Looking for specific info?

Is this re-branded amazon basics filament? I loved it but can’t find it anymore.

I can’t find proof, but it prints as good as hatchbox for me! I loved amazon basics filament before it went away.

Does this pla have any additives that would prevent it from being food safe?

While not labeled ‘food safe’, i believe annealing the pla in super fine salt in the oven for an hour would eliminate the porosity most are concerned about for cleanliness. Look up this process on youtube. Many makers are doing this not only to help with porosity and surface finish, but also strength. This annealing helps the layers stick together better, and packing it inside super fine salt prevents sagging and warping.

Can i buy this filament without the build surface? My build surface is 300 x 300 crx10 so the 200 x 200 wont be enough

Hi the build surface is a bonus, it‘s free so it’s there but you can choose not to use it. :p
we offer 200 x 200 as a gift is because it’s the maximun we can get in the filament box so, sorry for the inconvenience.
We will launch easy-to-use build surface soon, 300 x 300 will be available then.

Does this pla contain any nylon or abs? Or is it pure pla?

It doesn’t contain any nylon or abs, it’s just basic pla but a little bit tougher than pure pla to make it not so brittle as pure pla.

Are the colors random for the 6 pack?

It’s not random. Currently we only launched 6 colors and the 6-pack has all of them. Black, white, red, blue, light gray and space gray.

To overture, why does red 1.78 pla keep going out of stock?

No i keep buying it though

What is the net weight of the filament you get? Does the 1 kilo include the spool?

You get 1 kilo of filament.
The weight of the spool is not calculated in that.
You can always look in the product details section and it will tell you the dimension of the shipped package including the weight.

Cual es la dimensión de la caja del paquete de 6 kg de filamento.? What is the size of the 6 kilogram package box?

Las cajas miden 8x10x3 pulgadas cada una. Multiplicalo por 6 aprox… (como 12 pulgadas de alto por 22 de ancho por 18 largo.) (un aproximado solamente).

Where is this made?

This product is made in china

Does anyone one know, what the actual weight of the new cardboard spool is? Don’t have an empty one to calculate use?

The spools are supposed to be 1 kg of filament if you put it on a scale and grab the total weight minus 1 kg should have the weight of the spool.

What is the diameter of the spool?

200 mm in diameter by 67 mm wide

The white color, is it really white or is it off-white?

Its really white

Would this pla work on a makerbot gen 5?

As long as the machine takes 1.75mm filament and can heat the nozzle to 190-220c, i don’t see why not.

How is the finish on the white pla? I’ve used some with a ‘powdery’ feel on the finished product while others have a smooth, shiny finish, or matte.

Yes i had to deal with this also. The problem is in how fast you print and the temperature. I found this on some other pla manufactures as well. I would suggest temp @ 220 c. & speed around 75 – 80 %. Good luck.

I can’t get this to adhere to my (prusa) build plate. What temp are you using for the extruder and bed? Are you putting anything on the build plate?

I am running my extruder at 200c and a bed temp of 60c.
My filament came with an adhesive textured build plate cover which is similar to the textured build plate cover on my creality printer (so i didn’t use it). I actually had a difficult time removing parts from my printer because they adhered so well to the bed. I also print my parts using a raft (not brim or skirt).

How big are the rolls? Looking to buy a container for the rolls and curious about the size of the roll. Container is 9.5 x 8.5 x 3.5

Diameter of paper spool 7.8 inches
width of paper spool 2.8 inched

Can this product be used with the dremal model 3d40?

According to dremal they use 1.75 dia. Pla so this would also work.

4 out of 4 times the nozzle gets clogged and stops printing 3-4 hours into a print. Temp change doesn’t help. Ideas??

If your using new overture, it could likely be the filament. Also heat could be traveling too high up in the hotend and causing filament to melt and jam. Try new nozzle, higher fan speed, new fan, lower print temperature, i run at 112-115° with a .8 mm nozzle.

Red and light gray are gone now. I like this filament a lot but the dwindling color selection is problematic. Any plans to stock more colors?

