3d Printing Fun With Glow-in-the-dark Filament


Hey, everybody, welcome back to the shop today. I’m working with the new material on my Sovall sv01 3d printer, And I thought I would share with you. My experience that I’ve had with it today. I’m working with this isan mate glow in the dark PLA plus filament and this is my first time working with PLA plus, and it’s been a pretty positive experience. It prints almost exactly like pla. I did bump up the temperature by about 15 degrees more than what I usually print PLA at. So I’m running it at about 215 and it prints just fine. It sticks to the bed, just fine. Everything has been great. The reason I was intrigued by this particular filament is obviously because it glows in the dark and we will be taking a look at that shortly. But let me talk about the filament first, and then we will get to what I printed with it. So since this is PLA, plus, the filament appears to be a lot stiffer and maybe a little bit more rigid than normal PLA or at least the PLA that I’m used to. So I noticed that right out of the box and to be honest with you. When I first bought this, I didn’t realize it was PLA plus. I thought it was normal PLA, but I knew there was something different about it. As soon as I tried to load it into my extruder because there is a noticeable difference in the stiffness of the product, it feels like it might be just a little bit stronger, A little bit more resistant to breakage than normal PLA, so lets. Take a look and see what I printed with this. This being the holiday season, I decided to print a couple of different oogie boogie characters from the nightmare before Christmas. I thought that the glow-in-the-dark nature of the filament was perfect for this type of a figurine and I also printed my benchy, which I do with every new filament that I try out just to make sure that it prints as expected and that the settings that I have for, it are good, so what I want to do. Is I’m going to go ahead and turn out the lights and we’re going to take a look at these, and then I’m going to take a look at these with a black light on them, and you will kind of see the difference between what the natural glow is and what I would call. Maybe the enhanced glow with a black light. So first let’s take a look at the normal glow that these give off with the lights off. Okay, so here’s what the models look like just with having been charged by the normal studio lights and overhead lighting that I have in my workshop. The glow is pretty much just as you see it on screen. It is nice and it’s a bright glow, and if you hold these really close to a light and even in regular lit conditions, you can see the glow after you charge it really close to a light, but you haven’t seen anything yet. I’m going to go ahead and turn on the black light now and you can see how these glow under the black light. Okay, so I have my black light here laying across the table, and as you can see, it really lights. These guys up really bright. And it also seems to light up my yellow filament, which I suspected was fluorescent, but it’s supposed to just be yellow. So there you go, It’s pretty bright once you get this black light on them and they keep that charge. Even after you turn off the black light, it kind of supercharges them and so the black lights off and these things are shining like they are their own light source so to speak so once again. This is the I Sandmate Glow-in-the-dark PLA plus filament and my verdict is it comes highly recommended If you’re looking for something. Uh, that works well as a glow-in-the-dark filament. This definitely does that, and it prints really well. I haven’t had any failures. All the prints have come out highly detailed, and they just look really well. It sticks to your bed. There’s no curling no shrinkage. Everything works out as expected, So I’m pretty satisfied with this. So I feel like before I sign off. These guys need maybe a couple of finishing touches. So let me do that really quick. And then I will be back to sign off on this video. [MUSIC] There he is [Music]. Thanks, everybody for watching. I hope this video helped you out.
