"Lipstick Red" 1.75mm PLA Filament (2.2lb)
This is a 2.2lb (1kg) roll of 1.75mm (standard) diameter PLA.
We recommend a 220-225 celsius extrusion temp for this particular type of filament. Your machine may vary; consider printing a temperature tower (thingiverse.com) for the best extrusion temperature for your printer.
We sell products that we have personal experience with, and this particular brand of filament is purchased from Zyltech in Texas, and we used it through thousands of hours of printing during the height of the pandemic in 2020 to print face shields. Please Note: many print quality issues are not necessarily caused by the filament, but can instead be fixed by adjusting slicer settings or making minor tweaks to a a printer's mechanical parts. Please consider taking our basic 3d printing class for more information.
We are a nonprofit, mission-driven organization, so we make no secret of our pricing. We bought this in bulk so that we could get a cheaper price, marked it up a little, and we make a few dollars to put toward our mission of educating and empowering the public to harness manufacturing technology. Our goal is to foster a maker economy in Middleboro and the surrounding region, and we hope you'll find this price competitive with other filament sales online.
