Within the 3D Printing industry, there are a few brands that have proven their capabilities with fantastic 3D Printers and filament. One such brand is Wanhao, who came out the widely popular Duplicator Series of printers, and now we are excited to bring you their range of 3D Printing Filament as well.

These spools of 1.75mm Wanhao PLA Filament come in a range of different colours, and are stocked as a sort of middle-ground between our extra-high quality premium filament and our budget filament. It offers the best of both worlds with great printing quality backed by more cost-efficient manufacturing processes. These two features culminate into an excellent mid-line filament that everyone can enjoy and afford, without having to pay premium prices or concern themselves with sub-par printing performance.

Polylactic Acid, often referred to as PLA in the industry, is a type of plastic with quite a range of benefits for clean and safe use, and is a non-toxic plastic derived from sugarcane and corn starch. It is capable of being heated and melted at high temperatures without releasing any hazardous fumes or toxins into the air, and is completely biodegradable thanks to the renewable resources used to make it. Compared to the common plastic, ABS, Polylactic Acid has a lower shrinkage and higher heat tolerance once printed. It is also less prone to temperature-related problems during th4e printing process, and can even be printed consistently well without an enclosure.

Some of the common Adhesion Aids used with PLA include Blue Painters Tape or masking tape, a light layering of hairspray, Kapton Tape, PEI and BuildTak. It also benefits from a heated bed set to around 50° to 70°C, while the standard hotend temperature while printing is around 190° to 220°C. And in order to enjoy optimal results every time, highly detailed parts may require a parts cooling fan attached to the side of the hotend assembly.

Awesome Filament

As the Wanhao printers are good so is their filament. prints very good and is surprisingly very strong. i recommend this filament for any printer as i have used it on my Tarantula and my Wanhao i3 duplicator plus and works brilliantly. also thanks again for the great service from D.I.Y Electronics and great support on great products. Keep up the good work :)

Decent Filament

Bought the Nuclear Green filament. This filament is not just for Wanhao printers, works perfectly on my Chinese i3. Prints stuck well to my glass bed at 40 degrees with hair spray. The colour pales slightly when printed. It also comes with a resealable bag for storage

Wanhao PLA Filament - 1.75mm

Wanhao have been supplying 3D Printers internationally since as early as 2012, and have rapidly garnered a world-renowned reputation for quality machines, parts and components. After originally banding together as a group of friends and purchasing a Makerbot Thing-O-Matic, they created their own “Duplicator 1” 3D Printer, which was essentially a replica of the Thing-O-Matic, with slight modifications and alterations to make it better suit typical users.


Wanhao’s strengths have always stemmed from the fact that they are both 3D Makers and 3D Printer Manufacturers, which allows them to understand the needs of the end user when developing new models or upgrades. It is the same reason why they always make sure to stock spares of all of the different parts and components, because they believe that you should never have to buy an entirely new printer if one part breaks, and should instead be able to simply replace whichever part is broken.


There are few 3D Printing manufacturers with as much experience and reputation as Wanhao, which is why we have chosen them as one of our top suppliers here at DIYElectronics. Not only do they continue to bring out exciting new models and upgrades for existing models, but they also align with our own company culture and values by proactively supplying all of the spare parts that customers might need – so that you, as an end user, never have to source spares or alternatives if you have problems with faulty or broken parts throughout the lifespan of your 3D Printer.
