1. The filament is very brittle and while they clearly state this in the description it's still annoying. My 3d printer always puts a slight amount of tension on the filament even when you are loading the filament so despite me being cautious I still had the filament break one time, not a big deal if it's removed but if it were to break and you pushed the broken filament into your machine I would imagine it could do some damage.
2. I'm not a fan of the cardboard spool, sure it's eco friendly but it can be damaged in shipping. It also doesn't roll as smoothly on the stand while it's being fed into the machine as a plastic spool does, not a big deal but I feel like if I'm paying a premium price I want something to preform better not worse.
3. The filament lingers around after you change filament colors, while all filaments do this to some extent none of them have been as bad as this filament. I suppose you could just steady run the extruder for a few minutes after you load a different filament but then you're wasting filament which seems kind of pointless.
4. The biggest negative for me of them all is I simply couldn't get a proper print out of this filament. Maybe it was something I did wrong or maybe it was just my cheap 3d printer but every other PLA I have tried has worked fine and I just couldn't get this to print properly. I'll update my review if I am able to get a decent print out of this but that still doesn't change the fact that it's preforms vastly different than a standard PLA.
The prints do weight more than a regular PLA filament, I'm not really sure why you would want or need this especially considering the extra weight doesn't add any strength to the print but if you're looking for that this filament has it.
Despite not being able to get a complete print out of this filament the part I did get looked pretty cool, it has almost like a stone/concrete look to it and if you put some peroxide and salt on it you do get the cool rust affect that everyone likes.
So after all those negatives and aggravation the only really benefit you get from this filament is it looks kind of cool, even with that though it's not that cool looking when you compare it to something like a wood filament. When you use a wood filament and stain your print you can get a 3d print that looks exactly like wood, however with this no matter what you do it still looks like something printed out on a 3d printer. Overall I'm not really happy with this filament even if this printed out fine and I had no problems with it I still don't think I would be impressed by it. It's just not unique or good looking enough to justify the $40 and the difficulty of use was just the icing on the disappointment cake.
Even with the bad experience I will give another one of proto-pasta's filaments a try in the future but I'll be looking for one that is easier to use.
In my experience, printing with it may be anywhere from easy to impossible depending on various factors. For me, PLA heat creep has been an issue with all Proto-Pasta's high-temp PLA filaments, but the iron-blend is the worst. I have a print toolhead that is actually incapable of printing this filament past a few layers, and another that will happily print with it flawlessly using default settings. I got a third toolhead working by lowing retraction settings to nearly nothing, and by counter-intuitively INCREASING the hot end extrusion temp!
Once printed, it looks very good. It bridges well, does not string much, hides layer lines a bit, and has a nice matte texture.
Strong magnets can stick to it provided you have thick walls and/or dense infill plus a reasonably strong magnet. I'm not sure what the point of this would be.
Its weight and ability to rust seems to be its best qualities. Using nothing but a solution of bleach sprayed onto the printed part and leaving it for a few days can produce a very nice rust effect.
Many tutorials will tell you you can enhance the qualities of parts printed with iron PLA by sanding and wire-brushing them. However, sanding does change the lightness and texture so if you do this, you're signing up to evenly and thoroughly sand every nook and crevice of the part. Since it's tough to get even sanding and brushing all over a part in some cases, I recommend trying to rust a part without sanding it to see if you like the effect. I've attached a rocket that I printed in Proto-Pasta iron PLA and did minimal post-processing and no sanding on as an example.
In retrospect, it seems silly to expect bronze particles go through a 3D printer. If I could give this Proto-Pasta Bronze filament negative ten stars, I would, because of the destruction it can cause. Hopefully, a soak in acetone will help loosen up some of the gunk stuck in the nozzle.
10/4 - FYI - Acetone seems to have little or no effect on the clog. I am using picks and small drill bits to try and remove as much as possible.
10/5 - More FYI - So I reamed out the back-end of my nozzle and did a cold pull (warm pull??) and it came out clean. So the bad stuff in the Proto-Pasta Bronze filament did not get into 0.4mm orifice; it only clogged up the back of the nozzle. So five stars for the Olsson Ruby Nozzle, negative infinity stars for the Proto-Pasta Bronze filament.
