From a technical point that might be true indeed. I care about filament size consistency but maintly I want good quality prints & specially good (and repeatable) colors.

 

What can you tell me of this company Smart Materials?

it is good quality?

I've seen that has great prices.

You've got to use their filaments?

The filament size it's fantastic. It prints just as good or better than colorfabb. For technical stuff their coral color has give me better prints than faber. I use their orange, blue and coral colors for my customers.

I also really like FormFutura. Especially their yellow. (Much better than Colorfabb's yellow, for example. I mean in terms of colour.)

I did have some bed adhesion issues with my FormFutura, easily solved with glue stick, but I was also still just learning to print. :)

For structural stuff, I prefer Colorfabb, because PLA/PHA is better than plain PLA. But FormFutura is quality stuff and fantastic colours.

Hope this helps. :)

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
