Prints like plastic – polishes like metal.
Diameter = 1.75 mm
Spool Size = 500 g
Dense material that prints as easily as standard PLA but results in heavy cast metal looking prints that can be brushed, sanded, or polished post-print to achieve amazing results. Perfect for jewelry, costumes, props, figurines, crafting, robots, and more.Usable on most PLA-compatible printers – processing is comparable to standard PLA. No heated bed required. Process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or Bowden-type machines.
This filament is more abrasive than standard PLA. Be prepared to replace your nozzle and do first layer adjustment. Might want to try a wear-resistant and/or larger diameter nozzle for increased service intervals. Manufacturer frequently prints using direct-drive systems with 0.4mm nozzles, though suggest 0.6mm and 210-230C for the best experience.
In filament form, slightly more brittle than standard PLA, and requires extra care when handling.
