Gizmo Dorks metal copper fill filament is a new filament that permits unique prints with a metallic look and finish. Metal copper filament is a unique blend made by combining real copper powder with PLA filament, and the filament prints similar to normal PLA. The filament will also be printed on either heated or non heated build plates. It is suggested to print on blue painters tape, and there’s essentially no warping. If a heated build plate is used, then please set it to 60 C, and the print can have an increased adhesion to the platform. Metal copper fill may also be printed on regular glass, glass with glue stick, or kapton tape.
Please be wary of warmth creep. PLA already suffers from heat creep and because this filament has real copper powder mixed in, heat creep effects could also be accentuated.
Metal copper filled prints will also be post processed. Start with the usage of coarse steel wool to shine the outside. Keep in mind that that is only a polish and there isn’t that much pressure needed. Follow it up by applying a thin coat of black spray paint and straight away wiping it off with a cloth. This will likely leave the places which are tougher to achieve with a slight black tint giving it a stupendous contrast. Lastly, a copper polish may also be used to offer a brighter shine and give some patina.
