plus (ABS 1.75) and 2 RepRap variants. These tests are run on a quarterly basis to ensure we always ship a product that provides reliable and repeatable print results.

Creating successful prints also depends on the correct print settings. 3D printing still unfortunately is not as straight forward as desktop printing. The combination of PLA and ABS material, the color (also called masterbatch), the slicing software and the printer hardware used all greatly influence successful print results. Based on the characterization tests outlined above, we make available a great amount of information for specific use cases providing the user with a solid starting point. Each spool is labeled with a QR-Code which provides direct access to our specific ExcelFil™ 3D Printing Filament support database entry. The support site is also smartphone-ready for convenient quick lookup on-the-go.
We care a great deal about our environment and are trying to strike a balance between convenience and protecting resources. Our PLA filament is made from renewable polymer sources. Namely plastics derived from corn starch and sugarcane. However for specific applications, which req
