We received the filament in the same order as our Glitter Purple. Unfortunately, the matte blue did not come with a resealable bag like the Glitter Purple. This is a huge bummer since we were totally expecting one.
We immediately printed an XYZ cube at the lowest rated temperature and default cube settings (190c/0.1-layer height/30% infill) on our Dremel but had major issues with extrusion. We increased the nozzle temperature 20c to 210 and achieved a better result but still showing layer adhesion issues.
The first Benchy printed well but not perfect, some minor adhesion and extrusion issues towards the top and the text on the back of the boat was not legible, the bottom was excellent, however.
As a final Benchy test we increased the temperature to 225c as we did with the cube and this proved a nicer result. To ensure it was not the printer causing some of the mentioned issues we printed the Benchy on our Anycubic Mega X with the exact same settings (225c/40c/40mm/s) which turned out about the same.
Man of Steel Bust
We thought the color was perfect to print a man of steel bust. Blue steel anyone? The Dremel was causing some major under extrusion towards the top on his face so we printed it with the same settings again on our Anycubic Mega X and had a much more palatable result. The supports did fail both times underneath his chest which is something of note. We think it’s time to replace the nozzle assembly on the 3D45.
Cyber Rob Stress Test
Cyber Rob is designed as a printer stress test, so we figured it was appropriate filament test as well.
We printed at the suggested settings of 0.16mm layer height, 40mm/s, 3 walls and 20% in fill and we used 225c as our nozzle temperature. You can see a lot of layer shift lines, and a bit of stringing on the top but overall, for a printer stress test we would consider it successful. The filament itself did an excellent job of adhesion with all the strange parts, nooks, and crannies.

Spool Wind and Filament Diameter Consistency
Spool wind was quite good, we used a digital caliper to measure the consistency of the diameter in 10 different spots over 3 meters of filament and found it to be quite good only varying once outside their advertised range once (+/- 0.03mm), see all measurements below.
Temperature, Overhang and Stringing Test
First test at 190c produced very little as you can see in the pictures, we increased nozzle temperature to 220c and reprinted with pretty much the exact same result.
ERYONE3D is a newer 3D printing company producing impressive PLA filaments that aren’t priced out of this world while generating excellent results. Some just starting out in 3d printing may cheap out on filament at first but you quickly learn the filament you are using is very vital to the quality and reliability of your prints.
Although the Matte Blue didn’t perform as well as the Glitter Purple in certain areas like layer adhesion and out of the box usability. It still pulls it’s weight in quality + price to performance and has a tighter tolerance ratio.
