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.
|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|
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
