More info

This incredible high filling with brass powders enables every FDM 3D printer user to 3D print brass objects which are almost indistinguishable from genuine brass casted objects. MetalFil - Brass is easy to print and can be printed on full metal, PEEK, and PFTE hotends and can perfectly be printed with ≥ 0.4mm nozzles with retraction settings enabled on both direct drive extruders, as well as on Bowden style extruders, which is a truly unique feature for a metal-filled filament. MetalFil Brass printed objects are extremely easy to polish.


Unique features

  • 70% filled with brass powder
    • Real brass look and “cold” brass metal feel
    • o More than twice as heavy compared to PLA (density of 2.78 g/cc)
  • Easy to post-process
    • MetalFil Brass can be brushed, sanded, polished, waxed and coated
  • Very easy to print on both direct drive & Bowden style extruders
    • Warp-free printing and no deformation after cooling
    • Improved flowing behavior and inter-layer adhesion
    • Good first layer adhesion to several (un)heated print surfaces


General printing guidelines *

Nozzle size: ≥ 0.4mm Layer height: ≥ 0.1mm Flow rate: ± 104%
Print temp: ± 215 - 235° C * Print Speed: Medium Retraction: Yes ± 5mm
Heat bed: ± 0 - 60° C Fan Speed: 50 - 100% Experience level: Beginner
*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There is a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends, and printer offset that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.
*) If blobs/lumps form around the nozzle then your print temperature is too high.


Post-processing MetalFil - Brass


Brushing and/or sand grinding


Once printed MetalFil - Brass objects can very easily be brushed with a brass brush or sanded with fine grid sandpaper. By brushing and/or sand grinding your printed object you will brush/shine up the high concentration of brass powders


Build-in white polish feature


After being brushed and/or sanded MetalFil - Brass will reveal its white polish feature. A very thin white layer/haze on your object will now allow you to easily polish your 3D print into a beautiful brass object.


Professional polishing with a rotary tumbler


Post-processing a MetalFil - Brass 3D printed object with a rotary tumbler will make your FDM 3D printed object indistinguishable from genuine brass casted objects.


Waxing and coating


After every above mentioned post-processing measure, you can always wax or coat your printed object to get an incredible shine effect. Waxing can be done with products such as beeswax and for coating one can think about products such as XTC-3D.


Abrasiveness


Please be aware that MetalFil filaments contain a very high concentration of metal powders, which have an abrasive nature. In general, these metal powders will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles, much faster than unfilled filaments. We recommend using nozzles from stainless steel or other hardened alloys.

Nozzle cleaning


When printing with filled/composite filaments it is recommended to clean your nozzle immediately after printing by feeding 15-20cm PLA filament through your nozzle. This will make sure that any potential fillers are flown out of your nozzle. It is even better to use glow in the dark PLA as the extremely hard phosphorous particles are much more likely to scrape out residual waste from your nozzle.
