I got myself a roll of Bambu PLA Iridium Gold Metallic and I am really liking the look!
I personally find that it looks a lot better than Silk PLA, because the latter looks too much like “shiny plastic” but this Bambu roll has more of a matt & metallic sheen to it.
I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for 3rd party filaments that also have this metallic sheen? I am not looking for PLA with metal particles and not Silk PLA? Bambu filaments are not always in stock and these metal stuff ain’t that cheap when not on sale so I was hoping to have some alternative options.
For you reference I included a picture that shows off the Bambu “Iridium Gold Metal” (Conan) vs. Voxel Lab “Gun Metal” Silk PLA (Hairy Lion).
Virtual foundry is nice. Here’s a 90.2% copper test print done on a P1S. Making a upgrade kit to allow the use of printing with metal fillaments. Gotta tweak the settings but first print of the new start g code and spool holder.
Hatchbox Metallic is pretty similar, I found. I was using the Bronze in that line before picking up Bambu’s Iridium Gold. It certainly reminded me of one another, although the Iridium gold is a bit more uh, well gold. Iridium gold on top, hatchbox bronze on bottom. They both have that pleasing metal like feel!
