Colorfabb Steelfill

Recommended Posts

Maybe it snapped due a filament tangle. Is sad but it can happen. There's no way (on any filament maker) to avoid that filament can tangle at some point. Is a 1/20 stuff so is just really bad luck. I think some users for critical print take the filament amount that they will use and leave it unspooled, but that also can tangle. Other leave the spool on the floor on a lazy susan.

Anyone got any good settings on steelfill? I printed some parts, but they crumble like cream crackers when you apply a little pressure on them.


yes, I'm using S3D though.

flow = 105%

retraction = default (4,5mm & 25mm/s)

layer = 0,25mm

heated bed = 50 C°

print temp = 210 C°

cooling = 50%

print speed = 50 mm/s

travel speed = 200 mm/s

Those settings gave me this result :


I had a another awesome print with steelfill but it got broken during post processing :p

It's a pretty amazing filament but it's also pretty expensive to play around with. :)
