Proto-Pasta was born from a mission to make 3D printing more interesting and useful, through improved access to unique materials. The Vancouver-based manufacturer aims to produce a variety of unique filament finishes to allow for diversity in prints.
Proto-Pasta Carbon Fiber - a reinforced PLA, made from PLA Resin compounded with 15% by weight short chopped Carbon Fibers. It is designed to be stiff, or to resist bending. It is a very stiff material and makes parts with an incredibly solid feel. The appearance is black with a metallic shimmer in direct light.
Proto-pasta Magnetic Iron PLA - as its name implies - responds to magnets and behaves similarly to pure iron, even to the point of rusting! Magnetism opens up a new world of practical applications and fun creations.
