PolyMax Black PLA User Instructions PolyMax PLA 3D printing filament is compatible with most desktop FDM printers. It shares the same printing quality and stability as PolyPlus PLA, and can be used under identical conditions. PolyMax PLA exhibits excellent mechanical properties. The impact strength of parts printed using PolyMax PLA is 8-9 times that of regular PLA-printed parts and 20% higher than ABS-printed parts It is an ideal replacement for ABS. Partial list of PolyMax PLA compatible printers (all printers in the list have been thoroughly tested): Altair Standard Altair Pro MakerBot Replicator 2 MakerBot Replicator 2X (can be used reliably for dual-extruder printing) Ultimaker and similar printers PP3DP UP series printers RepRap series printers MakerGear M2 The heart-shaped filament clip is provided to prevent the unraveling of the filament when it is not being used. Remove the clip from the spool before loading the filament on your printer. Store unused PolyMax PLA filament in the provided resealable bag with the desiccant pack to prevent moisture absorption. Spool is .75kg (1.6 lbs)

Way to go Polymaker!!
ABS parts could be as strong, but in practice getting the print conditions just right doesn't always happen, so the part ends up weak. This material is super easy to print. We experience no part deformation due to shrinkage and excellent layer to layer adhesion.
The rigidity of this material is between PLA and ABS, and much more rigid than the Taulman 910 or any other Nylon. We are printing this material with a MakerGear M2 without an enclosure. We do have a heated enclosure for the printer which we use when use materials that benefit from a heated chamber, like ABS.
Our go-to materials are now Polymax PLA if we need rigidity & strength, or Taulman 910 Nylon when we need strength, must tolerate elevated temperatures, and can sacrifice rigidity.
I recommend reading this review. Google search this: "Marketed as “premium”, “pro” or “smart”, are improved PLA and ABS filaments truly better?". We tested a few materials from this review, and it's conclusions are spot-on.
My print bed came with a BuildTak like surface. This filament sticks super good to that. A little too good at times so I'm experimenting with first layer height to see if I can find a sweet spot of good enough but not too much.
The filament is advertised as being stronger than regular PLA, and I would say for the most part that is true. However, what I like about PLA is that it creates crisp solid rigid parts. This filament produces parts with a little give (i.e. flexibility).. Now that could be a good things or a bad thing depending on your application. I printed a Raspberry Pi case and the give was nice because I could spread it a bit to get the board inside and have it snap back tight and not really need any screws to hold things together.
I also created something with threads printed at 100 microns. Wow, those threads came out strong and fit nicely, with no support material during printing. I have not done any hard bridging with this but for some of the small parts it did not have trouble bridging gaps of a couple centimeters.
All in all its a great filament, I knocked it one star (I wanted to knock only half star but doesn't seem like that is an option) because of the unexpected flexibility. I was actually wanting something very very stiff which is what I'm used to with PLA. Actually my favorite filament for stiffness and printability is PtrotoPasta Coffee filament, but they don't have anything in black so I gave this one a try.
Have fun printing.
