When taking a good look at 3D printing as a whole, it’s always great to see how there are so many different kinds of 3D Makers, with some who like to focus purely on decorational and aesthetic prints, others who prefer to focus purely on functional prints, and of course many more who like to blend aesthetics with functionality and enjoy the best of both worlds. If you enjoy experimenting with new polymers and colours in your 3D printing adventures, but aren’t eager to learn a whole new set of printing specifications for different types of plastic, SunLu Silky PLA+ Filament is designed with the easy-printing base polymer of PLA, and enhanced with polyester-like additives for a silky smooth finish. This SunLu Tri-Colour Silky PLA+ Filament takes a new spin on their silky range by combining three colours into one roll of filament! This spool is red, yellow, and green in a pretty impressive mashup, taking a whole new approach to how colours get combined into one roll. Instead of simply fusing together interchanging strings of colour like many rainbow filaments, these Tri-Colour Silky PLA+ Filaments feed all three colours at once, splitting them lengthwise into one continuous stream of multicolour filament. The result is a stunning three colour finish and curious visual affect. Prints with the SunLu Tri-Colour Silky PLA+ Filament have an interesting sheen that seems to change colours based on how light falls onto it and the angle you look at it. Although we offer an entire range of Silky Filaments, this Tri-Colour Red-Yellow-Green Silky PLA+ Filament results in absolutely beautiful models, accessories and art pieces.


SunLu Silky PLA+ Filament, in a similar fashion to standard PLA filaments, is a relatively easy filament to print with, ensuring that you don’t have to be an advanced 3D Maker to take advantage of the awesome traits that it offers. It is polymerised from the same basic materials as standard PLA, but has been enhanced with some polyester-like additives so as to give it a sheen like no other filament can offer. Furthermore, an additional benefit of these additives is that they also help to smoothen out the surfaces of prints, helping to hide layer lines and create an almost soft tactile feel as well. This is ideal for printing pretty much anything, but really shows its true benefits when printing toys and décor, as the surface gets a nice vibrant shine to it, standing out from normal prints and catching the attention of all onlookers – but without any post-processing required to get it this way. So if you love the easy printing style and bright colours of PLA, but are looking to step up your game with a truly unique style, it’s definitely time that you step up your game and start using awesome Silky Filaments like SunLu Silky PLA. Of course, as with any other filament brand, we encourage you to test out SunLu Silky PLA Filament for yourself, and if you enjoy the colours, print quality and easy printing style of it, then take the next leap and test out other materials from the SunLu filament range. So far, we’ve enjoyed each and every variant that we have in stock, and we’re quite certain that you’re going to fall in love with SunLu just like we did when first sinking our teeth into their range of materials and colours.
