Pici up this filament today! It’d be Fusilli not to buy this filament! We can’t tagliatelle you enough about this filament. Are these puns Spirali-ng out of control?
Sorry! We had to get that out of our system. This Proto-Pasta Magnetic Iron Filament from ProtoPlant opens up a new world of fun, rustic looking 3-D printed creations. This filament behaves similarly to iron – even to the point of rusting – making it a great choice for costumes and props.
Since this filament behaves similarly to iron, it’s actually “ferromagnetic” as opposed to magnetic. This means that magnets will stick to items printed with this filament but 3D Printed items will not behave as magnets. And, of course, even though it has the word “Pasta” in the name, its not for eating.
This is 1.75mm filament and is made in the USA by Proto-Pasta. Check out the proto-pasta site here for more info and frequently asked questions about this filament!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
