best of filament cutting

Recommended Posts

Posted · best of filament cutting

I have some pretty hefty scissors that I use to cut my filament, but even still they are nearly uncabale to break the equally hefty 2.85mm filament. I want to know what other people use and what works best ( be it a butcher's knife, garlic press or your bare teeth)

I use either some small side cutters or a pair or claw cutters that I have for my cats, both are. Easy to use and give a good cut
