Good shout heard good things about this filament!
Any idea of length?

Any idea of length?


Google suggests 1kg of PLA 1.75mm is somewhere in the region of 330m long
Is it good?
Honestly I've never tried it but the name pops up time and time again on the 3d printer user groups as a good reliable brand

1kg - same as every other 1.75mm 1kg spool.

1kg is not a measure of length...

Nope but the same length (give or take a couple of meters) as every other reel you seem to be able to buy of the same weight.

A nice calculator here if you ever want to guestimate how many meters you've got left if you know the empty reel weight. rigid.ink/blo…ool
Great post - thanx
And here's another American favourite Hatchbox Black PLA

This is a bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question but:

What colours are worth stocking up 1kg on? I bought a reel of white for fixings etc, but at these prices I feel I should consider further colours.

I got the PLA+ dark grey from another recent Amazon UK deal, but wondering if I need black as well (or even instead).

What colours have you (anecdotally) found the most use for?

I guess that depends on your personal use of the machine.

I tend to use mostly black for little DIY projects or wood filament for decorative pieces. However I do tend to find myself thinking that would look great in "xxxx" colour if only I had a roll.

I just ordered one of each colour 😁
Also if your interested in making lithopanes then white is the best choice to stock up on
I recently purchased an ender 3d printer (crealty or something like that) as a xmas present.

would this be suitable for that? I'm worried that I'll buy the wrong stuff and end up ruining xmas ;-)
Any recommendations for that printer or is filament filament and anything will do.
Oh - let's say I'll be producing some little keyring characters etc - standard kids stuff.
Any help greatly appreciated.

This would be perfect.

The Ender 3 by Creality is what I have
that's great thank you.

looking forward to setting this up with a stomach full of red wine ;-)
Thanks op... 3 ordered

Yeah I got the ender 3 pro and it works fine
Looks like it's over folks, prices have doubled or they are now out of stock.
I realise I'm a few months late.

But just to warn folk looking to buy filament in the future.

I wouldn't buy this PLA filament again nor would I recommend others do so.

Had no issues with other brandless filaments.

But have major issues with this adhering to the bed

This is on the popular Creality Ender 3 with a mirror bed.

The Black printed flawlessly with no issues.
Had to majorly play around with temperature to get the orange to work.

As it stands the Real Blue, Navy and See Through Purple just aren't adhering.

A number of Reddit threads reporting similar to myself.
Looks like a brand trading on a previously good reputation that have changed the formula and knackered their product.

No problems with mine.

Give your bed a good clean with IPA and try again.

Also using an Ender 3 with glass bed
Seethrough purple fine on mine too (glass Creality bed) - I wipe mine with IPA after every print though.
Really?!?

No way

I'm up at 237 degrees extruder and 67 bed and only now just beginning to get it to work.

Glass bed wiped with a degreaser.

That's way too hot. You should be closer to 190-200 degrees and 50 bed temp
I know

That's where I started at and it did nothing.

Dragged it around the bed like wiping it with a cloth.

I was reading about PLA absorbing moisture and wondering if that was my issue.

But 3 reels all the same seemed suss (blue, see-through purple and navy).

Black printed flawlessly

Orange was a pain but when I got the glass bed it worked a treat.

I naively assumed the blues and purple would be the same
Edited by: "EMM386" 28th Jan
Mine is 200 head / 55 bed for the purple and 205 / 60 for the white with good results.
Sounds more like your nozzle is too far from the bed. Personally I use a 0.1mm feeler gauge to level my bed. The gauge just slides between nozzle and bed with a tiny amount of friction and I have no problems getting the first layer to stick.

If you are printing on glass have you tried hairspray? I bought the green one of these and have been very impressed so far on my printers! Shame the price isn’t as good as I’d buy this again!
