Features Specs Support

Try these techniques separately or combine! Change the order or try something new. If you discover a new technique, make something beautiful, or discover something unexpected, share it! When youve got that perfect, WOW finish, consider preserving it with a clear coat or brush applicable water-based, food-safe, and dishwasher safe coating like Modge Podge. Practice your finishing a on a test piece like Protognome (download here).

Now the only question is, What will you make?

Heat treating beforehand to firm up HTPLA helps parts hold shape up to near melting (175C). Protect your investment in warm environments or push limits of application by exploring coppers thermal conductivity. There is not enough copper to be electrically conductive, sintered, or plated, but there is a noticeable difference in weight and heat transfer.

Some application ideas include:

In filament form, SSPLA is slightly more brittle than standard PLA, and requires extra care when handling.
Processing is comparable to standard PLA (extrudes at 190-240C). No heated bed required. Due to increased brittleness, process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or bowden type machines.

PLA Blend Filament - Magnetic Iron - 1.75mm - 500g Spool
This amazing filament is a blend of PLA and carbon Fibre by ProtoPasta in the USA.
Proto-pasta Magnetic Iron PLA - as its name implies - responds to magnets and behaves similarly to pure iron, even to the point of rusting! Magnetism opens up a new world of practical applications and fun creations.
It extrudes at 190-200 degrees c on a cold bed. We have tested on buildtak wit glue stick and it sticks well. Prints best at thicker resolutions like 300 microns, but will look like 100 micron. Our tests showed no spider webbing at all, and models held water after printing. It can lift in unsupported areas, but quickly recovers on the next layer. Sands nicely with very course sandpaper. Can get rust effect by submerging in with salty water for 2-3 hours. In our tests it was not too abrasive on nozzle, but recommend a wear resistant nozzle.
