  • Features

    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.
