This one is FINALLY a gold filament I can actually use for gold coloured items. The silk filament gives it that tell-tale shine that you can expect from silk PLA, and the colour is spot on for actual gold colour, so it gives very much the appearance of gold for which I've been looking.
If you're looking for a good, beautiful gold metallic PLA that isn't actually a metal-fill PLA, this should be the top of your list.
Overall its beautiful but extremely stringy (expansion & phase changing) and poor for high detail models. Even pushing retraction distance to 8mm, it wont retract enough. NEVER ever enable ironing with this - it will cause instant phase change and you will have inconsistent gold coming out.
The only complaint I have with it is how it comes out of the nozzle when loading/unloading the filament. It pulls back up on itself a lot more than I'm used to seeing with standard PLA. I think this is part of the deal with silk finish filaments, something to do with how the modified polymers react to the sudden temperature change. To get it to print well I had to print at 230C for my first layer and 225 for the rest.
Otherwise, I've also been having issues with my Prusa i3 MK3S having repeated jams since I used this. I'm not certain it's related to this filament, it could just easily be something else entirely, but I do think something about the way this stuff prints means you need to treat it like switching from a higher temp plastic such as PETG to PLA, so do perform an extruder pathway cleaning when changing.

It's expensive, but that's always the case with specialized filament.
However, be sure to measure the filament you get. I measured 7 times on 12cm, not a single one of my measurements came out at 1.75mm - but it all DID stay within the promised variation of 0.05mm.
This unfortunately resutls in inconsistent extrusion and, as a result, inconsistent dimensional accuracy. I printed a 1-wall cube that had walls varying with as much as 0.04mm, and this is normal for poor quality filament.
So keep in mind, this is a beautiful but low quality spool of filament. So if you need solid dimensional accuracy, this is not for you. But if you need a filament that shines and shimmers beautifully, you certainly will love this. But you need to measure your average diameter of your spool and tune that in your slicer, otherwise you certainly won't have good results.
