This metal filled filament is made from blend of fine metal powder and standard base material such as ABS or PLA. It provides a shiny metallic finish and more weight to your model design. The metal filament varieties for this 3D filler includes Bronze, Brass, Copper, and Aluminum.
The metal powder percentage that’s infused in every filament may vary but the presence of this metallic finish allows the filament to be more heavy than standard filament plastics. So, the parts that’s printed with the metal-filled filament weigh significantly, despite using of the base material. Some of the common applications in using metal filament include busts, jewelry, sculptures, and replicas for museums.

Metal filled filaments are fine metal powder mixed into a base material. It provides a beautiful metallic finish and weight. Compatible with major 3D printers brands, the Metal Filaments actually contain fine metal dust variety like Aluminum, Copper, Bronze, Brass. Since metal powder is generally heavy in weight, it makes the filament heavier than the common 3D filament plastics.
Create 3D printing models with realistic metal finish with this 3D metal filament. For an authentic metallic look for designs like jewelry, statues, replicas, trophies, swords – this metallic filament is best for that detailed shiny finish. You can achieve that smooth metal piece you always wanted to print, load it and transform your stencil into reality.
Metal filaments are unlike regular plastic material, so it requires hardware requirements. Before you proceed with 3D printing, make sure that the 3D printer meets several recommendations to make sure you achieve best 3D print quality.
Be sure to use wear-resistant nozzles and that you’re aware of bridging limitations. This isn’t a metal plating material. Always check the filament path when you work on sharp bends and tune the retraction settings to prevent issues such as clogging, nozzle worn out, poor bridging, and blobs on the surface print.
Metal filled filaments are usually abrasive if they extrude on the hot end. A brass nozzle is soft and can quickly wear out. Upgrade to a steel nozzle, which is resistant, if you want to print the filament correctly.
Since metal properties are generally heavy material, metal filled filaments doesn’t work well as 3D printing bridge, connector or overhang. To minimize the overhangs required for your 3D print, just lower the layer height. This allows significantly more improved overhang performance in your projects
Since most standard filaments usually absorb moisture from air, this makes filament brittle and degrade in quality. We recommended that you keep any unused metal filament in sealed vacuum storage container or place it in zip lock bag, along with a desiccant.
Always wanting to achieve that professional look in your next creation, this 3D Metal Filament is your best choice for glossy printing. Print out toys, cartoon characters, anime, automobile, or any miniature structure that you like.
