Experiment with four special filaments
This set consists of four 250g spools of specialty filament: Gold, Silver, Thermochromic and Glow in the dark. By buying specialty filaments in smaller spools, you can try out different materials to suit your preferences. The 1kg set is enough to print dozens of trinkets and items. PLA is an easy to print material that does not require a heated bed (but can use one though). The printing temperature of FrontierFila PLA is between 180-200 celsius. If you have problems with bed adhesion, check bed calibration, try to print the first layer at higher temperature and at a lower speed.
Compatible with virtually all 3D printers
The 1.75mm filament is compatible with all printers utilizing 1.75mm nozzles. FrontierFila filament has uniform shape and diameter to ensure your nozzles would clog less and the quality of prints are better.
PLA that is better for the environment
We use Natureworks Ingeo PLA to make our filament to ensure superb quality and that the filament is better for the environment.
Why choose FrontierFila?
Better for the environment
In manufacturing our filament, we use US made Natureworks Ingeo PLA. Manufacturing Ingeo products produce approximately 80% less greenhouse gases and utilize around 50% less non renewable energy than traditional polymers.
High quality filament for better print results
We are constantly working to improve the print quality of our filament and pay careful attention to materials used and listen to feedback from the community to make our filament as good as it can be.
Uniform shape and diameter
FrontierFila premium filament is manufactured with precision to be of uniform shape and diameter meaning your printer will get clogged less and your printed objects will be of better quality.
We want you to be happy
If you are not happy, we want to hear it. Throughout our existence, customer feedback has helped us shape FrontierFila products to where they are now. If you are not happy, let us know!
The filament changes color from dark green to yellowish when heated above 32 celsius. We've demonstrated the colors in the images to showcase the effect.
GLOW IN THE DARK
This fun filament is basically white in daylight, but the PLA is mixed with a small quantity of phosphorescent material to make the filament and any items printed with the material glow in the dark.
GOLD & SILVER
These two spools are colored goldish yellow/brown and silver grey. When polished they have a cool look, but if you are looking for a proper silver / gold effect, we would recommend our bronze / aluminium filaments as they have a more metallic finish.

All filaments print fine at 220c (go lower and you may have first-layer adhesion issues) with the exception of GITD, which needs to print around 10c hotter in my experience.
Doesn't contain much (if any) metal particles as far as I can tell, but does sparkle in the right lighting conditions
Quite similar to gold, but seems to sparkle a little bit less.
Glows well enough when "charged" with a flashlight, or when left for a while with some ambient light. So far I've used it to print some keycaps for a sound mixing desk and some flashlight covers. I imagine it will work well for items that you need to find during a power outage, provided they are able to "charge" beforehand.
Do note that this filament most likely contains strontium aluminate, which can and will wear down your (brass) nozzle.
Changes from dark green (20c ambient) to yellow-greenish after holding it in your hand for a while. I used it to print a replacement Xbox controller faceplate, but unfortunately it broke while I tried to remove the supports. Could be the filament, could be my print settings (I used rather low temperature settings initially).
All in all I'm pretty happy with the pack. It's not much more expensive than 1kg of conventional PLA, but you get 4 different filaments instead. Here's to hoping more packs (wood, TPE, carbon?) will be offered soon.
do you like to babby sit your prints?
you will have to with this. 2hr print and it keeps snaping after 30-40mins into it. or jams up.
only tested the gold- which looks more like a dull bronze yellow.
feels not as flexible as my normal pla and i raised the temp even to 120 thinking it might not get stuck. with no better result.
prints seem to string alot. could be its just me.
im not giveing up on this will keep trying diffrent combinations of bed temperatures and extruder settings to get this right but I don't have any issues with any of my normal pla.
So maybe it's time to throw in the hat.
tryed a tiny 7min print of a trolly token in the hour i spent on it it printed 3 full prints 2 of which warped on cooling. the rest is all failed scrap.
not worth is weight in gold.
if you are just doing a small print the size of a coin or ring its ok anything bigger sit with it an cheak its still coming out.
still to try the silver which looks not silver. and the thermal and the light reactive which glows green.
Heat changing - goes quite well from a darkish green to an off yellow (or dirty yellow)
Glow in the dark - not great but does glow. 60 seconds under a bright light probably gives about 30 seconds of bright glow. Think of this as more of a novelty filament, maybe for kids stuff
Silver - is not silver ( same as gold is not really gold). It’s more of a medium gray. These are not the metallic based filaments that you can get. Just coloured plastic.
