3D Printer Filament

3D printers are becoming increasingly popular. This is largely thanks to the fact that they enable anyone to create almost anything they desire. As such, 3D printers are rapidly gaining popularity across the world. But while 3D printers are easy to operate, choosing the correct material is not. Most 3D printers work with PLA (polylactic acid) filaments. However, other materials like ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), nylon, polycarbonate, etc., are also commonly used.

If you’re interested in purchasing a 3D printer, then you may wonder where to start. Our buyers guide will help you figure out which material is best suited for you. It includes information about the pros and cons of each material so that you can make informed decisions.

Anyone complaining about filaments not sticking to strings needs patience and fiddling with temperature settings until it works out. Once you figure it out for a given filament (of any brand or batch), it will work. Make sure your Z axis compensation is also spot on, since perfect temperatures with a bad Z axis compensation value will result in your first layer not sticking. All of the filaments I have tested in the pack so far have been able to stick without issue (sometimes too well, but better than the alternative) and without any stringing. Due to the fact that not all printers are the same, you may need to tweak the settings below a hair to achieve optimal performance. If you can not push the filament through the nozzle, it may be due to a clicking sound from your extruder, try bumping up the temperature to 5 degrees and then trying another method. The secret to no stringing is to set this as low as possible so that your extruder is silent.

The selection of colors is great, and the bed adhesion and print quality is great. However, you can print many small, colorful items. The problem is that it is frustrating to keep it from tangling. Please do not attempt to untangle the item while printing. Instead, untangle it onto a used spool. I did not have an empty one, so I rolled it on top of a full spool. That worked.

I enjoy the new AmazonBasics PLA. All colors are good and consistent throughout. I tested the diameter of the sections and it is consistent. It isn't cheap China filament, it is made in the Netherlands. However, it also has the price to match the quality filament. Although I believe the price is fair, it is hard for me to justify buying this in larger amounts when I can find US made filament of the same, if not higher quality, for the same price or even lower. Some of the colors are beautiful, such as the gold. It has an antique look to it, I will purchase a full spool. I can easily recommend purchasing these samples. You can try all of the colors and you may find something that you like. I did. I like the gold.

The filament was spooled well, and was easy to manipulate. The selection was made because there were a variety of colors. We knew he would enjoy all of them. With this particular brand of filament there was very little, if any, making getting used to printing very enjoyable.

This is definitely worth buying, if you are new or moderately experienced with 3D printing and looking for an affordable assortment of colors. The mix is good, and they all perform the same way. Some items are slightly stringy, but nothing you cannot clean up after the print. It is fun to have cool, unique colors for small parts.

I tried at 215 and 205 on a 6575C bed. You need to print on a 55-60C bed. Nice filament color.

I am new to 3D printing and have purchased the Ender 3 Pro for Christmas. The first few prints were disappointing with lots of failed prints and loose threads. In my case I changed the filament into another brand, set the settings to a different size and the results were greatly improved. Then the wife asked for something in her favorite color, purple and I found this filament. I gave it a try and was thrilled. I have printed a few test pieces and a small box so far. The results have been exceptional. I've tried as low as 50 199 and 70 205, and could not tell much difference, which gives you an idea of how forgiving this filament is. By contrast, another fairly well regarded brand on here took very precise settings, two degrees too hot or too cold, and the prints were ruined. I am very happy and will be purchasing it again in several colors.

I am printing with an Ender 3 Pro. I use three different slicers, Slic3r, Prusaslicer, and Cura. I am relatively new to the hobby, but I have accumulated quite a bit of experience. They have their advantages and disadvantages and each of them uses different scenarios. I use a shot of Aqua Net hair spray every five prints and it works great as long as your bed is reasonably level. I am still dialing in the printer settings. I need to run it hotter than my regular pla. I found that just bumping it up to 215c seemed to work well. The temperature of the bed was 55 C. I love the finish. I like the way my prints look. They appear to be strong as well. I believe there is truth in the article Silk Plas can be more finicky or brittle. I did not have an issue with strength. It's a sign of my satisfaction with the product, that I bought another roll of rose silk. I would personally recommend it. I purchased a roll of the Elixir blue color and it was a nice experience. I plan on getting the bronze because in the pictures it looks wonderful and the rose pink and elixir blue colors I purchased seem to be true in the pictures. I am not stuck with a single brand of filiment. I have many different types, including hatchbox, several Suns, and a few no name brands. I can buy a color I like. I would recommend this instrument if you need to use it for a project due to the color options. I am very happy with the way it prints and looks. I wanted to say that I had problems with the printer's PPTFE tubing being installed incorrectly. Also I was having clicking and jamming Extruder. After figuring out the problem with the printer, I noticed my temps did not need to be as high. I found I actually had better results when I was around 205c. My prints are coming out great. Your results will likely vary according to the printer you are using. You will have some improvement in the settings.

