ColorFabb's CopperFill allows you to create 3D prints that are infused with actual copper metal. Finished prints will have a reddish color, which comes from the copper itself. CopperFill is a perfect addition to filament collections of enthusiasts and professionals that want to expand beyond PLA and ABS.
NOTE: Experimental Filament
ColorFabb has classified CopperFill as experimental. Because of its unique properties, it works best with 3D printers that have all-metal hotends. 3D printers with teflon couplers, like the Ultimaker, will require a bit of tweaking to ensure they do not clog. Thus, while it can be made to work without an all-metal hot end, we recommend novices avoid using it.
3D Printing Temperature: 190C - 210C
3D Print Speed: 50 mm/s
Bed Temperature: 50-60C
ColorFabb recommends polishing CopperFill prints with steel wool. Additionally, apply black spray paint, then immediately wipe off, in order to darken those hard-to-reach nooks and crevasses. Finally, CopperFill 3D prints can be polished with actual copper polish.
Insanely Exact Diameter Tolerance
The colorFabb team is obsessive about the quality of their filament. During production, they use advanced systems to monitor the diameter of their filament as many as 1000 times per second. They're willing to guarantee 0.05mm +/- on both 2.85mm and 1.75mm colorFabb 3D printing filaments. You can rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material desired.
Each spool of colorFabb 3D printing filament comes sealed airtight in a double barrier foil, which protects it from the elements as it makes its trip to your 3D printer.
Know Thy Materials
colorFabb invests heavily in R&D to make the best possible filaments. Learn more about the exceptional properties of colorFabb materials.
Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
