    Sure it may not be called “Amazon Basics” but this filament is identical – same spool, even the Overture logo and other writing on the spool match the Amazon Basics filament line. I love this stuff, it’s cheap and it works well in my Prusa MK3S and my Monoprice Maker Select Plus.Read more

    I bought a roll of this since it was on sale, and decided to try it for a two color project. The calibration cube and a couple of other tests appeared to be ok, but when I started on heavier prints for the project I started to have major under-extrusion issues in random places. I took several spot measurements of the diameter of the filament, and it was all 1.70-1.80 mm. So I knew that wasn’t the issue. Yet, as you can see in the picture of the tube, there are several layers with minimal filament present, where there should have been a 4mm thick wall. The tube mechanically failed about 1/3 of the way up where those major underextrusions occurred. Examining the failure points, there were random bits of filament, then a solid line, then random bits again, etc. I was able to separate these layers with minimal force. Then I remembered that I had two calibration cubes printed with different brands of filament. Exact same g-code, so they should be really close in weight, right? Well, as you can see in the pictures, that was *not* the case. The Hatchbox PLA (black) weighed in at 5.47 grams, while the Overture PLA (red) weight 3.92 grams. Nearly 30% lighter!!! Sadly, this is not a good value if prints fail due to structural problems from underextrusion due to the low density of this filament.Read more

    Like Hatchbox? Good. Me too. That stuff is amazingly consistent. This stuff isn’t. I was printing Facemask ear protectors with Hatchbox PLA on my Ender 3 with a Glass bed and making 50 a day for my Nurse friends. Hatchbox was running out. Found this PLA and it had some decent reviews. Bought it. Swapped out PLA and ran same Gcode for protectors. Failed adhesion… poor distribution. Issues. Issues. Issues. After 2 hours of playing with settings and releveling the bed. I gave up. Fast forward 2 weeks. Decide to print some Benchies. Failed adhesion on first layer. Issues. Issues. Issues. Change some settings. OH WOW. ONE OF THEM WORKED!? I print another with settings for higher quality. OH WOW ANOTHER WORKED. I might have found the secret to getting this PLA to work like hatchbox! Try for a 3rd benchy… Failed Adhesion. Issues. Issues. Issues. After 3 hours of playing with settings, reverting to the original Gcode of the ones that worked… I’ve come to see that this PLA is as the other critical reviews have stated. Brittle, under density and inconsistent. Maybe you’ll be lucky and get a good roll. I do not recommend this brand.Read more

    I needed WHITE PLA so I ordered 3 spools of the OVERTURE White… the product photos must have been photoshopped because it got here aaaaand… this stuff is very much an OFF-white/almost yellow, not an actual white. In fact, I’d even go as far as to say it’s the LEAST white, white PLA I’ve ever purchased. The other photos posted by users also looked pretty white but now I realize that they weren’t taking the photo near anything that was ACTUALLY white so their cameras auto-adjusted the white balance to make it look more what than it actually is. I took photos next to ACTUAL white PLA so that my phone’s camera would auto white balance properly and the pics I took look pretty accurate (on my phone and computer screens anyway). Since I needed ACTUAL white, I wasn’t even able to use this stuff. Just immediately sent it back for a refund after seeing how not-white it was. And yes, I know I can paint over it but that kind of defeats the purpose for me. If I was going to paint over it then why even get white filament and pay a (somewhat) premium price when I can just get other filament that works fine for close to $11-$15/spool and just paint over that. Very disappointed :/ It’s really too bad… I was looking forward to trying this stuff out after seeing all the positive reviews. Maybe I’ll still try their other colors but if you’re in need of actual white PLA, look elsewhere. I know this is slightly a rant but I hope the information and photos are helpful to someone out there.Read more

    The media could not be loaded. This is some really nice filament. Put it to the test on my super wobbly Tronxy X5. It prints well at a lower temp, like 200c on the hot end. The build mat included WITH each roll of filament is a great add on, I gave it a shot with PLA and it stuck on great and my part popped off when cooled down. Very nice vibrant red. I wrote this reveiw unsolicited for no compensation of any sort for fellow makers to make a solid choice.