I ordered the Silk Red Copper PLA. After reading many reviews, I decided to start to print at 215 C. I had to try 210C because I was not entirely satisfied. I believe I have found the appropriate place for use with my Ender Pro. I am making magic wands for my grandchildren and I used this for the handle of the wand. It looks very similar to shiny copper. Of course, if you look too close you can see the lines. I printed these in standard quality. I cannot imagine how long it would have taken to use a higher quality setting. I have never seen a filament wound on a spool more perfect then this one. It comes off the spool flawlessly. I will be ordering more filament from this company. The photo I uploaded is the second batch of handles I am printing at the moment.

I found this HATCHBOX PLA filament in Purple when shopping online for my Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D printer. The filament arrived quickly in a sealed plastic bag. The color match the photographs I created online and allowed for a close match to the color of the items I printed. The filament was evenly printed throughout the entire printing process, and never lost the adhesion to the heated base. I recommend this product for your 3D printing needs.

While I am just starting out, this is the second filament and brand that I purchased. It gave me interesting experiences. I used the sample of filament as well as the first spool of Overture filament that I purchased for my Ender 3 Pro. It printed beautifully at 200/60C. However, this Amazon Basics filament was causing my extruder to continually make a loud knocking sound while producing some noticeably substandard results. The increased temperature to 220-60C greatly reduced the intensity and frequency of the extruder kickback, but did not resolve them entirely. Even though I used the Amazon filament I had difficulty determining whether or not it would complete. The final improvement that ceased the knocking and has been steadily delivering great prints was when I adjusted the extruder and updated the flow value for my slicer (Cura 4.6.1). I learn in this video how to measure an extruder and adjust the flow value, http://youtu.be/xzqjtWhg9VE. I enjoy the bright orange, as seen in the included picture. It has some translucency as you can spot the infill pattern. Although I had some frustrations with this filament initially, it provided me with a great learning experience without disingenuing me from the enjoyment of 3D printing.

It is the perfect pale pink color. It was used to print a small midcentury tile bathroom in 1/6 scale.

I am not a professional at 3D printing, so why did I write a 5-star review? I know that you buy high quality PLA, level the bed, and hope for the best. I have experienced a few failures and many successes so far. I use SnapMaker Original. The Amazon Basics PLA flows very well, and the final print looks great. It was fun reaching the spool because it is a half inch wider than anything else in my collection. The SnapMaker Original has a peg with a thumb screw on the end to hang spools on. The 3" wide spool hangs past the edge of the peg. I could have hung the spool and removed the thumb screw, but I was worried that the spool might work it's way off the peg. The inside hub of the spool hung up on a printer screw, and snapped my filament guide. I printed a washer, and attempted to use it again with success. I purchased this because I have a lot of faith in Amazon Basics products. The ones that I have used are always top notch and reasonable priced. I am very satisfied with this product, however, the price is $4.00 per spool higher than the Eryta product that I normally purchase. Yes, I will buy it again in the future. The size of the spool and the price would be higher.



I used PLA to make prints of baby Yoda. The results from my prints were very nice. The sheets were printed at 200 degrees and there were no adhesion issues with a 60 degree print bed. I print on an Ender 3 printer.

