Esun Aluminium 3d printer Filament – First in NZ
Our Metal filled filaments are high density 3d printer filaments with around 20% pure metal powder in it.
Please be careful of very cheap ‘metal’ filaments that usually have only 2% inside cheap PLA material.
Aluminium is the closest you can come to real silver looking 3d prints by polishing it.
In its raw state it looks like limestone which is excellent for architecture.
You can also do a rough sand to give it the look of concrete or stone walls.
Our metal filaments can be 3d printed & then sanded to make the metal inside sparkle! Steel is no exception & will certainly shine if you polish it.
These filaments are also being used in experimental applications to explore uses such as sintering, baking & smelting to make production metal parts out of them with freedom of design at extremely cheap prices.
Any 3d printer can 3d print metal filled materials but we recommend 0.6mm or larger nozzles with 02.mm (200 micron) or fatter layer height. Print slowly & at slightly higher temperatures than usual.