Yes, we have the plan. Now more filaments are on the way, will be available late this month, sep.
Thank you for your concern.
You can choose the 6-pack to get all the colors if you need it in a hurry. :p

How is the finish on the white pla? I’ve used some with a ‘powdery’ feel on the finished product while others have a smooth, shiny finish, or matte.

I can speak for the black i assume the white is similar. The black is the smooth shiny variety.

Great quality, hasn't disappointed

I’ve had a little collection of overture filaments for some time and haven’t had a bad experience with them yet. I often use their filament if i’m troubleshooting issues as i can trust their filament to be a constant.

Overall their pla has been flawless and this white pla is no exemption. If you’re worried about the cardboard spool it comes on, it seems to be pretty solid, but i can’t quite vouch for it as i don’t use that type of filament holder.

If you’re looking for quality at a good price, you should definitely consider overture. Just remember that filament quality means nothing if your printer hasn’t been properly dialed in.

Works great

Im frugal and dont want to waste but 3d printing often results in prototypes that are useless and go to waste so i want inexpensive but when the print turns out useful it turns out durable and strong and precise with overture and doesnt have to be done over with a better filament because this is the best of my plas. Soft in appearance and smooth accurate layers that dont separate all at acceptable prices.

Consistent adhesion and print quality

I am new to the 3d printing hobby but in the two brands of filament i have used this has been the best. Consistent print quality and bed adhesion (60 c glass bed) as long as you keep your bed clean. This material seems to leave behind a slightly greasy substance on the glass bed. If i do not mist with ipa and wipe down between prints i will get adhesion issues. Not sure if this is common for all filaments or not as i am new. The other brand of filament i used was sunlu and i had brittle issues where the filament was snapping just being loaded on the printer. With this filament you just set your nozzle temp to 200 c and bed temp to 60 c and hit print and you get a part. No thrills. Just does what you expect

Best value filament on the market

Print quality with this filament is absolutely amazing. I get crisp and clean layer lines with little to no variation between each layer. I also like how overture is using cardboard rolls to protect the environment. I only use overture filament now and i love it.

Good as other brands

I always was buying amazon basics pla until it was out of stock and decided to try this. I like this brand because the paper-based holder is hopefully easier on the environment. I cannot tell the difference in my prints and the price is usually good! I will keep buying from now on!

Cant beat it

I started using this after having issues with hatchbox pla. I have nothing to complain about, it just works!
No more messing with the printer for an hour on every print. I press the button and walk away. I will absolutely be buying this again in the future.

Very good option

I have had the best success with matchbox pla, tried a few other, cheaper options, and those were nothing but a headache. This overture brand isn’t much cheaper, but it seems to be just the same quality as the matchbox, just not as fancy of a spool or box.

This is likely the brand i’ll continue using, unless i end up with issues.

The tiniest but most useful difference between this brand and the others i’ve tried is this spool has markings on it showing approximately how much filament is left.

Good filament for a great price

I’ve now gone through 2 spools of this pla printing a 1:12 scale at-st walker, and it’s performed beautifully. I had a little stringing at 1st, but was able to dial it in quickly and have had just stellar results since. I’ve had great adhesion, smooth layer lines and no issues with jamming, tangling or breaking. I’ll definitely be back for more, and in other colors!

Amazing glow

I haven’t started printing with this yet so i’ll come back later to modify this review, but holy cow does it glow! I left it next to an led bulb for about an hour and this is what it looked like.

Great basic pla

Used and ender 3

great for mini figures and props.

Weather and outdoor activities can noticably wear it down with in a few weeks if you are using it as a prop.

Easily a great first pla filiment if you are a beginner.

Also sturdy enough to make screw, nuts/bolts to hold 5lb items.

Pretty good filament with one mitigatable flaw.

This is pretty good filament. Not the best i’ve used, but also nowhere near the worst. There is one issue with it that can be mitigated with a modification to your printer. You’ll see in my photos that i had to print a filament guide for my printer to work well with this filament. The one i printed is called ‘ender 3 filament guide by mechaneg’.

