PolyAlchemy Elixir is a 3D printing plastic made up of PLA and other polymers. The resulting effect is a stunning pearlescent shine, unmatched by normal PLA. It's great for for printing busts, vases or any model that needs to stand out from the rest. PolyAlchemy has worked hard to bring you what they believe is one of the best PLA’s on the market today for FDM 3D printing, plus, it makes almost any model you print look twice as good.

Printing with PolyAlchemy Elixir

Printing with PolyAlchemy can be a little different from normal filaments. First, you'll notice differences when simply loading the filament. It's likely that if you extrude the filament above your bed, you'll see it bulge up rather than extrude like a piece of string. This is no cause for concern, but simply how this filament reacts to being extruded. 

If you're a LulzBot 3D Printer user, I recommend simply utilising the PolyLite PLA Standard/High Quality Print Profiles on any of the Printers to have success with Elixir. You might find some stringing is happening, in which case tune up the retraction speed/distance settings as required. Apart from that, this profile will work great. If you have any questions, get in touch with us. 

If you're a hobbyist printer user and you need extra information on the print settings for Elixir, there's a great guide written by PolyAlchemy that gives you some fantastic starting points. Here's a link. As always, if you have questions/discussion on that let us know in the comments below and we can help out.

Storing and Using your Elixir

It's also important to store your PolyAlchemy in a safe and dry environment when you aren't printing with it as it can react poorly with moisture in the air. We recommend taking care when unpackaging the spool to not damage the bag beyond use, that way you can store it back in there. Humidity in the air can cause some excessive stringing (the really wispy kind, not the problematic kind). We'd recommend either printing in a drier environment, OR, simply removing the wisps post-print.

  • Welcome to my project on how to make a very stylish lamp out of a potentially un-stylish material - concrete! To be honest, style (or rather beauty) is in the eye of the beholder and so I'll leave it up to you to decide if it fits in your surroundings or not. What do you think? All the necessary steps are here but if you don't like reading the just sit back, relax and watch the video instead. When I said to people at work that I...
  • Time lapsing in OctoPrint (Properly!)
  • Now that we have decked out our Lulzbot Taz 6 3D Printer with a really nice looking acrylic enclosure, I'm just about ready to turn on some serious 3D printing work. But before I dive into that endless pool of fun, it's a good time to take 5 minutes and set up our Taz 6 and it's OctoPrint Server with a bed-mounted camera and light system. That way I can monitor my prints from the other side of the warehouse using OctoPrint, and m...

Well, that's the name of the manufacturer of the PVC pipe I used and the name grew on me as I completed the project! Whilst this might look like a complex project if you have access to the metric PVC pipe and a 3D printer I'm actually quite easy t...
  • The Hipster Coaster
  • We wanted to make a interactive display of the fun that can be had with DIY projects to take to Sydney Mini Maker Faire. We decided to do so by utilising the TinkerKit Braccio from Arduino.org, alongside some 3D Printing ingenuity, for an engaging display for all ages. Enter the Hipster Coaster in all its glory.   All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...
