Be one of the first to discover this next step in 3D printing
Here at MatterHackers, we are always searching for new ways to find success with 3D printing, sometimes that means functional parts with very strong materials, and sometimes that means beautiful aesthetic parts whose key feature is the smile it puts on our faces. Quantum is the first material in a long time that had us both mesmerized by its beauty and inspired by its capabilities. We have been printing with it for a while, but what excites us the most is what you are going to print with it. Don’t miss this opportunity to be one of the first people to print with this new material and be part of the evolution of 3D printing.

Tips on how to make the best prints with Quantum
- Smaller melt zones are better for Quantum, Volcano style hotends can produce mixing that reduces the visual effect of Quantum. E3D v6, Mosquito, and most stock printer hotends are perfect.
- Before starting a big print, we recommend printing an Quantum Alignment Coin that will tell you exactly where the color change line is on your specific printer and filament setup. The angle will be different for every printer setup, but we have found that if the printer and filament stay in the same orientation, the alignment doesn't change from spool to spool.
- Quantum prints look the best when the outside perimeters of the part are all printed in the same direction, and we have found that many slicers do not do this by default! To make great prints with Quantum, MatterControl does force outside perimeters to always travel in the same direction, you can download for free right here.
