CoLiDo have delivered some of the most exciting 3D printing solutions available today and their range of PLA and ABS filament is nothing short of perfection.
The latest range of PLA and ABS filament was developed alongside US experts with CoLiDo noting "the filament is the key element to precision output". Using high quality, consistent diameter tolerance filament helps reduce some of the issues with 3D printing such as nozzle clogging or running material etc. The filament also meets REACH standards, being free from harmful or hazardous materials.
PLA filament has a huge range of vibrant colors and opacity for that perfect look, whether it is artistic or utilitarian, in short PLA is great material for 3D printing. PLA can be printed without the use of a heat bead, and can stick to glass or a PCB plate with a binder such as hairspray or white glue for a curl free print.
3D printing is a fun and exciting hobby with a wide range of applications from prototyping parts to making toys for the kids. Selecting the right filament for your application is important to ensuring high quality results.
• Lower melting point for easier printing
• Free from harmful or hazardous materials
• Lower shrinkage rate
• High rigidity with minimal flex
• Produces higher quality prints
Filament Material: PLA
Filament Diameter: 1.75mm
Note: PLA is considered stronger than ABS but is more susceptible to cracking when flexing, or on impact or torsional loads so the mechanical needs of the print project has to be evaluated.
I really love this filament! Worked perfectly from the first few centimeters down to the last meter. Printed it at 195°C extruder and 50°C bed. No warping, no stringing, very consistent print! Also the color is pretty nice( nice contrast to the esun orange ABS). I didn´t have a single failed print from this role. Tried the hobbyking PLA afterwards, that didn´t work as smoothly and i had a lot of stringing. So I will stick with the colido filament as it just works fine for me.
