All filament samples are at least 20 meters in length (actually more, I increased the length to eat up the extra filament being left behind on the rolls)
PLA Pro Select - Aqua
Extrusion Temp: 195 to 225C

I wanted to go with soft colors for the April box and the Aqua had just the right hint of green!
PLA - Chocolate
Extrusion Temp: 180 to 230C

Can't have Easter without Chocolate! Let's see your chocolate bunnies and eggs!
PLA - Cerulean
Extrusion Temp: 190 to 230C

I thought this was a great sky blue color and could make some great eggs!
PLA - Perfect Peach
Extrusion Temp: 190 to 210C
Bed Temp: 20-60C
I haven't done a peach color yet and I thought this was a very pretty color for Easter.

January 2019 Alien3D UFO Monthly Subscription box review
Thanks Josh. Got the box today. Sorry to hear that you had issues putting it all together. Best wishes for the months to come. I’m excited about getting into another monthly project and the samples look great this month.
Thank you! This month might be a couple days late due to the box printer still not informing me that the order is being processed yet, but everything else is already on the way or already here and will be here in time!
Wonder if anyone else is having issues getting the orange in the April box to stick to wham bam build serfice. Tryed it on 2 printers it just wont stick. All the others have worked fine good box sorry you had issues we all love the boxes here keep up the good work and thank you.
I haven’t heard anything about sticking issues. I’m not sure how many people have a WHAM surface and the printer I have my WHAM plate on isn’t working at the moment =( I installed a buildtak sheet on the opposite side of the WHAM… might be useful to you to do as well due to variances in filaments.
Cool thank you i have put a known good filament on now and it prints fine no idea why the orange wont stick. But there you go i have no other printers to test it on that dont have wham bam but my cr10 s5 but no room to set it up yet. Its no big deal just thought most everything stuck to it so i am guessing its probably defective in some way that only is effected on this new pex serfice.
Alien Ooz has got to be one of the most interesting colors I have seen. it reminds me of the Swampthing comics years ago.
started using the filaments with the April box, the aqua printed really nice. Went to use the 3d passion peach, it is all brittle and has broken into at least 10 different pieces. This is coming from the sealed bag. Tried printing with the longest piece, that bdoke after about 12 layers. I gave up trying to print with thst, moved on to the tianse cerulean. This filament was even more brittle than the previous. Are these premium samples or stuff left over and exposed to humidity? not sure why they are so brittle when i just opened the sealed pack. As you can imagine, i am upset about this, i barely have a sample long enough for a 3d pen.
I’m Sorry Bosco, I open the filament, spool it and instantly put them in bags with the silica… I will send you some extra samples of other brands. I honestly don’t know why some filaments get so brittle like that when they should be sealed =(
