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 a beautiful Clear & Transparent finish, which actually produces a very unique and novel effect when compared to many of the more standardised PLA Filaments on the market. And while it may not be the best option for vibrant and highly stylised prints, the transparency, when combined with glitter particles, is excellent for 3D Printing parts like smart phone covers, subtle accent pieces and enclosures that you want to stylise rather than just being plain transparent.
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.
