With ColorFabb's SteelFill and a bit of post-processing, you can produce 3D prints with a stunning metallic finish. SteelFill is a Dutch-made filament infused with actual steel particles. Bring your 3D printing capabilities to the next level with SteelFill.
The high steel content of the SteelFill material makes this filament quite abrasive to brass nozzles. It's not as bad as the carbon fiber, XT-CF20 material, but can effect the print quality after printing 1.5 kg. Therefore it's recommended to print with abrasive resistant nozzles.
If you have an Ultimaker 2+ or Ultimaker 2 Extended+ printer, please check out our 3D Solex Everlast Nozzles. If you have an Ultimaker 3 or Ultimaker 3 Extended, please consider the Ultimaker CC Print Core or a 3D Solex HardCore upgrade kit along with a 3D Solex HardCore Everlast Nozzle.
3D Printing Temperature: 190-210C
3D Print Speed: 40-80 mm/s
Heated Bed: 50-60C
ColorFabb recommends polishing SteelFill in a manner similar to BronzeFill, by applying sandpaper. Start with a coarse sandpaper and progress to higher grit count. Polish with steel wool to achieve a nice metallic finish.
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.

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...
