• High quality black coloured PLA 3D printer filament
• 1.75mm diameter filament for the da Vinci Junior 3D printer
• PLA is a biodegradable plastic which does not require a heated plate and has a glossy finish
• 600g/200 m of filament
• Electronic chip compatible with the da Vinci Junior 3D printer to keep track of the amount left on your reelCan I use this filament with my 3D printer?
This 1.75mm printer filament is designed for the da Vinci Junior. The filament could also be used on most printers that use 1.75mm PLA filament and can support a reel with a spool hole of 50mm and a diameter of 165mm. The reel comes with a chip that is compatible with the da Vinci Junior only this reel is not compatible with the other da Vinci series printers.
Why use this filament?
Keep on printing with the black coloured filament, the 600g reel is perfect for medium to large sized projects.
PLA is a biodegradable plastic with a lower melting point than ABS and does not require a heated bed. As it is derived from sugar it gives of a semi-sweet smell as it prints. PLA can give better acute angles and has stronger binding between layers.
The alternative ABS has a higher melting point so is better for use at higher temperatures. ABS however requires a heated bed and is not compatible with the da Vinci Junior 3D printer.
Check your printer for its filament compatibilities
Storing my filament when not in use
All filaments work better when they are stored in a dry and dust free environment as moisture can create problems with printing and reduce the lifespan of the filament. To protect your filament it is best to store it in a sealed container or bag with an added sachet of silica gel to ensure when you come to use, or reuse it, you’ll have the best quality print every time.
Always know how much filament you have left
The da Vinci Junior 3D printer filament has a chip included that contains information on filament type, colour and how much is left that can be read by the printer. Start a print safe in the knowledge that you know exactly how much filament you have. The chip is only compatible with the da Vinci Junior.
