Smooth finish and Great details
3D-prints with FilaCube PLA 2 filaments can have a smooth surface and great details. Our professional clients, like cosplay makers, love the smooth and matte finish of FilaCube PLA 2 filaments. FDM(fused deposition modeling)/FFF(Fused filament fabrication) printed parts from FilaCube PLA 2 filaments can save 3D printing professionals quite some time and effort for post-processing processes, such as sanding, priming and painting.

PLA 2 Prints can be Sanded!
Prints made from FilaCube PLA 2 filaments can tolerate sanding heat better than normal PLA. 3D printing professionals love PLA 2 filaments because great printed details from PLA 2 can save significant sanding and primer time!
The pictures demonstrate how a hero shield was printed with FilaCube PLA 2 filament and post-processed to a final cosplay. After the shied was 3D printed, it was sanded with 80 grit, 120 grit, and 180 grit sand paper, respectively. After the sanded shield was filler primed, it was wet sanded smooth up to 1200 grit starting with 220 grit sand paper. Next the shield was painted in a gloss black lacquer, masked and painted silver, and then sealed. Then nail polish was used to paint the back of the gem and the gem was attached to the shield.
PLA 2 Prints are Durable!
This picture shows a durability testing with a print. It was expected that the print would be completely crushed. After being run over repeatedly by a car of 3800 lbs, it's just got some of the sharp corners mushed and that's it. The model was printed in FilaCube PLA 2 filament, 10% infill, 2 walls, and 0.06 mm nozzle.
How to control diameter tolerance of 3D printer filament?At FilaCube, we monitor the diameter change of all newly extruded 3D printer filament in real-time using a non-contact high-speed laser micrometer. In the video, 1,75 mm white PLA (polylactic acid) filament is being produced. There is an alarm associated with the monitor. If the diameter goes beyond (over or under) the preset tolerance 0.03 mm, the alarm will go off. So that workers on the product line will know the issue and discard the roll. This is how we do quality control on the diameter tolerance.
FilaCube spool dimentsions
FilaCube provides four spool options - 1kg, 2kg, 3kg and 5kg for both 1.75mm and 2.85mm filaments.
