Alepha Objects vs Velleman filaments.

Recommended Posts

i live in houston, and the only shop i know of where i can buy 3mm filament is at microcenter. they sell two brands, Alepha objects filament and Velleman filament. does any one have any experience with these filaments to recommend them (im looking for PLA), because they are a little cheaper than other places at 27 per kg. also if you know of any other shops i could buy from because sometimes shipping can take too long.

Do you want to buy it in a physical store or would you be ok with ordering filament online?

FBRC8.com has Ultimaker filament.

Colorfabb sells abroad as well.

Here are some other names I hear good things about: Protoparadigm, UltiMachine, Printbl

Good luck!

I have no experience with these filaments. Maybe someone else does..

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
