In my continuing quest for unique, high quality PLA 3D printer filament, I was anxious to try the Tactink Clear PLA 1.75mm 3D Printer Filament. It’s a large, 1KG/2.2 lbs. roll.
As expected from Tactink, the Clear PLA comes professionally packaged in a shrinkwrapped casing complete with dry pack (desiccant) inside a cardboard box. You also get a second resealable storage bag for when you need to store any unused filament. My test printer is a Flux Delta+. Since the roll didn’t fit in the printer’s chamber, which really can only accommodate rolls half the size, I used a Creker 3D Printer Filament Spool Holder.
Using my digital calipers, I noted that the filament’s dimensional accuracy was to spec. My printer was able to handle the material without issue, and the final object print quality proved excellent, with a nice strong structure. The Clear proved to be translucent when printed thin and more crystalline when printed thick.
As usual, if you’re looking for good quality PLA, Tactink has a great solution with their Clear.
– Dimensionally accurate
– Translucent when printed thin and crystalline when printed thick
– Excellent material strength
– Large roll may not work with all 3D printers
Accurate dimensions, good optical properties, and reasonable pricing for a large roll of Clear PLA filament add up to an excellent purchase.
Thanks to Tactink for the review unit.
