HobbyKing is excited to be carrying the full range of the ESUN brand of 3D printing filament. ESUN is recognised as one of the world's leading and most innovative manufacturers for 3D additive printing.
The PLA, ABS, Flexible, Luminous and many other types of materials are perfect for whatever application you have in mind. ESUN has established their brand recognition through their quality products and consistency, the filaments have a stable melting point, good round shape and most importantly a 0.05mm uniform diameter tolerance for a consistent flow rate.
PLA has a lower melting point and prints easier than other materials. One of the most important features is that PLA is non-toxic, and even has a sweet smell when printing. PLA has a low shrinkage rate and it is very rigid with minimal flex. This material can print extremely high resolution models and is perfect for a wide range of uses. PLA is considered stronger than ABS but is more susceptible to cracking when flexing, impact or torsional loads so the mechanical needs of the print project has to be evaluated.
PLA has a huge range of vibrant colors and opacity for that perfect look whether it is artistic or utilitarian, in short a 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 uses from prototyping parts to making toys for the kids. Picking the right filament for your application is very important. Please visit the ESUN web site for more information as well as the recommended settings for your printer.

An aboslute disaster !
First of all, it is not silver, more of a translucent grey
And it prints terrible with my Geeetech MK8 extruder
Terrible consistency, clogs nozzle very easily, very hard to extude
I tried printing a few things with it, my nozzle clogged every single time
A correct buy if you have a very good extruderJust tested, but it same color in ABS looks and prints much better.This is ok filament. It is not a very shiny silver with medium grey color. It does not produce parts as strong as some of the other esun i have tried. It seems as though layer adhesion is not great. Alot of my parts break between layers (i tried many temps) with the silver. For the price its ok.Good quality and works well in the mini fabrikator at 190 degC
