Serious fleck n fun! Introducing Highfive Blue, Metallic HTPLA v3 created in collaboration with 3D Printing Nerd, Joel Telling!

Fellow 3D Printing Nerds, we are fans of Joel Telling just like you! Wed all love to capture a bit his energy, right? Rather than bottle it, seems more appropriate in filament form, dont you agree? We left out the caffeine for safety sake, but the metallic finish is indeed energetic, and its Joels favorite color, blue. Did I mention all that goodness is in our most excellent HTPLA v3 for maximum 3D Printing awesomeness? Yes, this material is awesome. Is it really awesome? Its awesome. Awesome.

Here is why HTPLA v3 is so special: Printing: HTPLA like PLA at can print at 200C or less, though exceptional mechanical results were achieved printing up to 250C or more for nearly twice the layer strength compared to 230C in our tests. Adjust layer fan and build rate for surface quality. Though a heated bed is not required, larger, more solid parts can benefit from bed temps up to 70C. Standard build surface preparation like blue tape or glue stick work best along with slow (10-20 mm/s) and hot (220C+) 1st layer with enough gap not to restrict material extrusion.

Heat treating: PLA and HTPLA as printed, though both adequate performers in an office environment, have poor temperature stability, loosing significant stiffness at temperatures not much above 50C. Different than standard PLA, HTPLA is designed to survive heat treating for higher temperature stability in a no/minimal load condition to near melting. Thats an astonishing 3x+ improvement in thermal stability compared to standard PLA after a quick bake in the oven after printing. In as little as 5-10 minutes for small, thin parts and as much a few hours for massive parts, HTPLA v3 parts crystallize in an oven at 110C +/- 10C (200-250F) to become more stiff. Depending on part geometry, setup, and technique, parts can deform and shrink. Best results are with flat and/or supported parts with 100% infill. In this instance we experienced x/y shrinkage of only 0.5% and negligible z change. Be sure to avoid hot spots (non-radiating surfaces and no glowing coils) in the oven used for baking and experiment before baking a prized part. Heat treating is an art, but the resulting improved thermal performance, if needed, is well-worth experimenting to learn more. Youll be blown away by just how improved the thermal stability of your HTPLA v3 parts will be!

Glitter Flake HTPLA - Winter Blue Glitter - 1.75mm - 500g Spool

Translucent blue thats sparkly too for frosty winter fun!

Introducing a special, seasonal release: Winter Blue Glitter Flake. Born out of Project Winterfill, the idea was to capture the spirit of the approaching season in filament form. Created from our highest quality, translucent HTPLA v2, we carefully introduce just the right amount of blue pigment and sparkle for a cool, wintry blue. A very dynamic and deep color, the blue concentration creates a light blue color that can extend both towards a silvery green and a deep dark purple depending on form and light.
The additional glitter bits sometimes disappear and in other light bring a frosty finish which make the blue look almost snow-covered. Having been developed in October, we had fun printing some wrinkly pumpkins to experience to experience the rich beauty of this dynamic color. Please enjoy creating festive holiday prints and spread good cheer with Proto-pastas Winter Blue!
