As some of the world leading manufacturers of 3D Filament, we aren’t as surprised anymore when eSUN 3D introduce new and unique polymers. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s not exciting when they do, and we are excited to introduce their recent range of eSUN eTwinkle PLA Filament. This filament utilises the base polymer of PLA, but features some ultrafine glitter particles as the additive, and while this may seem quite kitschy at first, when viewing full prints in this filament, it ends up having surprisingly awesome aesthetics – especially for 3D Printing fun prints like desktop toys and decorative pieces.
In addition to the awesome glitter effect of eSUN eTwinkle, these spools offer an sleek Black finish that, while maintaining a good level of subtlety, meaning that they are awesome if you want your prints to blend well while still offering a stylised accent. As such, this Black eTwinkle Filament is ideal for printing accent-type prints, with a particularly good aesthetic for electronics enclosures and minimalistic styles like Voronoi. However, if you’re looking for a twinkling filament that will truly stand out in almost any environment, be sure to take a look at the Red and Orange twinkle filaments, which scream personality and demand attention regardless of the use case or environment.
And finally, as an added benefit of eSUN Twinkling PLA, the shiny particles within the filament help to hide layer lines and small faults very well, and instead of those tiny faults being the centre of attention, onlookers can’t help but focus their gaze on the mesmerising glittery effect.
Please Note: While this filament will not damage your nozzle, it's recommended to use a nozzle size 0.4mm or larger, so as to accommodate the particle additives within this filament and prevent unnecessary clogs.
