Re: Introducing a new filament supplier

That does look good - Bravo!! How did you finish the print? The model is sanded and then metal polish was used. It does come out very well. The weight of Copperfill also adds a nice feel to the finished article. We have been looking for a good model of this sort to test out metal impregnated filame...
