Testing eSun PLA filaments: PLA-ST vs PLA+ vs Silk PLA

Title: Testing eSun PLA filaments: PLA-ST vs PLA+ vs Silk PLA. Watch on youtube: https://youtu.be/uDXgE7os0Pg

Tags: 3dprint, esun, strength test,

In this video I am testing eSun PLA filaments from mechanical strength aspect. In the test: eSilk PLA, PLA+ and PLA-ST. This is a comparison test, but I will try to keep these test specimens as some kind of my own standard, so they are comparable with each other. Results can be downloaded from my website in PDF format.
