Print metallic parts without any special hardware – this is how Fillamentum Extrafill PLA performs!
Coming to us from the Czech Republic, we’ve got the Fillamentum Extrafill PLA.
This one is the Rapunzel Silver metallic version, which is Jo Prusa’s and my personal favorite, but it is available in the full range of colors at a reasonable 35€ per kg. I’m sure the metallic effect contributed to the awesome-looking prints with barely visible layers, while in the technical tests it ends up at 16 out of 20 points, showing a high tendency of stringing and an average performance for bridges and overhangs, but a practically flawless 3DBenchy print.
Mechanically, it gave consistent results at a high level, ending up at a weighted strength rating of 51.5kg, while, as expected, temperature stability under boiling water is poor. Overall, the Fillamentum Extrafill PLA is a good PLA filament that is easy to print at 210°C and a 55°C heated PEI bed, showing no signs of warping, while only needing a slight bump in the retraction settings to give spectacular prints in the metallic color versions.
