Stainless Steel PLA by Proto-pasta brings metal 3D printing home by combining the familiarity of PLA with finely ground stainless steel powder.
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
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.
