If you want to add a bit of sparkle to your 3D prints, then come and check out the Ziro PLA Blue Diamond 3D printer PLA filament! I’m sure I have seen filament like this before and I have! I have reviewed Eryone Sparkly Blue filament before, which is very much like this. However, is the Ziro PLA Blue Diamond filament any good? Read on to find out more.
Ziro Filament Packaging
Purchased via Amazon, the Ziro PLA Blue Diamond filament came in the usual Amazon box, but inside it has its own decorative box. Boasting QR codes for its social media channels on the outside. The usual printing temps, weight and description. Also included was what they call a bone bag for storing your filament in. Oooh, shiny! The filament was vacuum sealed along with 2 desiccant sachets, and the winding of the filament is OK.
Ziro PLA Blue Diamond 3D Prints
In this section I have added links on where to find all the STL files that have been used in this review.
The Witcher 3 Wall plaque
My first print to use with the Ziro PLA Blue diamond filament is a Witcher 3 wall plaque which can be found on MyMiniFactory. This will surely look great printed in this filament! I used my CR10 Mini for this print and used the following settings:
- Nozzle Temp: 205°C
- Bed Temp: 60°C
- Layer Height: 0.2mm
- Infill: 12%
Well, despite my slight layer shift after knocking the printer, this printed extremely well, and it looks great! It has that sparkle to it. It looks great on my wall. The supports for this were easy to remove and hadn’t bonded like glue. Most likely because of my slicer settings, however, it shows the filament is forgiving! Let’s see what else this can do.
My next print is a diamond vase, again found on MyMiniFactory. Being a diamond pattern, it’s only fitting I try this! I printed this with the same settings above, albeit using vase mode and scaling the model up to 250%. This print looks gorgeous! Especially when you catch it in the right light, you can see the additives that makes it want to sparkle! The adhesion was great between the layers, so no cracks or splits, which is a bonus.
Diamond Zombie Hunter Head
I just love the Zombie Hunter head model, so I gave that a whirl too! It looks fantastic with the sparkle from the blue filament. You can find this STL file on Thingiverse by Sculptor
Where to buy Ziro PLA Blue Diamond
We can buy Ziro PLA Blue Diamond 3D printer filament via Amazon at a reasonable price of £21.99 at the time of posting this review. Other colours are also available, of which I will try these too! If you want to learn more about Ziro, then go over and check out their site! In addition, go over to their Facebook page. There might be exclusive discounts!
This is a great-looking filament, and it prints really well! The added sparkle really makes it stand out and, as a result, is perfect for ornamental pieces. I do hope they introduce more colours as part of Ziro’s Diamond series. Compared to the Eryone Sparkly Blue I had reviewed prior to me, this seems to have more of a sparkle to it. The spool on the filament is of the higher quality side so is rigid all round and it even has their name embossed around the centre hole. I would definitely use this filament again as it prints nicely and is a good price point compared to other brands!
