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.
This is by far my favourite filament. Prints really well with standard PLA settings, but needs a little extra retraction.
Looks and feels like wood, is sandable (by hand) is quite resistant to abuse. I have made a couple of headphones out of this material and they have stood up to the use and abuse you give your headphones.
Love this material.Good Filament. I was not confident when I ordered it, but it's a good suprice.
The filament is easy to print on my ultimaker 2 (1.75 bowden feeder, 205°C nozzle and 50°C Bed) and It didn't clog the nozzle (even after a 4h print). the appearance is really cool and look like wood. So all good for this filament.Very nice wood filament, smells like wood while printing, feels like wood, could be edit like wood and very fast delevering like wo... euh it's just perfect. It tooks 2 days deliver time to the Netherlands, well done Hobbyking.
