Tricky to dial in, but I’m no expert. Works great for my needs. Water-based joint compound sticks very well, saving me lots of time in non-toxic post processing.
I received a spool of this as a gift, and I absolutely love it. It does ooze a bit, and it does leave behind more strings than other filaments I have used, but it's a great product. The matte texture hides layer lines really well too. Just be sure follow the recommended print settings and don't hesitate to reach out to their support for help. I had a lot of trouble with this filament initially, but after talking to support we figured out it was an issue with my hotend. I ended up replacing it and now my printer is working better than ever! Solid Filament from a solid company.
I had first bought the sampler, calibrated the printer (extruder flow and filament width - which btw, was bang-on at 1.75 with 5 measurements), and printed a few Proto Gnomes. They were fabulous. The matte texture of pieces were striking. My sample tests were success! But, for my upcoming projects I needed full roll. With the fresh full roll I a over 15 hours on my Prusa MK3 (temp 215c first layer, 220c afterwards, .15 layer height). The prints completed with no issues. While I did get the aforementioned stringiness they really are easy clean in post. Either just scraping them off or (I've heard) a heat gun will do, as well. This Matte Blue filament has become my favorite. I can't wait to order the red and green Mattes. And am looking forward to the copper metal composites!
Material worked great —annealing really helped with temp stability of pieces.
I love the Matte texture! It almost has a wood like feel. It also hides printing lines. The vertical layers are almost invisible. Lastly, the color is a deep, bright color. I can also say, no odors when printing. This is much better than the other matte filament I have tried. I have all of the colors. It is easy to use. My bed is unheated and this is not a problem.
