Description

Start printing with real steel metal! This filament contains at least 20% fine steel powder by volume. With post processing sanding and polishing, you can make printed objects look and feel like metal.

Excellent diameter tolerance
ColorFabb uses sophisticated and highly precise laser measuring systems to check the diameter of the filament in real time during the actual production process. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and this helps guarantee that each spool of filament is produced within tolerance. We can guarantee 0.05mm +/- for our 1.75mm diameter filament, which means you can be rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material called for.

Climate Controlled Warehouse
STACKER warehouses its filaments in a climate controlled room to protect them heat and moisture which can degrade the life and performance of some filaments.

In-house testing
ColorFabb filaments have been rigorously tested at both STACKER and colorFabb facilities on Stacker 3D printers, and this ensures the best results possible. The colorFabb test lab features a wide range of popular 3D printers, including several STACKER 3D printers. They are continuously testing on 3D printers to ensure the filament is performing in real world situations. If you’re not sure how to print with our materials on your 3D printer, please contact us at support@colorfabb.com or info@stacker3d.com.

Material science
ColorFabb was founded as a brand of Helian Polymers, a sister company of Peter Holland which have been active in the master batch and additives for the plastics processing industry. Both companies eat sleep and dream about 3D printing, and our passion drives us to create the best user experience possible.

TIP! Depending on your set-up, 3D printer and slice software, you might see that SteelFill 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 SteelFill doesn’t show a die swell you might need to increase flow rate a bit of 4-8%.

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 SteelFill is easy to sand down, careful you won’t lose 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.

3D printers have lots of different types of hot-end which makes it extremely difficult to give universal temperature advice. We feel our temperature advice holds for most 3D printers, but should be considered as a starting point for you to find the temperatures that work in you setup. Don’t be afraid to go either higher or lower than our advised temperatures if you feel your set-up needs this. Please refer back to your printer’s operating manual for safety and temperature specifics.
