    Premium 3D Printer Filament 1.75mm 0.5kg/spool, Color Changing UV Purple

    Create photosensitive objects on your 3D printer using this 1.75mm Color Changing PLA 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.

    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.

    This filament is photosensitive. Under normal conditions it is a neutral/whitish color, but when exposed to sunlight it quickly changes to a brilliant purple. It comes on a 0.5kg spool and prints at temperatures between 190 ~ 220°C.

    Reel Dimensions:

    • Spool Diameter: 200mm (7.87")
    • Spool Width: 37mm (1.46")
    • Hub Diameter: 53.5mm (2.11")
    • Hub Width: 37mm (1.46")

    Hard to print with
    I have been able to print a few successful prints at this point. Most prints take multiple adjustments before they will properly start. The filament is very finicky (temp, speed, etc) and is much harder to get to stick to the build plate than any of the solid colors that I have used from both Monoprice and BamTack! The color change is a neat and the kids love it. I just wish the material was easier to print with.

    maybe i got a bad one
    The filament was extremely dry and brittle, and produced brittle prints. The filament is so brittle you can just snap it in half with three fingers in one bend. It changed color a bit when I put my print in the window, but because it was so brittle I didn't even take it into full bright sunlight to test it.
