Pxmalion PLA 3D filaments are available in 16 colors: black/ blue/ green/ purple/ red/ silver/ white/ yellow/ clear/ orange/ hot pink/ rosy brown/ bronze metal/ gold/ dark orchid/ skiny.
PLA is derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane and doesn't give off an evil smell when printing with it. As a result, PLA based 3D printer filaments are much more environmentally friendly than other plastic materials. It is safer regarding emissions in the home and classroom.
PLA doesn't contract so dramatically when cooling down, so you don't necessarily need a heated bed on your 3D printer. Outside of 3D printing, PLA plastic is often used in food containers, such as candy wrappers, and biodegradable medical implants, such as sutures.

Printer: Prusa i3 MK2S
Filament: Pxmalion Silver PLA
Nozzle Temp: 210
Bed Temp: 60-62c
Upon receiving this filament, It comes in extremely standard packaging. It did not look like they skimped on anything to lower prices. The spool was a normal spool, vacuum sealed, with silica beads. The vacuum seal was actually still vacuumed nice and tight. Was happy to see that!
After measuring about 10 locations of the filament throughout printing, I got an average filament size of 1.749mm, and the deviation at the largest and smallest points was within the .03mm tolerance they claimed in this listing. The color is a pretty nice silver. On the spool it looks like an average silver/light grey, but printed it does have a cool “velvety” look to it due to the layers looking a bit shiney. Color wise it is slightly lighter silver than the grey/silver color that prusa sends with their printers. About 1 or 2 shades lighter.
Overall I was very satisfied with the print quality of this filament. The tolerance range was pretty huge. I was able to print the same quality at 180 as I was at 210 (as shown in the pic of test pieces). Only at 180 did I see some light stringing from the filament not being heated enough. Even then it was pretty manageable. Even for people who might not have the most accurate 3d print temps, just stick it around 200c and your printer will print great, even if the deviation of your temperature is +-5%.
The only big difference I noticed is that this filament REALLY NEEDS A HEATED BED AT NO LOWER THAN 60c!!! I had my bed at 50c for my first handful of prints and I kept getting curled corners over and over. When I finally pushed it to 60, all the parts hung on to the bed great. So make sure you set your bed at 60 minimum. For you printers with not so great temps, stick it at 65 just in case.
Printed parts quality:
All my printed parts came out strong and solid. I did not get any bubbling, deformations, or any big issues. It seriously printed as well as the Prusa PLA included with the prusa i3 mk2s. Hard to compare even the prusa prices at 30 bucks per roll, plus 15-20 bucks shipping! This is a steal at these prices with just as good print quality. I printed several functional parts, such as hinged parts and gears. All have held up great since printing. I’m still using the box in the picture, and the gearbox in the picture is still turning great! It’s a very fun build actually. I’ve included the thingiverse thing number below for your references.
Great filament, at a great price. Prints just as good as the Prusa filament, although it needs a heated bed to be specifically set to 60c or higher. I’d personally recommend this brand and I will be purchasing a few of their other colors for further testing.
