Dark Saber "white" 3D printer filament

by Skkaw on Sun Jul 11, 2021 9:55 pm

Hello!

I plan to make the DIY Darksaber (https://learn.adafruit.com/ble-darksaber-propmaker). One question I had was what type of 3D printer filament was used for the blade? It looks like a white translucent filament (PLA). Can you provide an example? For example, can I use any of the below from amazon?

SUNLU Clear PLA Filament 1.75mm, 3D Printer Filament Transparent PLA Dimensional Accuracy /- 0.02 mm, 1KG
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07ZN ... LPGH&psc=1

SUNLU PLA 3D Printer Filament, PLA Filament 1.75 mm Dimensional Accuracy +/- 0.02 mm, 1 KG Spool, PLA White
https://www.amazon.com/SUNLU-Printer-Fi ... ial&sr=1-1

Or please recommend a filament? Also, it may be helpful to post this or at least a suggestion within the DIY Howto.

Thank you!

Cheers,
Skkaw

@Skkaw,

The dark saber blade uses a clear PLA. The spools you have located on Amazon look right for this application.

Be sure to use slice settings close to the recommended ones in the guide:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
PLA filament 220c extruder
0.2 layer height
10% gyroid infill
60mm/s print speed
60c heated bed
