Description

FilaPrint Metal Copper PLA because you know you deserve it!

This FilaPrint Metal PLA is an 80% Copper filled filament which is easy to print, sand & polish, you can create the most beautiful objects with real METAL characteristics, such as a 3 x higher weight than PLA, a METAL feel & touch and thermo-conductivity. Due to the high percentage of fillers FilaPrint Metal Copper PLA has virtually no shrinkage, plus a special lubricant increases the flow and prevents FilaPrint Copper to adhere to the nozzle. Finally all above positives combined with the correct hardness results in a filament that can be printed on almost every type of FDM 3d printer available on the market with retraction enabled on nozzles 0.35 mm.

Features:

  • Approx. 80% Copper content
  • PLA-based, 3 times heavier
  • Metal feel & cold touch
  • Excellent printability on both direct & Bowden style 3D printers
  • Processing additive added for easy & reliable printing
  • Quick & easy polishing and other post-processing
  • Possibility to print with retraction
  • Works on nozzles 0.35 mm

Additional Info:

FilaPrint Metal Copper PLA can be printed without a heated bed, but if you do have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 35-60C. Storage: Cool and dry (15-25C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly. FilaPrint Metal Copper PLA can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.

* Please consider the use of a hardened steel nozzle when printing with this filament as the Copper powder filler makes the filament abrasive and will result in fast wear of regular brass nozzles.
* Please have a look at the printing, post-processing & other PDF document below for further tips & tricks.

Storage: Cool and dry (15-25C) and away from UV light, this will enhance the shelf life significantly.

PLA

Overview

PLA is easy to print, at low cost. Non-toxic and Eco friendly. A perfect starting point for people new to 3D printing.

PLA is created from all-natural renewable resources, and under the correct conditions, is fully biodegradable. This material is typically used for prototypes or decorative prints; Due to the low temperatures and ease of use, features tend to print sharper and more detailed. Its non-toxic nature means that it can be printed for food and medical applications if done so from a sterile and sanitized environment. 
However, PLA prints are prone to snapping and breaking under pressure, and become damaged and discolored from high temperatures and prolonged exposure to sunlight or water. 

Used for: Design prototypes, Plastic Cups, Medical Implants, Food containers.
