I did pick this up this PM Filament Pearl Red. I think the color looks great so I had to try it out.

I did deside to make a stand with the Pearl Red for a T-Rex Skull. The Skull will be in my next review on another PM Beige filament.

I will later on but my profile for Simplify3D on the site for you to get.
The Print and quality looks great, but maybe it is just me but I thought the Pearl Red was suppose to make a bit shine surface but this is not shining. But the print continues.
I think PM filament so far has been a very good printing filament in the PLA series and is for sure something I will try more off. This surface on this print also looks very good.
Just remember to get good print you you have to calibrate your printer and for very good surface on your prints a good nozzle is importen not a 50 cent nozzle. Nozzle like this from a Danish shop are very good and last alot longer than the cheap once. I’am on this setup using a volcano but you can also get that in that shop.
Result of the print job
If I look past that I thought that it had a red shine in the color. Then it looks great so without the shining I’am still happy with it.
PM Pearl Red
Easy to print with. Good quality PLA filament, very good surface in the print. It it not shining filament but a deep red color. The filament spool is abit bigger than thoose I usely get. But overall a great filament.
