Metal Fill Filament other than ColorFAb?

I wanted to try and do some metal prints, but don't really have the money for color fab metalfill

Is there any other brand of metal fill that works well? I mainly just need to be able to polish it to look like an actual piece made of metal

Any help would be great!

Thanks!

Re: Changing a M2 from 1.75 to 3.0 mm Filament

I was just thinking with 3mm you could push more plastic faster, since the filament is larger. Am I wrong?

Re: PETG failing to feed, any thoughts

Ok I got the prints working every time but I'm getting little "pimples" around the outside of print. Any idea of what to adjust to get rid of these; I can get pictures if it would help
