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.
made some very nice surface finish models with this. Prints fab at 215C on a CR10 with E3Dv6 and brass nozzle (0.4) also worked on volcano 0.8 nozzle at 220C.
For fab finish keep outer perimeter speed below 30mm/s and you are set.
Recommended (esp the 0.5kg spools as they contain a HUGE sacket with drying crystals inside the spool center hole)This filament is way more easy to print than the esun white PLA. On my ultimaker 2 the layers are very regular and with almost no default.
My setting are 210°C for nozzle and 50°C for the bed.
Nice "white" white, prints well on my Fab Mini
