    Premium 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75mm 1kg/spool, Silver

    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.

    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")

    Is this food safe? For example, can I make cookie cutters out of it?
    Laura H on Jul 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: PLA printing material should not be used with food. The material biodegrades over time and also absorbs water. Plastics such as PET are deemed by the FDA as "food-safe".

    Grey vs. Silver
    Once the I cut off the initial meter or so of filament everything printed fine. I am about 40 hours into printing parts with this filament and besides the initial breakage issues, everything has been perfect.

    Fortunately Monoprice filament is cheap so the Silver and the Grey being the same price makes okay that they are basically the same color. The silver has a slight sheen to it that is noticeable at certain angles of viewing but after printing the same part with both the grey and silver PLA, its difficult to tell the difference between the two. YMMV.

    Overall I would recommend this filament. It smooth, feeds great, and works.

    PROS: Prints nicely. Looks silver-ish.

    CONS: I had a problem with the first meter or so of the filament.

    It kept snapping at random spots.

    I really recommend pulling about a meter of the top and cutting it off. I keep the extra bit for friction welding parts after I'm done.

    Quality Filament
    A good filament is one that works every time. It doesn't break, it isn't tangled, and it is consistent. I also like the next day shipping for when I need it quickly, which is often the case. The color is a bit darker than I expected, which is fine.

    Works well, gray more than silver, spool is large and heavy
    I use this filament in my AIO Robotics Zeus printer. The spool is large and heavy - a great value - but it's too thick to fit in the filament area of my printer which is sized for the common Voltivo spools. I have to leave the door open and prop something against it to keep it on the spool. Printing it looks great, though more gray than glossy silver. Overall a good value.

    PROS: Inexpensive, quality

    CONS: Fat heavy spool, gray not silver
