Elixir is blend of PLA and polymers that results in a stunning pearlescent shine that is unmatched by normal PLA.


It's perfect for printing busts, vases or any model that needs to stand out with an amazing sheen. It's not as strong as standard PLA however when printed correctly the overall surface finish is very clean. Many colors are available.

Filament tends to retract slightly in hotend during travel moves.
Start printing at 215°C for good adhesion.
Sticks too well to acrylic, make sure to print higher than usual.
