* Our PLA tends to print best on lower temps. For white we recommend starting at 185° and moving up 5° if you’re not extruding well. We print at 195° when we’re printing faster and around 185° when we’re doing slower, more intricate prints.
* Your printer may like things a bit hotter (that’s a sexy printer), so run some tests to get a feel for how our filament works with your exact printer and extruder.
* For colors we recommend about 5° hotter on average. Some colors, like red, have us printing as much as 10° hotter. But for the most part we bump from 185°/190° to 190°/195° when we’re printing colors.
What is metallic filament? It’s PLA-based filament with real metal; roughly 35% metal, 65% PLA. That means that you can print using most standard 3D printers, with no noxious odors.
Print it a bit hotter than our typical filaments. We recommend extruding it faster than average, so that the metallic elements don’t separate from the PLA and clog your extruder. Keep it flowing.
- Print temp: 200-220C
- Speed: 50 – 100 mm/s
- Extruder: .4 or .5 nozzle. We don’t recommend printing with a .35 nozzle.
Polish with fine grit sanding paper for a smooth surface. We’ve not tested it yet, but others have suggested “copper polish” for the finishing touch.
