Premium 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75MM 1kg/spool, Black
Get outstanding 3D printing results when you use 1.75mm PLA 3D Printer Filament from Monoprice!
PLA is a good choice for a printing material if you are looking for high accuracy and high resolution. It extrudes at lower temperatures, does not require a heated base, and has a very low shrinkage rate (0.3%). PLA is harder than ABS, but is therefore also a bit more brittle. Additionally, PLA is a plant-based plastic, which means that it is biodegradable and gives off a slightly sweet odor, like roasting corn.
This 1 Kg spool features a thickness of 1.75mm ±0.10mm, with a roundness variation of only 0.03mm. It has a nominal processing temperature of 210° C (410°F). Thickness and roundness factors are laser measured at the factory to ensure accuracy over the entire length of the filament.
The negatives of using PLA is that it is vulnerable to degradation from moisture, sunlight, and heat. Additionally, it is more prone to overheating during processing, which can cause dripping and drooping if it gets too hot.

PROS: good filament, colors look great, no clogging.
CONS: spool doesn't fit the monoprice maker select spool holder. no usage information on package
PROS: Half the price of MakerBot 1.75mm PLA Filament, good boxed packaging, sturdy fully enclosed spool, same results in final printed object as name-brand filament.
CONS: Filament unsprings from the reel easily if you don't keep a grip on the free end, feels thin and flimsy, filament is wavy and looks like it was rolled onto the reel by an epileptic (no offense to anyone with that horrible condition). Matt black texture, not shiney smooth. Not really a con if the printed product is shiny. Could be a pro if comes out matt and that's what you want.
PROS: Excellent quality and shipping speed.
PROS: working great
PROS: Prints great
Consistent as far as I can tell
PRICE is SO GOOD
I have tried other vendors and paid more, but I keep coming back to Monoprice for the price, quality and fast delivery.
PROS: Price, Quality and Fast Shipping
PROS: Decent quality prints for the price.
CONS: Filament snags coming off the spool.

PROS: Pliable - not as brittle as some PLA, so doesn't break easily
CONS: Shape of filament varies, which breaks builds when the feeder mechanism can't engage filament
Needless to say, I'm quite disappointed that I paid for a kilogram of seemingly useless filament. Maybe it'll work in another printer if I get a different one someday. Maybe I just got a dud and the inconsistencies aren't usually as bad as I've experienced. But of course, based on what it's been like for me I must advise against buying this product.
PROS: Layer bonding is great. Adheres to the printbed easily, especially with a slightly heated bed - little to no apparent warping.
CONS: Filament diameter varies quite widely (between 1.63 and 1.87 in my case) and is alternately very soft or brittle at points, leading to repeat failures when the feed gets gummed up or clogged or the feed off the spool cracks.
Thank you for your review on PID 10551. My apologies for the inconvenient experience you have faced while using this filament so far.
