Upon inspection, I noticed a considerable amount of plastic encasing the filament which, in my professional opinion, appears excessive. While it is commendable that the product includes 850 grams of filament, the spool alone weighs almost 300 grams, resulting in a potentially negative impact on both cost and the environment. As 3D printing requires significant amounts of filament, reducing plastic waste should be a top priority and an excellent opportunity for improvement.
I suggest that Fiberlogy remove the outer covers of the spool, each weighing 66 grams, to minimize unnecessary waste. My second concern is the lack of plastic symbols on the spool, making it challenging to identify the material type. Additionally, the absence of labels specifying the filament’s name, type, and temperature settings leaves room for confusion during printing. Lastly, more holes on the sides of the filament holder would be beneficial to keep the filament wound correctly.
Having thought about it, I have wondered what is the reason why Fiberlogy put 2 outer covers on the product:
- Is to cater for small or large spool holders?
- Is it for the stylish looks?
- Or they just don’t care about the environment?
I think Fiberlogy’s aim is to cater for the demands of the two sizes of spool holders. However, I do believe that, when ordering the filament, you can choose whether or not you want outer covers.
I am thrilled to report that the Satin PLA filament from Fiberlogy exceeded my expectations with exceptional 3D print quality. The reasonable price point is a fair value considering the impressive results. I appreciate Fiberlogy’s investment in a higher quality plastic spool for their filament, as it contributes to a more professional and seamless printing experience overall. Although the cost may be a bit more than other options, the final product is well worth the investment. The Satin PLA filament produces beautiful, high-quality prints that are perfect for a variety of applications. From functional to decorative models, Fiberlogy has proven to be a reliable and top-tier choice in the filament market. Without a doubt, I highly recommend Fiberlogy Fiber Satin to any 3D printing enthusiast looking to take their prints to the next level.
Featured 3D Prints
The Groover Vase
It is my pleasure to present to you the “featured image,” the Groover vase, which is a product manufactured from the entire Fiberlogy Satin PLA filament range. To create the vase’s center part, I chose the Fiber Satin Black filament to work with. I used Fiberlogy Fiber Satin PLA 3D printer filament to produce the strips. The result of using the Satin Black for the center part was to break up all the vibrant colors, creating a more noticeable contrast between them. You can buy the 3D printable STL file Groover Vase on My Mini Factory. This designer Clocksprings offers several variations of styles.
Pink PLA Filament Elf Archer 3D Model
Elfie was a project made by the designer for a past Artstation challenge, who seemed like an excellent test of the new Form 2. The height of the 3D model should be approximately 6cm. I must admit that the designer has added some very nice details here, and it prints very well without any supports.
