As 3D Makers who love to experiment with all types of different polymers and Exotic Filaments, we often find ourselves getting quite far from the classic materials like PLA and ABS. Of course, if you really want to step up your 3D Printing game and produce some truly unique pieces of art or genuinely authentic looking models, you typically have to extend into exotics and trickier polymers. This is why we love finding new PLA-based Semi-Exotic Filaments like eSUN’s Glow in the Dark Filament Range, as these allow for more unique aesthetics while still keeping the same PLA printing ease-of-use, and this is precisely what gets us excited with this new eSUN PLA+ Green Glow in the Dark Filament.

 

More Glow and Even Easier to Print!

While many of you adventurous 3D Makers will already know about eSUN’s Glow in the Dark PLA and ABS, we’re excited to tell you that this new version is not only made from the more advanced PLA+ Filament, but it’s also been specially formulated for even more glow too! This makes it not only far more alluring as it shines even brighter than ever before amidst the blackness of a dark room, but also makes it far easier to use, with the specialised PLA+ polymer to make it easier to print, give it a smoother finish, and ensure more reliable parts with stronger structural form.

Of course, as many of us would agree, glow in the dark things are best enjoyed in the classic green, blue and pink colours, as these provide a ghastly yet vibrant kind of aesthetic, and with this filament being a beautiful lumo-green colour (when glowing in the dark), you can expect a truly awesome glow that’s ideal for all kinds of applications, from Halloween decorations to Subtle Cosplay accessory accents. So start thinking about the fun pranks, decorations, night lights and other goodies you can use this cool 3D Filament for, because you don’t need any special tools or fancy features to print PLA+, and you can use your Prusa, Ender, CR-10 or almost any other FDM Printer to get involved in Semi-Exotics like eSUN Glow in the Dark PLA+.

Please Note: Although this filament is based on PLA, the additive used to make it glow is quite abrasive, and as such we recommend getting a Spare Nozzle to use with specifically for this filament. Alternatively, you could also choose to equip your 3D Printer with a more durable nozzle like a Hardened Steel Nozzle, a Plated Brass Nozzle or an A2 Tool Steel Nozzle, which will all be able to handle this filament with ease, while also offering slightly improved printing qualities for other filaments too.

Shenzhen eSUN Industrial Co., Ltd was established in 2002 in Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and has rapidly become one of the leading international suppliers of 3D Printing Filament. They specialise in research, development and production of degradable polymer materials, and have grown their catalogue of filaments to include PLA, ABS, PC, PVA, and a wide range of other polymers and copolymers.


Their list of exclusive filament formulas include unique materials like wood, aluminium, bronze and other materials to create highly specialised filaments that can stretch, bend, be moulded or otherwise behave in very unique ways. Their filaments are also commonly characterised by their absolutely round shape, extremely low diameter tolerance, uniform colours and impressively stable melting points. These characteristics, in combination with their long-term insistent policy of “Best Quality, Reasonable Price” has garnered them a large share of the market, with their reputation commonly preceding them within knowledgeable online and offline 3D Printing communities.


eSUN’s popularity in the industry has also helped to produce sustainable partnerships with many internationally famous 3D Printer manufacturers and distributors, with DIYElectronics having sole distributorship rights to provide their 3D Printing Filaments to South Africa and neighbouring African countries.
