The most sparkly pink metallic PLA you've ever seen! Happy Valentine's!!!

Cupid’s Crush HTPLA has a beautiful pink metallic finish without any abrasive or metallic fillers!

Print with the ease of standard PLA filaments using standard 3D printing hardware and temperatures, but make fun, mesmerizing pink prints that stand out with a convincing metallic finish. Celebrate good times by printing pink metallic PLA toys, treasures, and keepsakes. If you want to make a print more fun, just add some metallic pop! The pink metallic finish comes from glitter flakes that are relatively small but have some orientation effects, giving top/bottom surfaces more shine than sidewall, so have some fun playing with orientation to see how the result changes!

Heat Treating

Like our other HTPLAs, Cupid's Crush Metallic Pink HTPLA can be "Heat Treated" to increase crystallinity for "Higher Temperature" resistance compared to amorphous PLA, ABS, and co-polyesters like PETG! Glitter Flake HTPLA prints translucent, but turns opaque when heat treated (or crystallized). With a more crystalline structure, heat treated Metallic Pink HTPLA parts can hold form to near melting, though temperatures where the material is practically useful vary greatly depending on geometry and load conditions!

For this improved performance, your prints should be baked in an oven until you see a change from translucent pink to opaque pink with reduced gloss. This visual change indicates the improved performance! We've seen the change take place in 5-10 minutes on thin walled parts but can take an hour or more. We've had good luck in a quality, at home convection oven at 110C (225F). Parts will get very "floppy" before becoming more firm, so please leave supports on your parts or support them and bake them on a flat, non-radiating surface (like glass, ceramic, or composite).

Printing

In our experience, good results were achieved using standard PLA parameters ranging from 195-225C nozzle with standard build surface preparation (blue tape, glue stick, or BuildTak). No heated bed required but up to 60C is okay. Beware, if the bed temperature is too high, your part base could actually heat treat while printing, increasing warping and decreasing adhesion. Some shrinkage will occur in the heat treating process, so dimension critical parts may need to be scaled appropriately (as much as 2.5% in our experience).

  • No abrasive fillers so expect normal wear with standard nozzles.
  • Available in 1.75 & 2.85 (3) mm diameter on a 500g diameter recyclable cardboard spool
  • Usable on most PLA-compatible printers, such as Lulzbot, Makerbot, FlashForge, Dremel, Ultimaker, Printrbot, and more!

Cupid's crush

The color and glitteryness of this filament is amazing. What's even more amazing though, is that it is the only filament I have ever bought (this is my first purchase from Protopasta) that actually had the tolerance advertised and my average diameter measured came out to 1.75mm. it made my prints come out great without even really trying.

Those weird female creatures love it.

...Printed a tablet stand out of silver material for the wife, she loved it. Printed one out of CCMP HTPLA as a test prior to running a production order -- wife ditched the silver tablet stand and ran off with this one instead. Material prints very well, no issues.
