High Carbon Iron Filamet™


High Carbon Iron Filamet™ is available as 1.75mm and 2.85mm filament and as pellets.

Specs: This filament comes in 0.5kg and 1kg spools and 1kg bags of pellets. It contains 75.0% - 80.0% metal and has a density of 2.75g/cc.

High Compatibility: This Filamet™ enables any open-architecture Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printer to produce metal objects. Even works in 3D printing pens!

Easy to Print: All you need is an open architecture 3D printer, a 0.8mm hardened steel nozzle, and a model to print. Print like regular PLA. Place your spool so that the filament coming off is going straight into the extruder. The flow rate in your slicer may need to be adjusted up to 135%. Little to no warping occurs during printing.

Advanced Properties: Filamet™ is less hygroscopic than regular PLA. Filament dryers have adverse affects on Filamet™. Spools should not be dried.

Fully Sinterable Metal Filament: Once fired in a sintering furnace, the result is 100% metal. Sintering trials have not been conducted for this product. To partner on development, contact us.

Special Qualities: Ferromagnetic, will oxidize.

Used For: Partner Innovators have used this filament for magnetics, electromagnetic cores, Damascus steel fabrication, and research.

Eliminate tooling and machining costs for short run manufacturing, prototyping, and one-off metal part needs.

Note: All sales final except in cases of defective product.

Get the Quality Filament You Need

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...