WHAT WE LIKED MOST:


This plastic stuck very well and looked very good. I had one issue with some of them because they were poorly wound. The filament was tangled on the roll in such a way that it could be pulled, but it would get a bit stuck then suddenly come free and the roll would bounce around on the spindle. I assume this is because this filament was converted from 1 kg rolls to 500 grams rolls using some less reliable process than when it was first made. I had one printing fail due to the filament getting stuck in the roll and I had to cut it off and begin the print over. It was unfortunate but not so significant that it was eliminated from the review.

The song 'My Creality Ender 3' uses the dikale PLA without any issues. I print hot end at 200C and 50-60C on my bed.

It takes some trial and error to get each color printing correctly. My printer prefers to print at 195C and a glass bed of 50C-60C. It has not stuck. It has not broken. Different brands will work differently on a printer. Once your printer and filament have been configured it is a decent filament. I prefer this product for its price and quality. Every item was tightly packed in a box, each roll was vacuum sealed.

This is a multipack I purchased when purchasing my CR-10S five months ago. This filament is exceptional for the price. However, that is close. Filament was left open in an air conditioned room for months and still prints fantastic, with no sign of moisture. The color black and white prints as well as higher priced filaments.

I use a 3D pen to draw this material. I repaired a few Christmas ornaments as well.

I have worked with a handful of manufacturers of filament. The Gizmo Dorks filament works well on my Taz 6. I have yet to have it plug the nozzle so it prints smooth. The only time that it was wrong was when the support came loose from the printbed. It was not a problem with the filament. The filament has quickly become my favorite. I will attempt to try other colors when they become available. I really like them, they are a great buy'

How can someone give this product a bad review? I am more able to print with similar amount of filament that I previously purchased. My checklist for printing is to dry filament first for eight hours or more. Set the dryer to 35C while printing, setting 0.1 and / or 0.14 mm. Every time they print it is perfect. If something went wrong, you should blame your machine rather than the material.

We tried this for the first time because other PLA was getting more expensive. This was a better deal. With the addition of MakerBot and LulzBot printers, you still can get great printing quality with this improvement. We would definitely buy it again.

I really enjoy this I have yet to have any issues.

A great quality, sturdy filament for 3D printers. It is a great price compared to other brands and companies.

I was extremely interested in the opaque bright and neutral white color, which was of the most importance to me in my application. I am using it for photographic lighting and do not want it to add any color cast. It prints beautifully and exceeded the standard issues with any PETG. There was less stringing than I expected. No surprises were allowed that were unacceptable. It also adhered well to my flexible powdercoated build plate. This is a great choice for beginner men, however be sure to check the 'guides' for proper bed surfaces such as temperature string and snot. It also has a strong tendency to stick to your nozzle. After using it for a few weeks it began to string but overnight drying in a food dehydrator completely fixed it. The use of a silicone sock was very effective in preventing it from sticking to the nozzle.

I have had an Anet A8 printer for years, it's a lower end printer with upgrades that I have designed and installed. It has a heated bed, and can print ABS, although it has been a pain. I have printed dozens of designs that I created myself. I have used highend 3D printers such as Prusa, MakerBot, Objet, Form Labs and Ultimaker, and materials such as nylon X, Tough PLA, ABS, Ceramics, Various Liquid Resins at my company for seven years. On my printer, I have struggled to get PLA to adhere well to itself after the print is complete. I have increased my nozzle temp and set settings like filament retraction and nozzle priming to prevent oozing. The result has been decently adhered prints that are stringing and not as repeatable as I would like. I have used PLA and ABS from a variety of sources with very similar results. I printed this in the bottom of the temp window in order to prevent oozing issues. Thus it is a different PETG. I quickly realized that this material adheres much better than any PLA I've ever used on my printer. My test prints often will fracture when they are at a low force, and fail at the print layer. My experience with PETG so far is that it is less rigid so it will flex slightly rather than cracking and will not necessarily fail at a print layer. The temperature at which I selected and wished I'd like adhesion, it was great, but I did not get oozing. My prints look very similar to those on a higher end printer. I am very pleased with this material, and do not plan to buy any more PLA or ABS. As a side note, this material holds up exceptionally well to UV degradation and is fairly good against chemical attacks. Imaged is a cap I designed and printed with this material. Its rough dimensions are 1.260" x 0.584". I did not clean these prints up before taking the photos, although some of the hairs may have gotten knocked off while measuring. Print Settings-I printed this cap with a nozzle temp of 220C and a bed temp of 55C. I had to turn off all of my repriming nozzle settings that I normally use on PLA because I did not get oozing with this material. My first attempt to test beds and nozzle temp, however, these are the one I used.

