Proto-Pasta Magnetic Iron PLA 3D Printer Filament - 2.85mm, 500g Reel

This iron-bearing premium 3D printing filament is attractive to magnetic fields. The finely ground iron particles also add a distinctive heft to 3D printed objects. On average they will weigh 50% more than a comparable item printed in PLA.

Works with: LulzBot Mini 2, LulzBot Mini 1, LulzBot TAZ 6, LulzBot TAZ 5, LulzBot TAZ 1-4, LulzBot TAZ/Mini Aerostruder, LulzBot TAZ Dual Extruder, LulzBot TAZ FlexyDually, LulzBot Hexagon, LulzBot TAZ 6 Hexagon, LulzBot TAZ 5 Hexagon, LulzBot Budaschnozzle, and many other 3D printers that support 2.85mm/3.00mm filament materials.


Objects 3D printed with Magnetic Iron PLA filament can be post-processed to accelerate the iron oxidation process. Printed items may be submerged for 2-3 days for an aged and rusted appearance.

Highlight details by polishing raised surfaces on the 3D printed object. Suggested uses for Magnetic Iron PLA range from sculptures and busts to architectural details and models.
