Reduce Visibility of Printed Layer Lines

MatteForge is a new filament that produces a beautiful matte, low gloss finish right off the print bed.

This innovative filament produces a finish unlike any other filament. MatteForge reduces the visibility of printed layer lines and gives a professional appearance to all prints. This is achieved whilst enhancing the contrast between light and shadow to highlight fine details. This highly desirable effect makes MatteForge perfect for industrial and product design, and technical engineering models.


Beautiful Matte Finish

We decided to launch MatteForge as we were tired of the usual glossy finish associated with almost all PLA based materials.

MatteForge gives an enhanced matte finish that exceeds even the best ABS filaments but has the ease of printability associated with PLA. This is done without the need for additives that might weaken the filament.


Mechanical Properties

Not only does MatteForge have a stunning low gloss finish, it also has very good mechanical properties such as high impact resistance and good flexural strength.

MatteForge is very easy to print so is great for both beginners and printing professionals. As it is PLA based it does not warp and has amazing layer adhesion, but more importantly MatteForge has no odour.
