Good (Best) PLA filament

Post by Raleonh »

Help!!!
Where can I buy a good PLA filament?
I'm from Portugal and is expensive to buy the filament from Felix.
I've tested the filament from BQ and can not obtain good results with it!

Can someone help me?
Thank you!

I have tested 16 different filaments...oddly enough the "cheap" Chinese filament I buy from eBay here in the States worked the best for me. Great adhesion to the bed, cleanest perimeter lines. But BuMat was a close second on the list really only because of price. It is sold through Amazon; also available for shipping with Amazon Global.

By the way this is how I found the filament - there was a Kickstarter program that got a lot of attention here in the States (think strong masculine guy makes 3D printed armor for Barbie dolls). Here are some pictures of this doll armor printed with Bumat filament:

I'm using FormFutura's Easyfil PLA. I've tested a bunch of PLA and this is by far the best. The chinese filament feeds and prints nicely but it is very rigid because it's just normal PLA. The easyfil has more flex and for me is similar to ABS.
