Sometimes here at MatterHackers we get a little bored printing with plastics. Thanks to ColorFabb's bronzeFill, we can shake things up a bit by printing with actual bronze! At first, the bronzeFill appears to be laser sintered with a matte finish - fear not, for a little sanding and polishing allows the infused bronze particles to sparkle unlike any filament that you have seen before!
Another great characteristic of bronzeFill is its weight - it's about three times heavier than standard PLA, which really adds to the authenticity of your prints. This is ideal if you are printing items like jewelry or other artistic pieces.
We reccomend using our E3D All-Metal HotEnds to print bronzeFill.
Before and After Polishing
During production, ColorFabb bronzeFill uses laser measurment systems to confirm that the diameter of the filament is consistant - this guarantees that your printer is extruding the exact amount of filament that is should be.
Is that an ancient artifact, or did you just print that?
