I've only just got into the 3d printing world so i have tried several different brands of filament. I have to say that the rigid.ink brand has been the best up to now. I've only got a colido diy printer which operates on a cold bed only so bed adhesion is paramount. I find that i get less curling up of prints with this brand. It lays down and stays down onto the printers tape. I find that this pla filament operates great at 205°c.
It is slightly more expensive than other brands but you get what you pay for in life. Their after sales communication is second to none. They also sent me some free samples to try after my purchase which i didn't even ask for which was a nice touch.

Bought this for a paid prop making commission as money for materials was no object, thought I'd take the opportunity to check out a "premium" filament brand. I'm not really sure what I expected, it printed well after a bit of tweaking, and seems to be a bit stronger than some cheaper brands, which unfortunately and probably uniquely ended up being a problem as the items being made needed to be snapped! The final product ended up bending quite a bit before breaking, which is great for 99.9% of my usual use, it definitely doesn't seem to be as brittle as many PLAs and is probably comparable to some PLA+ varieties. Print experience was good and winding on the roll was good, I feel like maybe the included resealable bag, although nice and flashy, could be omitted in order to reduce the cost making it more competitive, but I think that's probably part of the "premium" experience. It's been in open air for a couple of months now in the house, with no protection from moisture and seems to be unaffected so far, which is obviously good.

So to summarise, have had some great prints, minimal faff to get going, just a bit of temp tuning, nice packaging, customer service seem to be quite attentive by the looks of it (not that I've needed to contact them), it's clearly a great product, but I'm just not sure I'd pay the premium for my own general day to day use.

So I've been testing the waters lately when it comes to filament and I figured why not try rigid ink, its advertised all over Amazon and at its ridiculous price of £37 I thought why not, it must be AMAZING!?

So received 2 rolls, the purple was vacuum sealed but the translucent red wasn't vacuum sealed (the seal must have broke somewhere... thanks rigid QA) so I started printing with the translucent red and I just can't get this stuff to print well, it looks all dry and pale/pink and I just can't get it to print well. Could be that the filament was damaged from the broken seal between when they made it and when I received it I don't know. The print quality is terrible and it smells quite bad when printing, cheaper filaments don't.

I now purchase all my filament from Surreal or TechnologyOutlet on Amazon. Not as many color options but hey, they are a fraction of the price (£14-15) and the print wonderfully with no smell.

DOESN'T JUSTIFY THE PRICE and the print quality is sub-par. Save yourself money and buy cheaper.

This filament is really not worth the money when I have achieved much higher quality from 'PLA+' filaments that cost less than 50% of what this does. Additionally I have had nothing but failed print after failed print because the spool was poorly wound by the manufacturer, upon stating this in a previous review which I'm pretty sure was deleted they assured me that it is not possible for the reel to be tangled during their 'special' manufacturing process but I know for a fact that I put this reel straight into the printer without letting go of the end and have had the same problem with multiple other brands not just with rigid ink.

I have recently printed a fully operational wind turbine with Sunlu's PLA+ filament at 225c and that thing is nigh indestructible to human hands whereas a similar mechanical print with rigids white PLA fell apart almost immediately. Heck even in the Prima Value PLA was a lot tougher than this stuff but their tolerances are all over the place from reel to reel so you really cant get reliable consistency, as a result this can cause a lot of under-extrusion so I would stay away from Prima as well.

First things first. 😊 I tried the local collection service and found it wonderful. The only thing is you need to do a proper post code search to get your local post office. The order arrived 1 day early and was easy to collect from my village post office - no worrying about having to stay in!

Now the filament. Unseal it and it looks good - nice and smooth and it comes with a sealable bag to keep it in when not using it. So how does it print? Lovely. I ran 2 sample prints on my Type A Machines, series 1 printer. I ran one at 205C and the other at 220C, using pva adhesive on the glass print bed. The finish was really smooth, much better than other brands I have bought. I suspect that for a long print run 210C will be better, but I will need to experiment with a 6 inch tall owl I often print.

Rigid.ink seem to be a good company to deal with they do also send free samples, complete with a bag of sweeties! They're not the cheapest on the block, but they are one of the best - you get what you pay for and their pla filament is worth paying for.

I'm 99% sure it's my printer, Geetech i3+, but I just cant get this filament to print properly. It's twice the price of the stuff I normaly use and I was looking forward to superior prints, alas, no joy. one of the problems I have is the filament jamming in extruder, I'm thinking the 0.4mm nozzle may be too small for such a low temperature filament? I'm also having trouble getting the first layer down reliably.

I'll will persevere and try to find workable settings, but I've had the hot end apart 3 times this afternoon clearing clogs and the feed roller, at some point I will have to admit defeat and go back to the cheap stuff.

Rigid Ink filament is the best filament I have used for my printing. The colours are lovely and vibrant, the feel is very nice and the level of support supplied by Rigid Ink is amazing. They really do care about your experience and actively do what they can to make sure you get on well with your filament by providing recommended settings, follow up contact and even 3D printing PDF books with plenty of info for both beginners and pros alike. Rigid Ink defintely have gained a new loyal customer in me!

Sometimes when a company titles something "the most reliable" its usually just click bait media hype. But that is certainly not the case with Rigid Ink! I purchased this reel when i ordered a FLSUN Cube printer and after struggling for hours with the filament provided with the printer, even on a PEI bed, i decided to pop the Rigid Ink filament in. Instant Bed Adhesion, no warping i'm onto a winner here. Highly recommend that everyone with a 3D printer buys a reel of this ASAP. I promise you, once you go Rigid, you never go back!

Pretty poor to be honest for the price, it was if the first half of the spool was weathered and old! Felt brittle compared to some of the other filaments i have used, thought i'd try the best filament reported, but to be honest probably stick with stuff £20 cheaper per reel. Its not as if my printer settings changed massively, followed all guidance from their website printing slightly cooler too. Prints had a better finish for the second half of the spool i can't deny that, the first half had 2 failed prints and just generally didn't look finished like PLA should, and certainly not like the cheaper brand i have been using.

after seeing other reviews on this filament i thought yeah i'll give it a go, well where to start, it dosent seem to want to play ball, when it sticks to the bed, and i stress when, it's stringy and breaks apart (theres notihg wrong with my printer it is level and the cheaper £10 1kg filament i have works perfect) i've tried different temps, heated bed, no heated bed, different extruder temps, blue tape, no blue tape, just dosent play nice.
only thing i can really say going for it is the large range of colours available.

UPDATE : 28/07/2016

after emailing rigid inks customer service dept. pleased to say that they have sent me a replacement for the filament i had ordered, this time it worked perfect with no problems what so ever, massive thanks to the person i had contact with they really helped and very quickly sorted a replacment to be sent to me.
this time the filament worked as expected at the temps of 180C and a bed temp of 45C
