Proto-Pasta - 1.75mm Magnetic Iron Filament

Product ID: 2797


Pici up this filament today! It'd be Fusilli not to buy this filament! We can't tagliatelle you enough about this filament. Are these puns Spirali-ng out of control? 

Sorry! We had to get that out of our system. This Proto-Pasta Magnetic Iron Filament from ProtoPlant opens up a new world of fun, rustic looking 3-D printed creations. This filament behaves similarly to iron - even to the point of rusting - making it a great choice for costumes and props.

Since this filament behaves similarly to iron, it's actually "ferromagnetic" as opposed to magnetic.  This means that magnets will stick to items printed with this filament but 3D Printed items will not behave as magnets. And, of course, even though it has the word "Pasta" in the name, its not for eating.

This is 1.75mm filament and is made in the USA by Proto-Pasta. Check out the proto-pasta site here for more info and frequently asked questions about this filament!
