Proto-Pasta PLA Filament

Conductive PLA

Unleash your inner electrical engineer with this exciting new premium 3D printing filament. Since 3D printed objects have varying structures within them, the resistance across the 3D printed object varies as well! The resistance of the 3D printed object can be different when measured across the sides of the object than the resistance when measured from the top to the bottom.

Magnetic Iron PLA

This iron-bearing premium 3D printing filament is attractive to magnetic fields. The finely ground iron particles also add a distinctive heft to 3D printed objects. On average they will weigh 50% more than a comparable item printed in PLA.


Stainless Steel PLA

Stainless Steel PLA filament by Proto-pasta brings metal 3D printing home by combining the familiarity of PLA with finely ground stainless steel powder. Start your next project with this metal 3D printing filament.

Conductive PLA

Use Conductive PLA filament for low-voltage printed-in-place applications such as contacts, switches, and even internal wiring traces. This premium 3D printing filament can also interact with some touch sensors and even touch screens.

Magnetic Iron PLA

Objects 3D printed with Magnetic Iron PLA filament can be post-processed to accelerate the iron oxidation process. Printed items may be submerged for 2-3 days for an aged and rusted appearance, or rusted more quickly by applying a special solution made with vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and salt. See the Links section for directions on how to make this solution. Highlight details by polishing raised surfaces on the 3D printed object. Suggested uses for Magnetic Iron PLA range from sculptures and busts to architectural details and models.

Stainless Steel PLA

Stainless Steel PLA is 93% more dense than common 3D printing PLA filament, so 3D printed objects will have a surprising weight to them. You can also make your printed objects look like cast metal through polishing. Post-print processing with successively finer grits of sandpaper and finishing with a cloth wheel minimizes any visible layers while showing off the shiny, metallic finish. Stainless Steel PLA works well for models and figurines, costumes, jewelry, and props.
