HobbyKing 3D Printer Filament 1.75mm PLA 1KG Spool (Black)
HobbyKing have come out with a huge new range of 3D Printer Filaments at prices that will have you printing all day and all night.
The range covers PLA, ABS, Flexible, Color Changing, Luminous, Nylon, Polycarbonate, Acetal (POM), Metal Composite and even a water soluble filament for printing molds. So there is a filament for every project you have in mind. HobbyKing 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 subjected to flexing, impact or torsional loads so the mechanical needs of the print project need 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.

This filament prints well enough. Hobbyking's silver PLA is one of my favorite filaments, but this one doesn't quite rate that high in my opinion. I think the glossy black (with maybe a tiny hint of midnight blue) has a tendency to reveal any printing flaws instead of hiding them. If you are looking for a matte black PLA, this filament is not for you.I would buy this again and again. Please restockFor the money i didnt expect it to be as good as it is...
Printed on my original prusa i3 mk2, my prints come out really nice using this budget PLA, nice uniform layers and the colour is good. I'll definitely be ordering more.I did a couple of test prints.
This filaments diameter varies a lot! from 1.70mm to 1.79mm withing 200mm of length.
My other mid quality filament is 1.74mm-1.76mm.
- Hollow cube structure.
- 1 outer layer at 0.4mm nozel
- 1 bottom layer
- 100um layer height
- printed at 220degC no headed bed.
The outcome is not very uniform.
I also printed a structure I needed and the first layer has no full coverage due to the variance in diameter.
