What’s in this pack?
This 25 strand pack comes with five strands of each colour at 254mm (10 inch) long. For every inch of filament strand, the 3Doodler can produce up to 10 inches of doodle. The 3Doodler is compatible with both ABS and PLA filaments.
PLA is a bio-degradable made from renewable sources like sugar. The plastic has a lower melting point than alternatives and when heated it gives off a semi-sweet smell. Available in a variety of fun colours, PLA comes in glossy, metallic, translucent and glow in the dark variants for additional effects. PLA easily sticks to a variety of surfaces including glass, metal and acrylic. It is also much better for drawing acute angles.
There are other types of filament available too. If you’re looking to use or store your doodle in warmer areas, please note that the alternative ABS has a reduced chance of warping at higher temperatures. ABS can also give more flexibility to a doodle.
For a bendable creation, FLEXY is the filament for you. With its stretchable properties, you can make a design that you can squeeze, stretch, twist and bend. This is especially useful if you want to attach your doodle to fabric.
Storing your filament when not in use
Get the most out of your filament by storing it in a dry and dust-free environment. To get the best quality doodle every time, store your filament in a sealed container or bag with an added sachet of silica gel – as moisture can create problems with printing and reduce the lifespan of the filament. It’s easy to reuse the filament strands – just trim off the part-melted end for a better feed and get start creating all over again.
