    Premium 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75MM 1kg/spool, Glow In The Dark Green

    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 Dimensions:

    • Reel Diameter: 195mm (7.68")
    • Hub Diameter: 95mm (3.74")
    • Spindle Diameter: 38mm (1.50")
    • Reel Width: 80mm (3.15")

    Affordable glow in the dark filament
    This filament glows well and prints like a charm only downside is the added nozzle wear from the highly abrasive particles in the filament. I would highly recommend getting a hardened or treated nozzle for this stuff. Other than that I had great results printing this at 210 with a bed temp of 80 and the finished prints glow well after being exposed to light for a bit.

    PROS: Affordable
    Consistent diameter
    Glows brightly
    No popping or clogging

    CONS: Can wear out your nozzle quite quickly but is easily remedied with a hardened nozzle

    Glow in the dark! What else do you need to know?
    Our kids were very excited to see glow-in-the-dark as an option. Overall the prints from our PrintRBot Simple Maker have come out on par with other PLA filaments. Will definitely buy again!

    PROS: This stuff really glows in the dark well!

    The kids love it!

    CONS: Prints a bit "stringyier" than some other PLA filaments, but cleans up nicely.

    I don't own any other glow in the dark, but this works pretty well. Glows very well also.

    PROS: Seems like good quality filament, fair price

    Quality Material, With a a Significant Flaw
    I purchased a Monoprice Maker a Architect and four spools of PLA filament for Christmas. So far, I have used the glow-in-the-dark spool, plus the white spool that ships with the printer. The print quality from both is excellent, and, yes, the glow-in-the-dark filament does actually glow in the dark! I am very pleased with the quality of the final product when the printing is done.

    But there is a significant flaw: the haphazard manner in which the filament is wound onto the spool at the factory has resulted in filament getting bound up during printing, as the strand that is feeding to the printer becomes caught underneath another strand of filament that is still looped on the reel. This has ruined my print jobs twice: once with the white filament and now with the glowing green filament, wrecking a job that had been printing for over 12 hours and was 95% complete. If the filament were neatly wound around the reel so that there were no crossovers, I think the problem would not exist. Unfortunately, the only workaround I have found is babying the spool by checking it for crossovers every fifteen minutes or so, and undoing them before they bind up the line feeding to the printer. I'm actually considering unwinding the entire spool of filament and rewinding it in a neat, continuous run. But should I really have to do any of this?

    PROS: The filament quality is very good, producing excellent printed objects.

    CONS: Filament crossovers are an unnecessary pain, ruining print jobs, and should be corrected at the factory.
