Amazon has Inland PLA filament for 13.99 in black or white. Retails for $14.pp at microcenter or regular amazon price is $17.99 for those of us without that shangri-la of nerd retail in our area.

I have heard inland is the same company as eSun, and Toymaker, but I can't readily verify.

I bought the white and can't get it to adhere to the bed. And it is very stringy and sticks to itself not the bed. Any advice would be appreciated. I have tried masking tape, glue stick, and alcohol.

I've bought several spools of Inland PLA and haven't had any issues with them except for the white. I've heard that white is just a difficult color to print with. It's been a while since I used it, but if I recall correctly I needed to slow things down to about 70-80% the speed I normally print at. That made the biggest difference, although I also tweaked the temperature as well. Unfortunately, I can't remember if I went higher or lower than my normal temps for PLA, so you may need to do some experimenting.

For bed adhesion, try some glue stick. I normally don't have to use anything for adhesion with PLA, but I remember using my stick of purple Elmer's glue to help with the white PLA.

I did get it the white working, it required Aqua Net hair spray to get the first layer to stick to the bed. I appreciate the reply!
