Got my biofila samples through so thought i would test the Silk first as we have a Linen thread already.

The print is very very smooth and you can not see the layers but it does not look nothing like the shiny surface as per the photo on there http://www.two-bears.eu/Startseite_E/products/biofila_silk.html only real difference in there settings was they used layers of .25 not sure if this would make that much difference but will try latter to see.

Temp: 175

Speed: 40

Layer: 1.5

Retraction on

Bed Temp: 60

    I had very different results from super shiny to dull. Unfurtunately, i didn't note the settings. I remember that the nice print was with a larger nozzle ( 0,6 or 0,8 ) and 0,15 mm layer height. No idea about speed and temperature. I only did 2 more prints with 0,4 nozzle and 0,1 mm layerheight, which both didn't turn out so nice.

    I have used 0,4 nozzle and like it, it looks and feels silky. The temperature is very sensitive how silky it becomes, and you can use temp to control its surface.
