Premium 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75MM 1kg/spool, Gray
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: Nice print.
PROS: This is my second roll of this gray PLA filament. I'm using the Monoprice Dual 3d printer and making both two color and single color parts. The filament has performed perfectly when making parts. The parts come out almost perfect every time, the filament has never jammed or broken going to the extruder. When compared with other brands costing $48.00 and up, the Moneprice performs better in making parts at all three levels, low, medium, and high setting. Four Stars.
CONS: Price is a little high, compared with other vendors selling PLA filament, but the filament works well.
CONS: Requires 5 degrees hotter temperature that ColorFabb and is onl1.67mm vice advertised 1.75mm.
PROS: Good color consistency, makes good objects.
CONS: Quite a bit of variance in diameter
Hotend Temp: 205°C
Bed Temp: 50°C
Average Print Speed: 30mm/sec
PROS: Excellent price, adheres well with glue stick and a slow speed, looks nice on completed prints
CONS: Spool is too wide for Maker Select v2 spool holder (more of a problem with the printer) getting the temp/bed temp/print speed settings dialed in is a little bit of a challenge. My first large print (27 hours) failed due to a layer split about 5cm up the print and I didn't notice until it was done. Probably due to my own inexperience and not having the settings dialed in properly yet.
CONS: Keeps clogging the extruder when printed with .35mm nozzle
PROS: Reasonable price. Nicely packed.
CONS: Poor layer adhesion. Very Stringy.
I am truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 11778. If I may ask, do you happen to have calipers so we can measure the diameter of the filament at different sections of the spool? Approximately how much filament have you used thus far? Also, do you happen to have the order number for this purchase? Please let me know so we can look into this matter further. Thank you in advance!
