Hello,

I thought this is a good deal if you have an FDM printer and would like to try these cheap PLA/ABS filament. They were around $20 but I found out they made a steep price drop. Smilie

Anyone with any experience on these?

I picked up 5 based on the existing reviews. I can always try one and return them. Seems like a great price.

It only restricts the safe PLA, not the dangerous ABS. It's a California thing. Since PLA is made out of corn and is biodegradable, it's probably running into a California Agriculture department restriction. Just get the ABS instead.

Hmm, their ABS will ship to Los Angeles addresses but not PLA? Weird.

I've ordered plenty of PLA from other brands to ship here before without issue, so am dubious that it's running into agricultural barriers. And PLA originating from outside the US tends to be made from other sources than corn. Maybe it's just not available in a distribution center sufficiently-close to make it worth Amazon's while to get it here without added cost and they don't want to make the reason apparent?

Really cheap and decent reviews. I jumped on some PLA colors I wouldn't normally buy. Hopefully I can get my printer back up a running and start using this.

LOL. No. It's the PLA that restricted, not the ABS. If that was the issue, they would restrict the ABS. PLA is made from corn. It's foodsafe. In fact, for people worried about BPA in plastic bottles, one tip is to look for plastic labeled PLA.

It is cheap but not enough to stock up on large scale. Excelvan is normally $9.99 and also gets great reviews. Filament that sits around too long is bad filament.

I picked up 6 spools, thanks!

I'm new to 3D printing, and this will be nice to play with.

Thanks!

How long is to long? I bought 6 rolls probably will use them in the next 6-12 months. Wont open them until I do, also live in AZ so it's dry. Planning on some funky colors for xmas gifts vs the grey+black that I have been using to make most of my functional parts.

Be careful that cheap filaments have been known to cause pre mature wear and tear issues with the print nozzle poor printing, and some of these cheaper ones seem to off gas harmful VOC's in much higher quantities than the better reputable brands. For this reason I stick with the ~$20/1kg Hatchbox brand and haven't been happier. This is info I have gotten off of the Reddit forum. If someone that is super experienced with this could chime in and elaborate or negate my learnings would be much appreciated. I'm new to this and just got my first 3D printer 2 weeks ago and have been constantly on the Reddit forum.

Let's hope they come vacuum sealed. If not, you should break out the vacuum sealer and seal them. That should take care of the moisture problem. But that's not the only problem. PLA is organic. It's not one of those plastics that will be around for millions of years. It's compostable. So PLA biodegrades. It gets brittle. How long does that take? Who knows. Depends on the formulation. Also, we have no idea how old these spools already are.

Eh... IMO filament is pretty much filament these days. The days of people making and selling filament out of their garage are over. I will speculate that a few factories make filament and then rebrand them to anyone who is willing to pay. A lot of spools from a lot of different companies selling from $10-$50/KG look exactly the same except for the label from the filament to the spool to the packaging. I know a lot of people swear by Hatchbox. I have nothing against it. I just don't feel the need to pay that much for filament. It's like people paying more for premium gas because it's "better" when their car is built to run on regular.

Also, what VOCs are you thinking come off of PLA? ABS is another story and regardless of brand, you need to have good ventilation before printing that.
