    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.

    The most important tip I can give is to experiment with the extruder temperature if you are having problems with the filament sticking. I was using this filament with a Makerbot Replicator 2 which has a default extruder temperature of 230 C. With this filament nothing with sticking to the build platform, I even tried the blue painter's tape trick. Once I lowered the extruder temp to 220 C and had good results. I'm very happy with this filament and will buy more from Monoprice soon!

    PROS: Great price

    Looks good

    Good product but color is a little off
    It looks like they need to add a bit more pigment in these PLA filaments. You can get mostly opaque prints if you lower the temp but it does come put a bit translucent.

    Other than that I have had nothing but good prints out of this filament and this is my third roll.

    PROS: I have had nothing but good prints out of the Monoprice PLA

    CONS: Its not red. Its a really nice orange color that I actually like but its not red.

    Great Filament!
    This was the filament I bought with the Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer, and it has not let me down. The material is good for almost any print, and at a reasonable price too. I have almost used it all up it a week, and I plan to buy a lot more.

    Beautiful Translucent Red!
    Was expecting a solid red and discovered the product is actually a beautiful translucent red that prints *really* nicely with the MakerBot Replicator 2. I love both the product and the price!

    Bought for my son's PrintrBot Simple. Works fine, no problems.

    Good for the price
    Bought a red reel to print a batch of replacement covers. Went down cleanly, reasonable surface finish. I find that PLA is generally a lot more consistent between brands and batches than ABS, but this is some of the better PLA I have used.

    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.

    Not really red, but not a big deal
    Material is as well as any other PLA from Monoprice, which is to say it's pretty decent.

    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.

    Product is Translucent
    While the picture and description leads you to believe that it is fully Opaque, it is not. It lets quite a bit of light through and you can see the internal structure of your prints. I've gotten the black version which is fully opaque. Not sure why this one is not. Printing wise, no issues with that part.

    Good, but kind of disappointed
    Was hoping for a solid red, but this is translucent. Now, I wanted translucent as well, but I got this thinking it would be more solid. Other than that, it's good.

    This stuff prints out like a translucent dark orange. Very disappointed with the color of this. Purchased through Staples.

    CONS: It is NOT red

    Response from Monoprice

    Thank you for your review on PID 10553. I am truly sorry to hear about the color issues experienced with this filament. If I may ask, are you able to send me well-lit pictures of finished prints? Also, do you happen to have the order number for this purchase? Please let me know as I will be passing this information along to our product team to be reviewed further. My apologies for the trouble and thank you in advance!
