Extremely unreliable printing material
Reviewed in the United States on May 22, 2020
I honestly have no idea what everyone else is talking about. I have now made 20 attempts with various setting combinations to get this stuff to reliably adhere to the bed and it has failed, in one way or another, every single time.
I do a lot of 3d printing, but I'm not a deep hobbyist. I'm not printing because it's fun (though it is sometimes), I'm printing because I need something to come off the bed. I get absolutely no pleasure out of tooling around to find the right temperatures and settings. I want to hit print, and come back in 4 hours and take the finished model off the bed. As such, I look for the lowest maintenance and highest reliability filament I can. I use an Ender 3 with a tempered glass bed that has an adhesion surface on it. I don't use glue sticks or additives or anything like that, because I'm not supposed to have to, and maybe that makes the difference here. But as far as I'm concerned, if the filament can't stick to the surface designed specifically for filament to stick to (and which every other filament has stuck to pretty much flawlessly), then it's just not good filament. So far this is the first filament I've used in which no combination of settings or temperatures seems to help anything at all. Even turning off the heated bed after the first layer, as some have suggested, doesn't appear to do anything of value. It's curling up at the edges by the 3rd layer always, and if it even gets that far, it's completely come loose or dislodged by the 6th layer.
I hate this stuff. Of the dozens of varieties I've tried, this is hands down the worst filament I've used. If you print for utility, and not for the fun of tinkering around, then don't buy this garbage. It's not worth the money or the time.
All that been said, I added a star because the spool has a gauge for how much is left on the roll and that is a clever idea. Not that it will matter, there's no way I'm even going to be able to print an entire spool of this stuff. It's literally worthless.
