Premium 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75MM 1kg/spool, White
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.

Questions and Answers
I'm still a noob, but I'm had absolutely no trouble using this filament.
PROS: In terms of roundness my digital micrometer says the filament is 1.757 in one cross section and 1.770 measured ninety degrees to the first. Personally I'd call that spot-on. Winding on the spool if fine and it feeds without any problems.

PROS: So far this filament is way better than the sample filament that came with the bot. I haven't had any problems with the diameter being too large and jamming up the extruder. The overall size of my filament has been between 1.5-1.7mm so you might have to adjust accordingly.
