If you’re a fan of CCTREE filament (which you probably are) then you will be delightfully surprised with their brand new range of Silky PLA, which brings the best features of standard PLA Filament while adding some distinct characteristics to make it silky smooth. Designed to use almost identical settings as CCTREE’s Range of PLA filaments, this silky filament is a great “Exotic Filament” that is easy to print with while offering a smooth and almost slippery texture – just like silk!

Despite the similar printing specifications to the PLA that you’re probably accustomed to, this silky filament is slightly trickier to print with, and may require a Heated Bed temperature of between 40° and 80°C, depending on your 3D Printer setup. This helps the polymer stick to the bed more effectively despite the low-friction nature of the melted plastic, resulting in great first-layer adhesion and improved overall quality.

With that being said, we have found this Silky PLA filament to be relatively easy to print after a small amount of trial and error, and the results garnered after just a bit of practice were fantastic. So consider getting some of CCTREE’s Silky PLA Filament to add to your collection, and start imagining of the unique and novel prints that you’ll be able to produce – with silky, smooth and arguably very enjoyable tactile textures.

CCTREE Silky PLA Filament - 1.75mm Red

CCTREE is somewhat of a newcomer compared to brands like eSUN and Wanhao, but have certainly made big waves with their cost-effective PLA, ABS and Exotic 3D Printer Filaments.

They are a subsidiary of Shenzhen Prime Technology Company, and have chosen to partner with us as their South African suppliers, affording us the opportunity to supply South Africa with quality 3D filament at an even lower price than they offer on their official website.

Aside from the cost-efficiency of their 3D Printer Filaments, what we like most about CCTREE is that they share a similar business approach to our own here at DIYElectronics, with the belief that “When you buy from us, the sale is not complete when we ship your order, it is complete when you are totally satisfied.”
