Have you tried printing with metal?

Did yColorFabb bronzefillou know you don’t have to stick to plastic prints?

We have been trying out using ColorFabb‘s Bronzefill fillament.

Bronzefill is a composite filament; a mix of PLA/PHA and bronze particles. It can be a bit fiddly to use, but can produce good results. We hope to have pictures soon!

Here are some photos of Derek Bosch’s brilliant Helical Burr puzzle, printed by a THREEDY 3D Printer using Bronzefill and Brassfill. It weights a ton!! (or more accurately, approx. 800g – it is about 100 mm high)

The main problems in using metal-containing filaments tend to be due to their heat retaining properties; apply a large fan to keep your print cool!

Use one of THREEDY’s big nozzles for best results
