Adding stainless steel to 3D printing material PLA, eSteel indicates a fashion grey metal sense after polishing. This environmentally friendly filament can be used as easily as PLA, hard to break, easy to print, with little to no warping and cracking. However, you still need to replace your nozzle and do a 1st layer adjustment.

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.