The only negative of my personal experience is that the spool did not fully dry. That is very important if you live in a humid location, such as Tampa Florida. It is not difficult to accomplish, just need a decent storage tub and some bulk deiccant. I use Ziploc Weather Shield boxes and dry and dry five pounds of rechargeable silica gel beads to provide protection against a strong blizzard. The first step was to place the spool in my storage box for three days to let it dry out, then began printing. I have not had any hissing, popping, or crackling from wet or humid filament. I am using this to print the vid-19 surgical mask strap as found on thingiverse. You will find this filament to be very userfriendly and will work as expected if you follow FDM best practices. I suggest watching Thomas Sanladerer on Youtube. If you would like more information on this subject then do it.

So far the only issues I have had while printing are under extrusion and adhesion. I reacted with a glue stick and with general PEG settings on the Prusa Slic3r I obtained a 1.1 for my Mk2. My first prints were used for knobs on fork lift control sticks. Three months with no deterioration from the sun or the use. The next thing I wanted to buy was a fan for an air compressor.

I used PLA filament in several of my prints. It worked very well. The only print test I had a lot of trouble with was the 3D adjustable wrench. It is a solid part and the roller moves and the adjuster slides. I've printed vases and storage boxes, and they all look great. The prints have whiskers, which seems to be a characteristic of PETG. The heat gun cleans them up quickly. I would purchase this filament again when I have some.

I am working on a CoreXY printer and purchased this cheap, inkjet filament for prototyping and modifications for testing. Based off of the other reviews, I assumed it would be like all the cheap ABS filaments (inconsistent warping stinky), but it actually turned out to to print quite well. It is comparable to premium filaments such as PolyMaker and Atomic. I do not know if I received a great bag, or if the suppliers changed, but I hope they continue to offer the same product. I will definitely buy more for this price. The parts in the picture were printed with a 0.8 nozzle and a.2mm layer height 60mm/s 245c and 90c on a heavily modified ratchet ender 3 without an enclosure.

I used ABS filaments initially and found it to be very effective. I was having problems with tweaking the settings on the Ender 3 Pro and a quick fan rewire. As far as the filament, it adhered to the BuildTak surface with zero issues (100c bed and 235c hotend) and consistently printed as easily as my previous PLA prints. I will absolutely purchase this again when I run out. No point in trying other filaments, if this one serves my purposes 100%.

I needed a bed with a higher temperature, so I had to figure it out with a few attempts since I do not have an enclosed bed. The following settings are in effect 1. I used painters tape 2 to cover the bed of 125C. I would have flow of 90% so I don't get rough sides. I want it to last forever and fill to 100%. I would enjoy any high end temperature. I appreciate the print and a slightly tighter bed leveling. No issues with layer adhesion. I did not use glue, but had a hard time with bed adhesion. I'd pick the first and fifth item because they're so important.

It works very well in my 3D printer, it squirts out of the pointy part of the squirter and lands on the flat plate part. If you wait for up to an hour or more, you will have a big pile of melted plastic that sometimes will be in the shape of an object that resembles what you hoped it would be. It works, just like all of the other melty plastic strings made of ABS that you can buy on Amazon.

Use an enclosure, glass plate, hair spray. It always comes out good.

I suggest that you read this first. After lying carefully, while I examined the spool, I was able to find a single cross that I could easily have caused. The tension appears to be correct. It would appear that Miss Winds is in the spool. I am glad that this is not my first time printing because otherwise I would not have any idea what was happening. I frequently run 24hr prints. I have had all of the breaks when the machine was unattended. After the first load, the spool was never removed.

The entire reviews stated, 'Film was vacuum sealed and resealable. I received a very strong gift. Thumb pocked right through it when picking it up. I understand you would want this stuff to be dry. We'll see how 3D printers arrive tomorrow. Update: I have 40 hours of printing done so far on my printer and I am loving it. I can turn anything, but I am happy with it.

