Proto-pasta FEP11701 Rustable Magnetic Iron Spool , PLA 1.75 mm, 125g , Gray

P>proto-pasta magnetic iron PLA responds to magnets and behaves similarly to Pure iron, even to the point of rusting in the right environment! magnets “stick” to this Material like they would to iron or steel; it is not a magnet itself and will not “stick” to other metal. Magnetic iron prints beautifully with a matte Gray finish similar to cast metal. The density is about 50 percent higher than standard PLA giving printed parts a bit more “heft” and a less plastic feel.

in filament form, fepla is slightly more brittle than standard PLA and requires extra care when handling. Processing is Comparable to standard PLA. No heated bed required. Process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or bowden Type machines. We frequently print using direct-drive systems with 0.4mm nozzles, though suggest 0.6mm and 190-210c (standard PLA or a bit cooler) for the best experience. This filament is more abrasive than standard PLA. Be prepared to replace your nozzle and do 1st layer adjustment. Try a wear resistant and/or larger diameter nozzle for increased service intervals.

    Great stuff! I got some really neat prints from … I was extremely impressed with how easily this printed… and with no “dialing in” of special settings other than what you’d use for standard PLA filament. It printed beautifully. The claims are all true. It is metallic and it will rust quickly if accelerated (which is exactly what I wanted).As another user has said, it is stiff and abrasive. It’s difficult to spool and the larger loose coil in which it was delivered doesn’t fit well around smaller spools without a lot…

    Its always great when an item arrive fast, the filament sample was also very durable, considering it was shoved to the mailbox but did not break.Printed a calibration cube at 210/50 degrees and around 30 mm/s speed, layers stick well to each other and to the bed even without glue.Only downside is that it does not have a spool so I needed to clear one and due to not fitting it well I was worried about printing at higher speed.Saving money to buy the bigger spool of this…
