Premium 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75MM 1kg/spool, Red
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: Goes down cleanly. Not a single bubble or surface imperfection in the whole reel, which meant clean feeds and no jams.
CONS: A little translucent for my taste. Not really suited to some applications because of that.
PROS: First prints with this were some gears for a clock. Gears turned out very nice, and quite strong.
CONS: This material is not opaque as other colors are. Instead it's slightly translucent, giving it a very shiny look, and lets some amount of light shine through it. If I had to make a comparison, it looks kinda like a Jolly Rancher. This isn't a "con" if that's what you're looking for, but I was hoping for a solid red.
