This Bilby3D PLA filament is clear. The optical clarity will depend on how well each strand of filament that is printed melts with the surrounding material. If the strands are not pushed together, the curves of the strands will bend light giving it a white appearance (same way that air bubles in water look white). We have had some success with annealing the printed part by placing in an oven at around 60-80 degrees for 5-10mins.
This filament has been extensively tested and works well with standard PLA settings.
PLA filament is easy to use due it not requiring a heated bed, low shrinkage and much safer to use due to the low and relatively innocuous emissions when heated.
We have tested this on over 10 different types of 1.75mm extruding machines with cold or heated beds such as Makerbots, FlashForge, Dremel, UPs, Printrbots and many more.
Diameter: 1.75mm (+/- 0.04mm)
Weight: Aprox. 1kg of filament, plus spool and box
Melting Point: 190-240 degC
Soften Point: TBA expected at 70-80 degrees
Build Surface: Cold bed on Blue tape or Buildtak
This Bilby3D ABS 1.75mm filament is transparent (not like glass, but definitely semi see through).
The amount of transparency you can achieve will depend on your temperature (slightly higher gives better transparency), your 3D Printer and other settings.
