Hi. Anyhow has tried this brand?

I bough 4 rolls of the colors I needed on 1.75mm and it's so horrible I'm going to return them. The filament needs easily +20C than the same print speeds on faber or colorfab, the roll it's horribly 'rolled', it's somehow dirty also. The filament unrolls like crap and the worse thing it's that the size goes from 1.84 to 1.68 on just 10-20cm and keeps changing all the time, it's the worst pla I ever used.

The colors are cute, but the quality sucks big time.

    Hi neotko,

      I have been using Eumakers 2.85mm PLA for some projects and I must say i am very satisfied. Inside de spool packaging I found silica gel bags and an hermetic plastic bag to better save the material from humidity. Concerning the tempertures, I have been using it between 210°C-215°C with good results. The Blue metallic PLA is very nice.

    Here are some of pics:

    That photos are quite ok, but the top layers don't seem to be full filled.

    I did sent back my 4 spools to Eumakers, they where very nice by phone and mail and they told me that they do check internally the filament up to 0.03, so it was weird. Anyhow they where very nice and they pay the send back of the material.

    For me, I never had the feeder skipping on my umo+ with 1.75mm. I use to print 60-70mm/s at 207-209C for 0.2 layers but with the roll of yellow and one yellow ocre sample they sent me, I had to pop the heat to 219-224 to be able to avoid the motor skipping. Also I could fell friction when feeding it manually, something I never have with Colorfabb, Faberdashery or Smartmaterials3d.

    I will give them another try someday, but for now I'm not sure...

    I changed it. At first (a year ago) was because I had a lot of filament but I'm quite happy with it because it needs lower temp, there's almost zero dripping, the retracts are smaller and it works quite nicely to me. The only messy part it's that I need to buy the coupler and heat break barrel on aliexpress and it was a mess until I found a reliable seller. Also I had to change the stock feeder with a IRobertI feeder with a mk7.
