This iron-bearing premium 3D printing filament is attractive to magnetic fields. The finely ground iron particles also add a distinctive heft to 3D printed objects. On average they will weigh 50% more than a comparable item printed in PLA.
PRODUCT ALERT (2)
Due to the blended metal powder found in this filament, we strongly recommend using a LulzBot Tool Head with a .5mm nozzle for optimal 3D printing performance.
While our internal testing with the LulzBot Hexagon Hot End has not encountered measurable wear on the tool head, pay attention for any print quality changes.
Works with: LulzBot Mini, LulzBot TAZ 6, LulzBot TAZ 5, LulzBot TAZ 1-4, LulzBot TAZ 5 Hexagon, LulzBot TAZ 6 Hexagon, LulzBot Hexagon, LulzBot Budaschnozzle, LulzBot TAZ Dual Extruder, LulzBot TAZ FlexyDually
Objects 3D printed with Magnetic Iron PLA filament can be post-processed to accelerate the iron oxidation process. Printed items may be submerged for 2-3 days for an aged and rusted appearance, or rusted more quickly by applying a special solution made with vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and salt. See the Links section for directions on how to make this solution.
Highlight details by polishing raised surfaces on the 3D printed object. Suggested uses for Magnetic Iron PLA range from sculptures and busts to architectural details and models.
