Get ahead of the game with Colorfabb‘s latest contribution to metal infill 3D printer filaments, BrassFill. If you are tired of making objects in ABS filaments or PLA filaments and want a shiny metal finish why not try 3d printing in metal. BrassFill is slightly softer than ColorFabb’s BronzeFill or CopperFill speciality filaments and when post-processed BrassFill gives an amazing golden shine.

This is new so your probably not going to find it anywhere else.

BrassFill filament is sold in 1.75mm or 2.85mm diameter on a 750g spool.

When it first comes off the 3D printer your model will have that laser sintered matte finish.If you want something shinier just sand and polish to give it a fantastic bronze finish. Its ideal for making jewellery and because of the brass particles, it even has that heavier, metal, feel.

For best results you will need to increase the flow rate by 4-8% although this will depend on your machine. For the best shiny finish start sanding with 120-180 grit sand paper then work your way up through the grades to 600 and finish off with a soft cloth and copper polish. The filament sands easily so be careful that you do not over-sand.

This filament is experimental according to ColorFabb, they are …”still working on the formulation to get the best possible performance”. The best 3D printers for BrassFill are those with direct drive extruders, like the Makerbot replicator 2 or the Prusa i3. Printers with Bowden tube set-ups don’t tend to produce the best results with this filament currently. The filament is softer than their other metal infill printer filaments and so you need to be careful when applying pressure to the filament and also to try not to over stress the filament with your retraction settings.

We would be very interested to see any results and hear of your experiences with this filament so please make an account before you buy so that you can leave comments. Send us your photos and we will add them to the product listing (if appropriate).

Shipping costs of returned items are paid by the customer

A full refund will be issued for unopened items that are returned in their original packaging that are in a “as new” re-saleable condition minus additional costs that are incurred by iDig3Dprinting like custom duties or charges (doesn’t generally happen very often).

We are afraid we cannot issue refunds for products that have been defaced, altered, used, or damaged in any way. All requests for refunds are subject to inspection by iDig3DPrinting of the returned item. We are not a charity or a lending library.

Refunds and returns for faulty items works a bit differently. Faulty goods can be accepted for return upto 60 days from receipt of the goods. After this time you will need to contact the Manufacturer. A Replacement will be issued for faulty goods once they have passed inspection and been found by iDig3Dprinting to be faulty.
