    More Details

    FilaPrint Metal Bronze PLA because you know you deserve it!


    The FilaPrint Metal PLA is an 80% bronze 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 Bronze PLA has virtually no shrinkage, plus a special lubricant increases the flow and prevents FilaPrint Bronze 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.


    • Approx. 80% bronze 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 Bronze PLA can be printed without a heated bed, but if you do have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 35-60˚C. Storage: Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly. FilaPrint Metal Bronze 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 bronze 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 (15-25˚C) and away from UV light, this will enhance the shelf life significantly.
