Our tests for this filament has us quite impressed. It is very easy to print using the standard PLA presets on your Ultimaker but slowing down the print speed a touch. The resulting finish is a nice matte dark copper finish with good layer adhesion. The colour is darker than you would expect for “copper” but it is a nice tone. The high copper composite percentage gives your prints a true metal feel and not just a metal sheen as compared to some other filaments. Your prints can be polished in post-processing for a smoother metal looking sheen.
Use the standard PLA profile on your Ultimaker and set print speed slightly slower to 35mm/s in Cura.
To prevent pre-mature wear on your brass nozzle, consider using a hardened steel nozzle for your printer.
