eSun PLA+ 2.85 in 1kg Clear Spool
eSun's is employing a new PLA+ formula derived from their standard PLA line. This affordable filament has good consistency, rigidity and great surface finish. It will work natively with your Ultimaker with the stock PLA settings. No additional customization is needed. We found this material to be better than our previous generic filament in both consistency between batches and it's bright vibrant colours previously limited for our generic brand.
eSun PLA Plus comes in 1kg spools so you have more material per spool vs. OEM 750gr spools but due to it's size, a larger spool holder is recommended for your Ultimaker 2+. It will fit the 2nd postion on the Ultimaker 3 Native spool holder.

PLA is the most common and popular 3D printing material. It has a low melting point which means longer life of your printer components, minimal warping, retains good detail in corners and is very easy to use. If you don't have any special mechanical or chemical requirements, PLA is your go-to choice of material.
Since Ultimaker uses an open filament system, it is not mandatory to use OEM filament. As such, Shop3D wants to carry a nice selection of filaments at different price ranges to suit all users. Of course the durability of your printer is paramount so this is why it has taken us so long to test a whole array of suppliers to find one that will produce a quality filament for an economical price.

Shop3D.ca product review notes:
We have tested it thoroughly in our Ultimaker 2's and 2+'s. It works with your standard PLA presets. (210 C nozzle, 60 C bed temperature) The print quality is about 90% - 95% as good as OEM filament, so it is appropriate choice for most purposes. It is a low cost alternative to the OEM and premium filaments without sacrificing dimensional print quality.
Our testing has shown that it premium filaments are recommended for use with the Ultimaker 3 Printers, we recommend using OEM or Innofil3D's PLA for best results and reliability.