It prints cleanly and consistently. It is one of the best filaments I have used despite its low price. I prefer this to the more expensive, premium filaments, even if the expensive filaments were priced the same. The problem is bed adhesion, however, you can use glue, hair spray, or any other method to fix this. This is the most durable pla I have ever used, to the point that I use it for mechanical parts that get put under a lot of stress. All of this being said, this filament is the way to go.



I really enjoyed the adhesion to PLA. I usually need glue or hair spray to help adhesion to my heated plate. I have not experienced any issues with this one.

Buyer's Guide

How To Choose The Best 3D Printer Filament

3D Printing has become increasingly popular over recent years. The technology allows users to create their own objects by using a digital file as a blueprint. This means that anyone can make something they have always wanted to see but never thought possible. However, choosing the right type of material to use can sometimes be tricky. We have created a list of the top 5 filaments available today, along with information on what makes each one unique.

What Is A 3D Printer Filament?

Filaments are the material that goes into making up most 3D printers. They come in many different types and colors, but all filaments share some common characteristics. This allows the user to print objects using heat rather than pressure. Another important feature of filaments is that they should be flexible enough to allow for easy extrusion through the nozzles of the machine. Most filaments will also need to be strong enough to withstand repeated heating and cooling cycles without breaking down. Finally, filaments should be made from materials that won't cause any harm to the environment if thrown away after use.

Who Needs A 3D Printer Filament?

Filaments are the building blocks of any 3D printer. Without filaments, you wouldn't be able to print anything. But sometimes, finding the right type of filament isn't easy. Especially if you're new to 3D printing.

That's where this guide comes in handy. We've put together a list of the best types of filaments for beginners. These are the most common filaments you'll see in stores. But we've included other options as well. So, whether you're interested in using PLA, ABS, PETG, HIPS, Nylon, or FDM, you'll find everything you need here.

We've also included links to online retailers where you can purchase these materials. So, once you know which filament you'd like to use, you can easily order it online.

There are several different types of filaments. Each one has its pros and cons. Some are better suited for certain applications while others are ideal for specific printers. Here's a brief overview of the most commonly found filaments.

These two plastics are the most widely used filaments. However, PLA is considered a bio-based plastic. While BPA is non-biodegradable.

Both are very strong and durable. They're perfect for creating objects that require a bit of strength. But, they're not recommended for delicate items that could break during printing. Also, PLA tends to melt faster than BPA. So, if you plan to print multiple pieces, you'll likely need to change your settings after every piece.

PLA is generally cheaper than BPA. But, it costs more per gram. So, if you're planning to create large quantities of prints, you may end up spending more money overall. On the plus side, PLA doesn't contain BPA.

Here are the abbreviations for each type of filament. Remember, you can only use one abbreviation for each material. So, if you select PETG as your filament, you cannot select PEG.

The Importance Of Purchasing A Quality 3D Printer Filament

If you've ever tried to print something with a 3D printer, then you already know how frustrating it can be. You may have even experienced frustration trying to find the correct type of filament for your printer. This post will explain why it's so important to purchase a quality 3d printer filament. Read on to learn about the different types of filaments available and how they differ.

There are many different types of filaments used by 3D printers. They range from ABS plastic to PLA to TPU to FDM nylon. Each material offers certain advantages and disadvantages. For example, ABS plastic is great for creating objects that are durable and strong. On the other hand, ABS plastic tends to melt easily if exposed to heat. PLA plastic is another popular option because it melts at lower temperatures than ABS plastic. PLA plastic is often recommended for beginners who want to create simple models. Because TPU is very similar to human skin, it is often used for medical applications such as prosthetics.

In addition to the various materials used, there are several factors that determine whether a particular filament works best for a specific application. These include the size of the object being printed, the temperature of the extruder, and the speed of the machine. When selecting a filament, keep these things in mind.

Size matters. Before buying any filament, measure the diameter of the spool. Make sure that the spool contains sufficient amounts of filament to complete the project. A small amount of filament left over after completing a project could mean wasted money.

