I'm really liking this filament so far. I think with a little more dial-in time It will print perfectly.

Welcome to HATCHBOX 3D Products Our engineered filament is here to help you stream your creative outlet, enabling you to see your thoughts and concepts engineered into a real and rewarding reality. The filaments are universally designed and compatible with 3D Printers using 1.75mm diameter filament, with a dimensional accuracy of +/- 0.05mm.  PLA, or Polylactic Acid, is a commonly used thermoplastic material that does not require the use of a heated print bed. Blending a mixture of plant-based materials and polymers creates HATHCHBOX 3D Printer's PLA, making this material more earth-friendly. Because of the lower melting temperatures and lack of warping, PLA filaments retain their color vibrancy and are a common choice for displays or small household prints. The 3D printed object will have a glossy type finish with we love it: Less warping Easy to use No heated bed required Eco-friendly.

Please evaluate how was working with this material compared with other materials 1 - very hard, 5 – considerably easier
Which of the technical parameters had the biggest influence on material printing quality?
I changed the extrusion multiplyer to 1.25, but bumped the speed up to 60mm/s. I should print another at a reduced speed to see if it helps with the side walls

Please name what you believe are the 3 most evident characteristics of this material tough, fragile, elastic, solid, soft, other – name them
Easy to work with, strong and great color.

Good, however I think printing this on the slower speed will make it even better. <60mm/s
