My first printer filament. Initially gave very poor prints but this was due more to my inexperience of the hardware and software setups of my Geeetech Prusa i3 Acrylic printer.
I notice that several users have given poor reviews as the filament can come off the reel and tangle during printing. I get the same thing happening with my garden hose and mains cable extension reel. Not the fault of the filament, hose or cable in my opinion, just the way it's unwound.

I made up a guide using a wire coat hanger, tarpaulin eyelets and some gardening wire to ensure it always feeds from the middle of the reel. No tangle problems! The weird reel holder came with the printer.

Very happy so far.

I bought the Dark Gray colour. At first I was having a really hard time getting it to print. Many many many failed attempts. It didn't print with any of my usual PLA configuration. I was suspicious that it wasn't PLA at all so I did a few tests. I used acetone and it didn't melt or break down as I would expect from ABS which was a good sign. I also tried burning a sample with a lighter. It for sure does't smell like PLA so who knows.

Any way for those of you who are having trouble I'm now getting near perfect results.

The main settings I changed in Cura:
- I first selected draft settings in Cura and created a copy so I could save the configuration for later use.
- Layer height: 0.2
- Wall Thickness: 0.8
- Top and Bottom Thickness: 0.8
- Infill: 25 (Personal preference)
- Printing Temp: 250c - This is important as for some reason this filament has a higher melting point
- Build Plate Temp: 50c
- Diameter: 1.75mm
- Flow: 90% - This is important as my nozzle was getting clogged almost every print
- Enable Retraction: True
- Retraction Distance: 3mm - This is just as important as the Flow setting
- Print Speed: 60mm/s
- Travel Speed: 120mm/s

Everything else is default.

The most important parts are the Printing Temp, Flow, and Retraction Distance.
Some of the settings are hidden so you need to press the gear icon next to the section name and then tick the corresponding option to reveal it. If in doubt google how to reveal these settings and you should be fine.

Happy printing!!!!

All in all after the stress of figuring out these settings I'm am very pleased with the product.

I'd been using RigidInk filament for a couple of months, but saw this suggested on My Amazon. To say it's that much cheaper than RigidInk, I was really pleased with the prints I got with this filament. I'm running a hacked Chinese Prusa I3 clone with a bowden and E3D head and this stuff prints like a dream at 205 degrees on my rig. It never tangles, the filament diameter is very consistent, the colour is consistent too, and layer bonding is perfect, even for structural parts with high infill. I've got white, grey, black, orange and green and they all behave exactly the same - reliable, predictable and great bed adhesion at 50 degrees with a PVA wash on the bed (to the point where I have to chisel off parts with large bed contact area). There are so many different PLA makers at the moment, and I'd put Prima pretty close to the top of the pile for quality and consistency, even compared of more expensive filament.

Great material / no problems so far / used 45-50 degrees Celsius for bed & 195-210 for the filament with out any problem .....the spool is steel at the beginning ....we shell see how is performing close to the final meters

This is one of my favourite colours and quality I've ever used, don't be scared of so called "budget" filaments, this is my go to filament now.
Temps, 220' first layer, 200' thereafter, and on my CR-10, 50'bed.
Works every time.

This is the best filament I've ever printed with. Very forgiving and great quality. The dark grey looks like clay when printed!

Best results were at 195 degrees celsius, blue tape on aluminium plate and garnier fructis hairspray.

I am unable to get a decent print with this filament. Spent the best part of two days trying varying all the parameters that would make a difference. I don't give up easily. I have confined this to the bottom of my filament box. With the next delivery it will be put in the bin! If anyone knows how to get this to print please enlighten me. I am using a highly modified AM8 with a E3D V6 hotend (remote extruder)

The filament is great, very very strong colour, very dense strong parts result from it, and great bed adhesion. No issues with blockages or any tangles or anything like that. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because of the poor packaging. Let me elaborate. I've bought spools from a handful of brands. The best packaged so far was zero. They vacuum-pack the filament, and include a resealable bag (kinda like a ziploc bag, but without the zip) to store the filament in after you first open it. The sealed bag in combination with the silica gel they include will keep moisture out of the filament. Most other brands I tried (cctree, surreal, technologyoutlet) come in a sturdy vacuum-sealed plastic bag, so all I have to do is slice off the top of the bag neatly, and I can store the filament back in that bag after sealing the cut end with tape. This one (PrimaValue) came in a nice cardboard box, but the spool inside was only wrapped with a very thin heat-sealed plastic wrapping. Not vaccum packed, in fact the plastic was so thin and fragile that it had holes in places. This meant that by the time the spool was shipped to me, it had been absorbing moisture from the air for weeks. The fact that it still printed well despite that is testament to the high quality of their filament I suppose, but I've had to figure out how to protect it from further moisture by myself (since the thin plastic wrapping ripped immediately on taking out the spool).

Not used any other brand of PLA (except the sample that came with my printer), so I can't compare it to other brands really, however I've run into no issues with this. The dark grey I had seemed to over extrude a bit, so I had to reduce the flow, but to be honest I think that was more to do with a worn PTFE tube than the filament. Switched to an all metal hot end since then.

Would definitely recommend this PLA, especially for starting out as it's good value and not too expensive for the many many mistakes you're going to make as a beginner :)

Extruder: 0.3mm @ 210°C
Bed: 55°C
0.2mm first layer height

Filament provides consistent results but does require a slightly higher temperature than expected. Diameter is regular throughout and wound to the spool nicely. Experienced clogs at temperatures lower than 205°C with a 0.3mm nozzle. I have purchased a second spool, having had good results with the first.