Temperature matters. Different materials behave differently depending upon their temperature. Keep in mind that the hotter the extruder gets, the faster the filament will flow through. Thus, if you plan to use hot glue to attach two pieces of paper together, you'll want to select a filament that flows quickly at higher temperatures.

Features To Consider When Buying A 3D Printer Filament

Printing speed. The faster you print, the more parts you can produce. But if you're using a slow-moving filament, you may end up wasting time waiting for each layer to dry. Look for filaments that move quickly through the extruder, allowing you to work efficiently.

Material type. Some printers only accept certain types of materials. For example, ABS plastic requires a specific material while PLA plastic accepts most other plastics. Make sure the filament you select has the right properties for your printer.

Quality. When you're shopping for a 3D printer filament, you'll want to make sure it meets quality standards. Look for filaments that are made with high-grade materials and that pass testing for durability and strength.

Cost. While there are many factors to consider when purchasing a 3D printer filament, cost isn't usually among them. However, you do want to make sure you're paying a fair price for the filament you're buying. Shop around for deals and discounts to help you save money.

Different Types Of 3D Printer Filament

Filaments are the material that goes through the extruder of your 3D printer. These are what makes up the plastic part of your prints. When choosing filaments, it’s important to know how each type of filament works. Each type of filament has its own advantages and disadvantages. We will go over the three main types below.

It is cheap and widely available. It is biodegradable and non toxic. It does however melt easily and can become brittle over time. PLA is also prone to warping and curling. It is therefore recommended to use PLA for low volume items.

It is less likely to warp and curl than PLA. It is also slightly stronger than PLA. It is however slower to print and harder to remove from the build plate. It is therefore better suited to larger objects.

It is also highly resistant to heat and chemicals. It is also fairly inexpensive. It is however slow to print and requires a heated bed to prevent warping.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions About: 3D Printer Filament

What kinds of 3d printer filament are available?

Most 3d printer filament comes in two basic forms: extruded and pre-cut. Extruded filament is created when the raw materials go through a heated cylinder where they are melted together and then forced out onto a cooling drum. Pre-cut filament is already cut into various shapes. Both types of filament have their advantages and disadvantages.

What Are The Benefits Of Extruded Filament?

Extruded filament has no smell, doesn't melt easily, and is easy to clean. On the downside, extruded filament tends to get clogged quickly, which makes it hard to print. Also, extruded filament is often less expensive than pre-cut filament.

What Are The Benefits Of Pre-Cut Filament?

Pre-cut filament is much easier to use. It's cheaper than extrusion, and it won't clog up your nozzle. However, it can sometimes be harder to clean off the build plate. Also, pre-cut filament isn't always guaranteed to be consistent in quality.

Which Type Of Filament Should I Choose?

If you're new to 3d printing, we recommend starting with extruded filament. Once you've mastered that, you'll probably want to try out pre-cut filament. If you decide to switch back to extruded filament, make sure to change your settings first.

How Do I Know What Size My 3D Printer Needs?

To determine how big your 3d printer needs, simply measure the width of your printed object. Then multiply that number by 2.5 to figure out how wide your filament will need to be.

First, check the specifications of your particular brand of 3d printer. Many brands specify the diameter of the spool of filament needed. If yours doesn't, look around for a similar model. If all else fails, call customer service and ask them what size spools they suggest.

How Do I Tell If My 3D Printer Is Ready To Print?

Your 3d printer should automatically stop once it reaches its maximum temperature. If it keeps going, something is wrong with the machine.

Make sure that your 3d printer is plugged in and turned on. Check the power cord to make sure it hasn't been damaged. Make sure that the filament is loaded correctly. Try unloading and reloading the cartridge.

How Do I Load My 3D Printer?

Load your 3d printer by inserting the end of the spool into the loading slot. Pull the tab until it clicks into place. Then insert the remaining portion of the spool into the feeder. Finally, push the button on top of the feeder to lock everything in place.

How Do I Unload My 3D Printer?

Unload your 3d printer by pulling the tab on the side of the feeder. Remove the rest of the spool by pushing the button on top of the feeder. Unplug the power cord and let the machine cool down.