The reason this is necessary is because of how overture winds the filament on the spool. It’s done in a very haphazard way, which makes it possible for filament to become tangled as the printer retracts and then tries to extrude again. This happened to me twice before i printed the guide, and it results in the filament snapping. If you’re not right at the end of the print, it basically means you lose the print.

The filament guide fixes this. I assume it’s because it gives it more slack when the printer retracts the filament, so when it starts extruding again, it’s not likely to tangle.

I absolutely love the blue-gray color! It goes really well with so many things. I will be buying this again, now that i know how to use it reliably. I hope my learning experience helps you too! Happy printing!

Black outstanding white poor

The dual roll package came with (2) 2.2lbs rolls, one white and black. I’ve used the black before with great results but as others have mentioned the white is pretty awful. No sheen and lumpy exterior.
Use a dryer box and vacuum pack with deccatan bag’s. I use it for prototyping purposes only, not worth the time to fix. Will buy we white from another recommended source.

Good for the money spent.

Having a bit of an issue getting it to adhere to the print table but that is probably because i am new to 3d printing. When i do get it to adhere it prints great.

Pretty decent

Fairly good filament, some small issues had to be worked out to get it printing properly. No build sheet was included so i’m assuming they no longer give out free build sheets with the filament. Also note this pla softens at lower temps than others even at 45- 50c in my filament dryer the filament clips i had made out of this warped while the ones made from non overture pla held fine.

Pretty good

Overture makes good filament, but the black roll i got has had constant tangles and ive lost two time consuming prints now due to it.

Great so far. Poor spool wrap

I tried this as a cheaper filament for basic projects and so far it’s been great. Ive already bought three more spools since.
The only issue i have, is every spool has come very poorly wrapped on the spool. I’ve seen many complaints of this and tangles but have been luck so far.

Cheaper pla, higher quality results!

Opening the box, it comes with vacuum sealed spool and temperature recommendations from overture. Filament seems to be very clean, strong, and not brittle! Loaded it into my monoprice mp10 mini and struggled with getting good printer bed adhesion at first. Adjusting the z offset lower than usual, as well as running bed/nozzle temperature higher than usual, helped a lot with adhesion issues on my textured printer bed (bed temp: 60 celsius & nozzle temp: 205 celsius). Haven’t had any problems with this filament and everyone i show my prints to say they look really good!

More like silky mustard than gold

The filament works fine for print as always. This is my go to brand for filament both pla and petg. Just ordered silk gold pla, and it’s more of a silky mustard yellow in color than a metallic gold.

Great prints, but tricky to start when first switching to this.

I have the cr-10 v3.

This was the first spool of filament i bought after using up the pack that was included with my printer, and not going to lie, it gave me a lot of issues at first — bad bed adhesion, the first layer just wouldn’t stick, there were bubbles, and i would have random strings sticking out. All when it was printing perfectly fine with the previous filament. After a lot of print tests, research and some good ol’ cleaning, i now get beautiful prints from the overture pla filament.

Not all the printing issues i had were due to the filament. It was my first time changing out the filament, and i wasn’t exactly being gentle when trying to switch it out, so my leveling was most likely off. But i also found that this filament needed temps that are higher than the default settings i was previously using.

After searching on these reviews for suggestions on settings, it was printing better, but the first print adhesion was still not great and i had to watch the first layer like a hawk. I think i see residue from all the testing and failed prints getting smooshed too close to the bed, but scraping wasn’t working, and the screen cleaner that has worked fine in the past doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Finally decided to bring out the isopropyl alcohol and i finally had beautiful prints.

One star off because it can be pretty tricky to get the settings and adhesion dialed in to start, and as a 3d printing newbie i got so frustrated that i almost gave up, but it i got great prints once i got it figured out.

Photo (after changing the temp settings. Edges are jagged because the leftover brim hasn’t been sanded off yet): left print – before cleaning the bed with alcohol. Right print – after cleaning.

New temperature settings:
print temp (nozzle) – 210 c
plate temp (bed) – 60 c
