Making prints that are smooth black masterpieces by day and spooky green glowing galaxies by night – this new eSun eStars PLA Filament is the perfect catalyst to creative 3D prints we can’t wait to see Makers in our community go wild with. Halloween decorations, cosplay accessories, sparkling night lights, and more goodies will become wholly unique using this galaxy black glow in the dark 3D filament.
The luminous brightness of this filament is directly related to the intensity and duration spent under a light source. After a good bit of time in direct sunlight or high-density light, your prints will glow with a green starry night effect, but we have another sneaky trick you can use if you’re planning a romantic surprise. The glow effect is intensified best after using an ultraviolet light source which you can use to charge them up, ready to shock your guests with awe!
PLA filament is our personal favourite
It can be printed very easily and without warping – making it perfect for getting started!
PLA FILAMENT ADVANTAGES AND TIPS
The eSun eStars PLA Galaxy Black Glow in the Dark Filament is ideal for beginners looking to venture into using more exotic filaments provided you also equip a stronger nozzle to your printer for these more abrasive filaments. eSun PLA is widely popular for its easy utility, clean smooth finishes, and capability for more stable prints. Good adhesion and forgiving temperature gauge result in a higher success rate to bring your glorious prints to life!
However, we don’t recommend leaving your beautiful new models near extreme heat sources. PLA filament is made of polymer materials, including plastics and, in eSun’s case, extracted corn grain which makes it eco-friendly. But extreme heat will cause it to warp and bend, unlike ABS Filament which has a higher melting temperature.
That said, eSun’s eStars PLA Filament is compatible with most 3D printers and the Galaxy Black glow in the dark colour is the first of its kind to become available. Beginners and Experienced Makers alike can get excited to experiment and explore with it.
1. Luminous PLA is easy to grind nozzle and extruder gear, it is recommended to use steel nozzle or ruby nozzle, hardened steel extruder gear will be perfect , if the nozzle is clogging , replace the throat and nozzle.
2. The luminous effect is related to the intensity and time of light source. The longer the irradiation time, the better the luminous effect.
