Gold Silk
Easy to Print?:

A little more difficult to print than PLA but easier than ABS. We suggest 200-220°C.

This filament has a satin silky finish to it.  Looks great under a lit environment.

    First off I would like to say that I love Zyltech's filaments. Color is more of a honey, light mustard yellow, rather than a deep gold color. There is a nice shine/sheen to the print. Just expect the color that you see in the picture is what you will get from you print. Say if you wanted to print gold coins, you will not get the color that you want for a gold coin.

    Great Filament and easy to print with

    Purchased a roll for this gold to try the new composite filament and was not disappointed, It was very easy to print with following the suggested setting and the print was very smooth and shinny. I used 235c at 80mm and .15 layer and first print was prefect, No issues with print and very happy with this product. I can't wait to try the other colors

    Spun Honey

    Posted by Brian Skoog on Apr 4th 2019

    This is my first spool of silk PLA ever, and I had no issues printing with it right out of the box. The shine and luster are impressive, but I wouldn’t call it gold. To me, gold makes me think of jewelry. This is more like spun honey, or gold silk bed sheets, and I’m absolutely not complaining; it’s one of the few filaments I own that really feels special.

    I printed cubes of this material from 1 to 4 perimeters to check for color differences, and found that only 2 perimeters are needed for maximum color. Printing cubes at 200 to 215 (in increments of 5°C) revealed no color difference by temperature.

    Here are the settings that worked for me:
    Nozzle Temperature: 200C
    Bed Temperature: 60C
    Layer Height: 0.2mm
    Print Speed: 50-65mm/s
    Retraction Distance: 0.4mm
    Retraction Speed: 60mm/s

    Note: having a smaller retraction distance really helps to avoid jamming with this filament.
