Filament Friday: “Silk Like” Filament Gives Glossy Prints via MAKE: Blog

Looking for a cool new look for your 3-D prints? Check out these glossy finish filaments. Part of “Filament Friday” where Make highlights a new filament type each week. — Douglas
So far over the corse of Filament Fridays, we’ve talked about filaments with better sustainability, different textures, and even flexibility. This week’s selection is all about looks. Silk Like from Beaver3D produces prints with such a high luster it will surely turn the heads of anyone you show them to.

Beaver3D was a company I was unaware of until I stopped by the Maker Box booth recently at the Midwest RepRap Fest (MRRF). Maker Box is a great way to get started in dabbling with cool alternative filaments. Each month, Maker Box will send you a box with 4 filament samples in your desired filament size from different great manufacturers. Looking around some of the samples from past boxes in their booth, the Silk Like instantly caught my eye and I purchased a sample from them to try out.
