colorFabb special filaments

Innovation never stops at colorFabb. Our ever expanding range of special filaments have been industry leading for years. Some of them are for aesthetic purposes, others are pure functionality or for specific niche applications. Materials like woodFill, bronzeFill, XT-CF20, LW-PLA, varioShore TPU and DPA-100 support filament were developed in-house and have been successes ever since. By listening to our customers’ needs and forging strategic partnerships with material OEMs we are able to innovate continuously and bring FDM/FFF 3D printing to the next level.

Please note that most materials have specific printing instructions. Consult the individual article pages for more information.

TIP! Depending on your set-up, 3d printer and slice software, you might see that bronzeFill needs a bit more flow compared to your normal PLA settings. Most plastics will show die swell when coming out of the nozzle tip, this is counteracted with specific slicer settings. Since bronzeFill doesn’t show a die swell such as PLA you might need to increase flow rate a bit, 4-8% was perfect for our UM2. UM original did not need any adjustments.

TIP! Sanding and polishing your parts will make the bronze particles shine. Start sanding with grit 120-180 and make sure all the printed lines vanish. You’ll notice that because bronzeFill is easy to sand down, careful you won’t loose too much detail. Then start working your way up by following with grit 240-320 and finishing off with grit 600 - or higher. Finally we used a clean soft cloth and some copper polish to really get all of the shine out of the bronze particles.

BRONZEFILL

The first of its kind: a filament with actual metal in it, as highly dosed as physically possible, for FDM/FFF 3D printing. With bronzeFill you have a 3D printing filament in your hands that astonishes. Not only the look and feel, which turns your print into art, but also the weight – which is about three to four times as heavy as regular PLA. Based on our PLA/PHA formulation bronzeFill has a matte, almost laser sintered finished. Only when you polish it, or use another way of post-processing, you make it truly shine and will turn your print into a piece that, according to a certain archeologist, belongs in a museum.
