8" diameter spool of 500g of ProtoPasta's stainless-steel-infused PLA. Contain powdered steel. Prints with normal PLA settings (195-220ºC). A heated bed is not required but can be used at 50ºC.
This is a dense material that prints as easily as standard PLA but results in heavy cast-metal-looking prints that can be brushed, sanded, or polished post-print to achieve amazing results. Perfect for jewelry, costumes, props, figurines, crafting, robots, and more!
