Earlier this year we launched PLA Semi-Matte Black as an addition to our regular PLA colors we have been offering for years. Our semi-matte PLA filament eliminates the glossy appearance seen on most PLA 3D prints. The highlights on the surface will be less visible, resulting in an overall cleaner and much higher quality look. We came across a design of Darth Revan by COLOR3DJP which was a perfect match for this high quality aesthetical material.
We made this print on the new Ultimaker S5 with a 0.14mm layer height and standard PLA settings. It took approximately 3.5 days to print.
Darth Revan has been a fan favorite ever since being introduced in The Old Republic video game. Star Wars figurines and 3D printing have been going hand in hand ever since the first Star Wars fan got his or her hands on a 3D printer. This bust is a great addition with a very nice finish.
When developing our semi-matte PLA we’ve been looking for a solution which doesn’t involve fibers to achieve a less glossy surface finish. We did not want to loose the ease of use our PLA and keep print settings and parameters as close to regular PLA setttings. For a full matte finish our XT-CF20 and PA_CF Low Warp do the trick, but they need a hardened steel nozzle to print with. The brand new PLA Semi-Matte Black will bring a new aesthetic quality to our range of PLA filaments.
If you’re looking to upgrade your 3D printed projects to the next level, our PLA Semi-Matte will do the trick.
