ultimaker vs colorfabb?


Recommended Posts

Posted · ultimaker vs colorfabb?

I'm almost out of filament, and I'm thinking about getting some spools of white and maybe a transparent one as well to try that one out for the first time.

Is there any difference between the two? I worked with both of them and no problem with either one, except for the feeling that the flow is slightly better with ultimaker. But I could be mistaken.

I never tried a transparent filament yet.

can anyone help with this little dilemma? :)

thanks a lot!

    Some of us have had problems with Colorfabb whites; I cannot comment on UM as I have never tried their filaments. For me the best white, by some distance if Faberdashery's Arctic white. You do not need to buy a 100m reel from them, you can buy a length of 10m or whatever and give it a try. You would want to find out from them what the postage cost will be.

    I have also used the their transparent filament successfully but I have not tried another transparent filament so I cannot say that theirs is the best.
