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.

I can't decide if I should recommend this or not. It's priced right, and depending on what you are printing, works great. Printing "normal" items, I never had any issues. I ran into trouble when I started printing thin wall stuff, like a wing from a 3dprintlabs stearman airplane. When printing a single wall wing, I just simply couldn't make it work. I thought it was my printer, then I changed filament to a different brand and all the problems went away. So, if you aren't too demanding on your prints, and are printing large chunky items, this seems to work great. For super-precise prints, I would spend more money and get something different.I had some issues with this item, and was able to work it out. the filament seemed to be aged, or dried out. I could print with it just fine. I leave it for a few days and when I come back to print I have to re-thread the printer again. It tends to break at a resting time. I printed mock guns with it. cursed a couple of times. but the issues were taken care of. Easier than ABS.very good product for the price..the filament seems of excellent quality ', with my Prusa work at a temperature of 190 to extruder 70 for the bed
