Velleman PLA

Recommended Posts

I just started printing with a Velleman branded PLA. I do not think this is a really good one. For a PLA, it smells foul and it just literally cause me a headache... like 6inches nail stuck to my head kind of reaction.

 

Stopped and switched with the Rigid Ink ones and currently opening all aerating the whole place to rid of the smell.

Have you tried Colorfabb? I also enjoy the Filamentum materials as they have the Extrafill series. Do not ask me about smell as I have a rather lousy sense of smell, but the prints are very nice and I hear the smell is nothing to consider.

 

And, yeah, anything that does that to your head (when PLA is not supposed to have a smell) is really not good.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
