Aluminium composite filaments are a combination of PLA with aluminium metal powder. Environmentally friendly, with the look and feel of fabricated pure metal but the ability to be easily printed on most printers capable of printing with PLA.
This aluminium composite filament has less shrinkage, a lower molding temperature and great liquidity compared to other metral type filaments and will print without edge warping making it much easier to print with. When you're done printing, the object can be polished to a shiny metallic finish.
3D printing is a fun and exciting hobby with a wide range of uses from prototyping parts to making toys for the kids. Picking the right filament for your application is very important and with ESUN natural aluminium metal filament composite it will give you some great looking, unique 3D printed objects.

great filament with REAL aluminium content. prints good on nozzles larger than 0.5 diameter.
printed the gothic lantern with it after I got accostemed with the filament (first prints always clogged cause my temp was to high, first layer to flat (the metal exriched ones need at least a first layer of over 0.25mm), my extr multipl was to low (109 it became on my stock cr10),.. MIND YOU / CAUTION= this filament has a steep learning curve! SO not for beginners...
after some troubles I finetuned it and started printing the gothic lantern from thjingiverse, everybody disencourages me cause boy that model has millions of retractions.... it became a 34 hour print that went almost perfect.. just clogged at 97% ready on the bottom main part but that was no problem as that were the pegs to fix the roof area on, I just switched them with separate (printed) pegs and bore out the half way finished ones ;-) my wife loves the game of throines style lantern
ps VERY hard to sa,d this filament, I gavce up and left the largest part unsanded (the model is all corners and depressions and hard to reach, even at 0.2 layer height printed it wazs a job of days to complete one rib (of the 8...) so imagine.. altough it looks fantastic just like real aluminium when sanded till 2000 grid!
