info on conductive filament?

Recommended Posts

hey so im looking to get some conductive filament, as i'd like to print part that light bulbs screw into, and have the little metal contacts be printed but i dont know anything really about electricity and conductivity but i noticed that filaments.ca sells a conductive PLA that has a 1000ohm resistance and protopasta has a conductive PLA with 30 ohms resistance. would i be able to put enough power through something printed in one of these to power a lightbulb? maybe an LED lamp?
