Premium 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75MM 1kg/spool, Blue
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.
- Reel Diameter: 195mm (7.68")
- Hub Diameter: 95mm (3.74")
- Spindle Diameter: 38mm (1.50")
- Reel Width: 80mm (3.15")
PROS: Prints good, cheap
CONS: Wide spool, no resealable bag.
PROS: Half the price of Makerbot filament, cool translucent appearance
CONS: Not 1.75mm, closer to 1.65mm, flimsy, harder to feed
The spools the PLA comes on are silly robust, unlike the thin walled one piece spools other PLA I've purchased came on.
The PLA feeds easily in to the hod end of my QU-BD Two Up with Borden extruder and E3D v6 hotend. The Monoprice PLA filament gives great results at 200c using 0.07mm to 1.0mm layer heights and 10% to 50% infills. I'm working on a project that requires parts that are taking my printer fifteen hours to print. I've been printing near round the clock for four days straight without issue.
PROS: Price, consistency, spool quality, color quality.
CONS: None. This is great filament.
PROS: Smooth extrusion, no jams or problems during use
PROS: low price , consistent quality
CONS: had to respool it, hole is too small for makerbot spools (or print a new hub)
it voids your makerbot warranty, but good luck proving it (deny deny deny)
