Having a 3D printer without filament is sort of like having a regular printer without paper or ink. And while a lot of printers come with some filament there's a good chance you've been printing up a storm and need something new. That's why we've started carrying a complete line of 3D printing filament in a variety of colors!
This PLA/PHA bronzeFill blend 1.75mm 750g spool from colorFabb is a great material for 3D printers. This amazing one of a kind filament will allow you to print with actual bronze at home! Straight from the printer parts look almost laser sintered with a matte finish but with a bit of sanding and polishing the bronze particles will start to shine and shimmer unlike any 3D printing filament you have seen before. The weight of the material is something special, about 3x heavier then regular PLA filament.
This filament has been tested successfully on a wide variety of printers, working well on both heated and non-heated build platforms. For those users printing on a cold build platform colorFabb advises applying blue painter's tape to the build area. – The rough surface of the tape will provide enough adhesion for the first layer to stick and print almost without any warping.
It's always a good idea to check what diameter and filament type your printers can handle before purchasing!
