Disclosure - these are my personal findings and opinions, I’ve not received any items for free or any compensation from any manufacturers for my tests.
I’m now 3 months into my SV06 experience and one thing that I’ve been doing is testing various filament manufacturers’ products. For my real-world, non-test printing, I’ve settled on PLA+ and PETG. I’m not going to list all of the myriad brands I’ve tried, but I will share that the filament from SUNLU and IIID Max have been the most consistent. And, since IIID Max is made in the USA, offers free shipping, and ships immediately on order, they have become my go-to for filament moving forward.
One thing that also drives me toward IIID Max is that the makeup of their filaments don’t appear to shift from color to color. Of course, my function prints are usually gray or black, but I’ve ordered and tested many colors (their 10 pack deals are fantastic - $11.90 per Kg for PLA+) with no changes required in my settings. With the SUNLU and most other brands, I had to create separate filament definitions to get consistent prints. Not so with the IIID Max filaments - at least for PLA+ and PETG. I’ve just ordered a 3 pack of their Xtreme PLA with nanodiamonds and look forward to the results with that product.
If you’re still looking for a solid, consistent filament source, I can readily recommend IIID Max.
Here’s a good staring link for their products:
