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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
