5 Filaments to Take Your Creativity to the Next Level

Posted by Mark Hudson on

 

Creativity is at its peak when working on 3D printing projects. Isn’t it exciting to test the limits of your 3D printer? There is nothing more amazing than having a design idea on your mind and seeing it come to life thanks to your 3D printer. If you’re the type to create beautiful 3D-printed toys, jewellery, decorations, or models, here are 3D printer filaments that will take your designs from great to out-of-this-world amazing!


1. X3D Pro Silk PLA


X3D Pro Silk PLA is not just like any other PLA. Its silky and glossy effect is reminiscent of a metallic sheen but without the difficulty of printing with metal-filled filaments. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t require post-processing. You can get the silky finish fresh from the 3D printer.

2. X3D Pro Wood 


Did you know you can create wood sculptures from 3D printers? We’re not just talking about creating plastics painted like wood, but you can create prints that have a wooden look, feel, and weight to it that you can sand, cut, and paint for additional details. With the X3D Pro Wood, this is possible! Made from recycled wood and binding polymers, it has a PLA base which makes it eco-friendly and easy to print with. 


Tip: This week is the perfect time to buy this filament as there is $10 off per X3D Pro Wood roll.

3. Eryone Rainbow PLA (Classical, Steampunk, and Lagoon)


Usually printing with multiple colors does not provide a smooth transition in between the colours since you have to change filaments or switch extruders. With the Eryone Rainbow PLA filaments, your prints will get a gradient finish with the careful blending of different colours in a single roll. It also has three colour choices: the Classical Rainbow PLA featuring red, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue, and purple; Steampunk Rainbow PLA featuring a corroded brass (green) base colour transforming through to copper and gold; and Rainbow Lagoon PLA featuring silver, green, purple, red and yellow.

4. Glitter PLA


Glitter makes everything better. Instead of painting it on your prints, why not just print with glittery filaments? Our X3D Pro Twinkling PLA and Eryone Galaxy Glitter give off that sparkle without dealing with those sticky and messy glitters.

A favourite among creators, PLA is versatile and can be used for different projects, whether it’s for personal or business use.

Performance-wise, it has a low shrinkage level, strong stability, and good tensile strength, which is unlike regular PLAs from other brands.
