Metal Composites

Metal composite filaments like Copper or Brass allow you to 3D print decorations with a genuine metallic look and feel! All it takes is a little polishing and it’s as easy as printing with PLA! Metal composites will often require a hardened nozzle to prevent wear.

Get Glowing

Glow in the Dark filaments are easy to print with and would look absolutely fantastic hanging from the Christmas tree. Glow in the dark filaments are available in a variety of filaments – often PLA, PETG or ABS.

Wood

You’ve seen these before, wood Filaments have been around for a while but they’ve improved greatly and are now as easy as printing with standard PLA, although they’ll often require a hardened nozzle. Wood filaments produce beautiful looking, textured products that would make ideal Christmas decorations.
