A nice affordable ABS filament for the 3D printing enthusiast. The filament comes on a nice sturdy spool that does a great job at keeping the filament in check. Its diameter is consistent (within the ±0.10mm specified) and prints without popping or clogging. It adheres well to blue painters tape, kapton tape, abs juice and build tak. The surface finish is fantastic and over all its just a great filament. I had great results with it on my i3 with a hotend temp 230 and a print bed temp of 100. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice versatile ABS filament.
PROS: Affordable Consistent diameter No popping or clogging
I usually order Octave Filament, but am super excited that Monoprice has started carrying 3D Printing supplies. The larger spool keeps filament from getting tangled when spool is new. I had to baby sit my Octave spools until about 20% was used to make sure the filament wouldn't pop off and get tangled, no such problems with this stuff. I've printed about 15 hrs between the Black, Red and White filament and no issues what so ever.
The only draw back that I have found is that the plastic is just a shade paler than I was hoping for and comes out a little more on the pink side, but I made some Pokeballs with it and it turned out alright. As long as you don't put it next to something that is true red you should be okay.
On a side note, and this is purely anecdotal mythbusters style science, but it seems to be a little bit more resistant to Acetone and so takes a little longer in the bath to smooth out.
Can't wait for more colors - Tardis blue would be a great place to start :D
