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. :)

    • "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.
