Alternative to Ultimaker filaments for my UM3

Posted · Alternative to Ultimaker filaments for my UM3

Hello guys,

I'm looking for valid alternative to the genuine Ultimaker PVA and PLA.

Something a little bit more affordable but keeping the same quality level and strength.

What have you tried so far that you would suggest me? (Some brands which deliver in EU)

I have made a lot of use of FormFutura and Colorfab for PLA, both produce good results.

 

I was tempted to buy FormFutura PVA in the first place but after reading some bad reviews I gave up, is their PLA fair? Which one Easyfill or the Natural one?

I have greatly enjoyed the Polymaker and Colorfabb PLA's and PLA/PHA hybrida. I use a lot of the Matterhackers PVA too. I find the PLA and hybrids are pretty consistent across colors and solid to transparent/translucent.

I'm using Prima PLA. But I've only used 3 rolls of the black one. In my opinion it prints like the Ultimaker PLA. And it is halve the price of the original ones.
