ultimaker vs colorfabb?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
