Great filament. It seems like the quality of some of the brans I use lately has gone down hill so I was looking for something new to try. This filament was great to print with. Zero issues. It was also the perfect color for the project I was working on.
Thanks so much Scott!
Quality PLA but Lackluster Color
As others have noted, the quality of the PLA is excellent and inline with Atomic's other filaments and the color is attractive while on the spool. However, as others have noted, when printed it is essentially clear. I was hoping on larger prints the sparkle effect would be more apparent, however even on larger prints its still not what I was hoping for in terms of color.
Great quality, disappointing color
My fiance is the one printing- he tried a few set ups, but I have no business attempting to communicate that stuff! Quality of product is not an issue, have ordered other colors before. But this color is disappointing, pretty much clear with a VERY faint opalescence. Spool is deceiving. Was hoping for something closer to the iridescent pearl, but in a blue hue. Probably won't use it for intended project, but won't go to waste at all. Still good product.
Sorry Erin, but good feedback for our community. We want to make sure the colors fit the need.
Good printing, not enough sparkle
I don't know if my spool just didn't get enough of the glitter but I tried printing at different layer heights and infill and the sparkle effect is really subtle. My advice - print at 0.2 layer height or greater and an infill that's more than 15% and nothing less or you won't see the effect. When you are under the right light and angle and you see the blue sparkle it is nice (reminds me of an opal), but it's very faint, and to see that effect is not easy even in direct sunlight. It printed great, up to Atomic Filaments standards, I had no problems at all. The model in the photo i attached was printed at 0.2 layer height with a 25% infill and 3 perimeters. I hope to see a Ver2 down the line with maybe bigger glitter specs, and maybe a UV Reactive version that glows blue.
