Where to Buy Filamentive Cosmic Blue Filament
You can purchase from their website.
Its layers are almost invisible. Also, you can see the parts; they appear like they have not been 3D printed. The best part about using any type of filament that has additive. For example carbon fiber, glitter or wood filaments can help to give the illusion that you can not see any layer lines.
We love using our delta 3D Printer from Tevo their Little Monster and using a 0.4 nozzle. I do recommend going up to a 0.5 nozzle because it may clog and you don’t want that. The basic setting I used was, Infill 12%, perimeter shells 1, top solid layers 4, bottom solid layers 3, heat bed temperature at 50c, hotend temperature 215c used a layer height of 0.25.
This may be something different from what other people do, but it works well for me. When you scroll down, you will see that the model is not all painted. This is because I wanted to show off the filament also. Usually, I would use a primer before painting any model, but this time there was no need. By using automotive clear lacquer, it makes the model smoother and super glossy. Apply one thin coat at first and let it dry then apply another two thick coats to finish it off.
I also found out if you use resin and a UV pen, it can help correct any errors. With my printer having salmon skin, the face-off voodoo Bree was not perfect when I first painted it, so I sanded it back down. Then applied Dragon resin and placing the UV pen over it for a few seconds and then sand it again. I continued to do this technique until I was happy with a pretty face with no wrinkles.
So, with having the lacquer already on, I’m not going to worry about getting paint on the parts I don’t want. Why? Because the finish acts as a barrier and that I can scrape or clean the paint off it without compromising the filament colour. If you use water-based paints, you can take the paint off with water and a paper cloth.
My favourite paints that are used is citadel and Vallejo. I went for a Jamaican theme with red, yellow, green and black. It’s nothing exciting, but by adding some simple colours in the right places, it can make a world of difference. To add a little extra effect to the base, I used glow in the dark spray paint. Or to get the world’s glowiest glow then I recommend using LIT powder by Stuart simple super bright.
