For that price it'll certainly be interesting to know if it's any good.  ~~

Filament has arrived looks good will test some later, also got a free sample of gold PLA and some popping candy  :rofl:

Is it right that the reel sides are cardboard?  A material that absorbs and holds damp?

Yea I never thought of that bugger its seems quite nice to  :rolleyes:
on the other hand does PLA suffer that much with moisture and if stored correctly would it be a real problem  :shrug:

Though it doesn't suffer as notably as abs or succumb to moisture related issues as quickly as abs and petg it s still susceptible.
However unlike the other two that absorb the water then display symptom in the form of bubbling and popping during use Pla goes the other way and takes on a brittle like condition to a point were it'll snap incredibly easy even as its coming off the roll, like petg though a quick warming in the oven or a dehumidifier can often rescue it.
In short having it on a cardboard roll is probably not a good idea but then again that's pretty much a given on any of the three mentioned filaments.
You should be fine aslong  as you keep the rolls in a relatively well sealed water free environment

In the past I used a brand that was on cardboard spools, never was a issue and I don't keep PLA sealed.

Would use it now but the price went through the roof and couple of years ago so made the switch.

I know this is tempting fate, but my two printers are located close to three fish tanks with high turnover filtration, ones that need fairly regular "top up" due to evaporation. I have not noticed any adverse reaction to this. While most reels are kept in their plastic bags, a few have "lost" theirs, a couple being given to me "bare" with known open reel previous storage.

I hasten to add these are mostly PLA, though I do have currently seven reels of PETG, and not noticed any difference in performance. I have not as yet needed or trialled ABS.

While its tempting to say this result is due to a "Prusa" level of performance, don't forget the simple little Fab II Mini that still gets used regularly and usually has a bare reel sitting on it "unprotected".

I have tried three times now to buy a box for "heat box" use, but not located the size I want. Local sellers list one, but out of stock for ages, I guess other "printers" have got in before me!!

I'm tending to buy various makes sold by HobbyKing, only dragged away when forced by HK not having shades needed or being OOS in UK warehouse.  The ONLY reel that has given me any difficulty (though I still use it) is a more expensive than most brought Polymaker PolyPlus PLA in grey that is rather rigid, matt and "grainy".

I'll certainly look at this range, also the Amazon UK source for Prusa filament.

Ok I'm having problems with this filament temp wise it has to be much hotter than normal and it gets so far and the extruder starts to skip not good 4 failed prints in a row avoid buying this stuff, I was really hoping it would be good  :rolleyes:

Oh Dear, thanks for the heads up.

Is it worth sending some to a couple of us to confirm no way??

Should they be told??

I might email them but ive stuck some HK white on and its running perfectly it was £12.99 so not a lot wasted, and maybe its just my direct drive extruders dont have enough tolerance for it although ive never had this before with any filament, I think its over size and jamming the extruder i can hear it clicking when it happens, it doesnt look very white at side of the HK stuff either  :shrug:
It may well work ok on s sprung loaded extruder  :shrug:

 

Its a shame I would of been a regular buyer  :thumbdown:

That's a shame.  Was really hoping it would be good stuff.  Their website bangs on about every roll having a tolerance of no more than 0.06mm iirc which shouldn't cause any feeding issues.  Maybe worth telling them of your issues?  Could be grounds for some free replacement reels or a refund?
