|07. March 2013||ABS||Round||1.75mm||1.65mm with STD 0.05 min 1.53 max 1.73||20kg||18.627kg||$16.77/kg||-||Incl. in cost||-||Material had lots of bubbles that combined with the small diameter made the material unprintable. When I complained about the diameter, the sales guy "John" claimed that despite the PO, they "shipped me 1.65 mm because 1.65 is better for printing." They will lie to you about everything. Not a reputable supplier.
Update: After I posted the review, they were nice enough to send another roll for testing. This roll had similar measurements as the first. 1.64 mm +/- 0.5 mm. If your printer takes 1.65 mm nominal, it may work for you. Using a makergear, the filament is too thin to feed. Perhaps if you have something that can deal with the smaller diameter and the air bubbles, it will work for you. -Pinkyxjmmb.
They had already advanced the quality, no bubbles at 235degree, and the diameter difference is about +/-0.06mm which works well for my printer. I have to say that they have a excellent package, vaccum packed in plastic bag with desiccant and have small box for each spool. I will continue to buy from Qingdao TSD Plastic. The price is 19usd/kg and quantity is 25kg. -Rak.
|15 December 2015||ABS / PLA / HIPS||Round||1.75mm / 3mm||1.72mm / 2.95mm (+/- 0.2mm)||30kg||$18/kg||17$/kg||-||Incl. in cost||-||We have been ordering material from TSD plastic since 2006 mainly because the price was very competitive. At the beginning the quality of the filament was poor, but in the last years it became one of the best filaments I have tried. It is true that there we found bubbles in some of the spools, but John was nice enough to send extra rolls with no bubbles at no extra cost.
The packaging became excellent, with borosilicate bags inside the spools and vacuum packed bags inside a cardboard box. I have to say that the white plastic from TSD is simply the best white filament I have tried until now. -Rak.