    I’ve now bought three different brands of PLA filament: AmazonBasics, Overture, and Sunlu. Since Sunlu was the highest rated and “Amazon’s choice” I thought I’d try it…boy was that a mistake! The recommended retraction speed demanded on their SPLA is 100mm/s (four times higher than default rate) – after trying multiple different settings combinations (their recommended, the default, and lots of mixtures), I eventually gave up. The stringing on the prints is unbearable and I discovered that half of their five star reviews are due to a Twitter promotion wherein a 5 star review earned you a free roll/etc. I never write reviews but if I can stop even ONE person from making my mistake then it will have been worth it. This Overture filament was great – adhesion was flawless (I use painter’s tape on my bed but it adhered to the Ender 3 build tac default bed as well) and the layers were even.Read more

    I’ve had success with some of the other OVERTURE filaments, but this white roll I got it just garbage. I had so many failed prints as soon as I started using it, then I ran it through a series of test prints to try and fine tune the setting and still ended up with a lot of problems, especially adhesion to the glass plate and stringing. Wouldn’t recomend.Read more

    EDIT: Taking off another star. Aside from ongoing inconsistencies with bed adhesion the winding of the filament on the reel has twice caused breakage by being cross-wound so that it chokes and locks, breaking at the extruder. Poor. Overall a disappointment. I had mixed results with this filament. It seems to perform well in terms of extrusion and consistent thickness. but I have had 50/50 adhesion success.. It just doesn’t have that reliable adhesion. It’s cheap, but I have found it frustrating and can not rely on it for long print jobs. Shorter time prints are better, but not 100%.Read more

    My printer keep clogging since im using this pla. Im printing a trex skull and iv wasted 6 hours on 3 piece so far. Not sure 100% its this but what else. I did not had this problem with last pla a couple days ago. Ill change my rating if next pla do the same. EDITED: Seems to have been mix of my printer and this PLA. I have tried another of the same brand and he clogged once but the rest of the day was fine.. So buy at your peril. 2nd EDIT back to 1* . Another spool same brand keep clogging with brand new nozzle.Read more

    I purchased several Overture 1kg 1.75mm spools in several colors for my Ender3 Pro. Using the Creality slicer that runs Cura 1.22, I get stellar results. Prints are sharp with a nice glossy look. Zero stringing or pops. Every spool is vacuum packed and a cool print base is provided free of charge that looks similar to the Ender3 Pro magnetic base. I have not tested the supplied base since I use the Ender3 magnetic base. Very pleased and will be purchasing more.Read more

    ~Edited at the end after using up the roll~ I’ve had to switch from the previous brand I had (Duramic) because it’s no longer available and opted for this one. So far, I haven’t managed a single print without any issues. Tangled twice, broke three times and clogged once, had to replace the tube entirely. I’m worried about leaving it alone because it keeps causing issues. The last time it broke, I had to pause mid-print, pull out the filament to avoid it clogging again and as I was grabbing the filament with a 2-fingered feather grip light enough to caress a newborn, it broke again in my hand. None of this ever happened with the other filaments I’ve used. It’s done nothing but cost me money for things like new bowden tubing and print heads and waste my time with failed prints and cleanup. Not a single successful print so far. To top it off, it’s very stringy and bridges poorly, but that might be because I haven’t found the right settings for this particular PLA (which I won’t be using for long anyway). One little tiny thing that’s noteworthy about it though is that from the little bit I did manage to extrude without it breaking on me, the layers are nice and smooth compared to the old filament, adhesion is really good. Shame. EDIT: After the initial problems and some research, I learned that tangling is due to user error, not the factory. I still wouldn’t get this filament again despite it printing nicely and adhering well, It’s still prone to clogging and very brittle. It also tends to adhere a bit TOO well and leave residue, even at lower bed and head temps (flexible magnetic bed). Once you do get a print out of it though, the finish is nice and the quality is overall very good. For comparison, I’ve switched filament again and it’s sturdy even when bent, doesn’t clog and prints well.Read more
