,Recently I had the opportunity to test a 1KG spool of Eryone White PLA 1.75mm filament in “White”. Eryone sent this to me with the intention of letting them know my honest opinion.
The manufacturing company of the filament is Eryone. Who we are all hearing about in the 3D printing world, because of the successful launch of the Eryone Resumer 3D. which was initially funded on Kickstarter. If you are interested make sure you have a look into the company and their products.
I received the package the next day. After I received it, I found the spool was vacuum packed with a silica gel sachet. These two things helped ensure that the filament stayed dry during storage and transit. This is a common approach for most PLA manufacturers. The spool Eryone provide with this 1KG of filament is a good size with no cut outs on the outer perimeter, and for this reason it rolls nice and freely on my bearing spool holder. I have had issues in the past with certain spools where there are recessed parts on the outer perimeter of the spool holder. With this spool of Eryone White PLA, I will not be having this issue with their filament.
The Finer Details
I measured the tolerances of Eryone White PLA with a vernier at several different stages. The majority of the spool was within the stated tolerances, although towards end of the reel I notice a small variation in the stated tolerances and measured >> 0.05.
As I do with most PLA that I have not printed with before, I started off with a small test print which was a Cali Cat. I was impressed with the initial results of the print. None of the common issues, such as stringing or blocked nozzles, occured. Which is always a possibility when using a different PLA provider.
This Eryone White PLA prints comparable to other more expensive PLA’s that I have printed with in the past. I made no changes to my PLA profile on S3D. Then I moved onto a 5 hour print because I was happy with the initial results from my test print.
Eryone White PLA Test
Now lets take a look at the filament in action. As you can see, the layer lines are barely visible in the pictures down below. The Eryone White filament adhered to my Creality borosilicate glass build plate with no problems.
The Eryone White PLA was tested using a 0.4 nozzle and 0.2 layer height. I was very happy with the outcome of my 5 hour print for a home automation project. Most importantly, because it only took about 4 hours to print in total. I am very happy with the final print, and I had no problems using the Eryone White PLA Filament.
After that, I decided to print this particular design that is up on thingiverse. It fits over a standard UK wall plate, and it is designed to hold a single hue holder. It is a fairly frustrating print because the majority of the print is supports for the recessed section of the wall plate.
