PRODUCT ALERT (2)

Compatibility Alert:

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.

Prolonged use:

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

Features

Stainless Steel PLA is 93% more dense than common 3D printing PLA filament, so 3D printed objects will have a surprising weight to them. You can also make your printed objects look like cast metal through polishing. Post-print processing with successively finer grits of sandpaper and finishing with a cloth wheel minimizes any visible layers while showing off the shiny, metallic finish. Stainless Steel PLA works well for models and figurines, costumes, jewelry, and props.
