its okay

Once I found a temperature where it would stick to the bed, it printed well enough but it didn't seem any better than the Makergear filament I use.

Excellent PLA.

It would be cool if you could provide advice on how to handle small 10m samples

Clearly better quality

After a disappointing experience with another suppliers set of samples where the translucent sample caused a number off issues including hot end clogging and delamination during printing it felt like a gamble testing the sample translucent pack from Rigid Ink. I am glad to say the Rigid Ink samples stand 'clearly' head and shoulders above those I previously tried.

Great filament

Just works, as promised.

(Translucent) Amazing pack with excellent print quality.

Translucent colors are hard to photograph, so I would usually suggest grabbing samples to get a realistic idea of how they do look like printed.

For Rigid Ink the results for the blue and green are amazing (they even cover some of my printer's artifacts) and the clear one is promising if you fine tune your set up. Notable surprise the white translucent ("pearl"), it's milky enough and looks good on vases or figures. It honors its name.
Red ... i would call it cherry, and green is frog/leaf. Blue is dark electric blue .

Printed at 200ºC 40mm/s speed on a Malyan M200 with absolutely 0 clogs and 0 bubbles / humidity pops.
