Faberdashery

Recommended Posts

I've been waiting for Faberdashery to restock on several colours for months but no colours are coming back into stock and those that are in stock just seem to reduce.

 

I've tried e-mailing and phoning them but get no reply.

 

Does anyone know what's happening with them?

 

Thanks

I had the same sort of experience from them, their website hasn't been updated for ages and even their twitter feed is stale. I am guessing they are about to stop trading.

Personally since they have show zero improvement on this last 3 years nor spooled their colors this wouldn’t surprise me, specially With the prices of colorfabb now that offers custom RAL colors you can have 2 kilos perfectly spooled of almost any color. I did stop getting faber years ago and moved to cheaper and more production reliable offers from fillamentum, eumakers and colorfabb for my shop needs.

Odd, we obviously have very different perspectives.

I have found Faberdashery to be much cheaper and produces great prints.

I also have many more problems with spooled filament than I ever have with the unspooled filament from Faberdashery.

 

They could improve the consistency of supply though, it is annoying when colours are out of stock for weeks.

I agree with Neotko, I got my Fab samples and the lack of spool made It just a pain and I still can't see why this would be a good busyness sense for them, so many people must be put off my the lack of spool. It would make more sense for them to at the very least offer a spooled option on all colours. I found their actual filament to print well, but saying that not noticeably better than Filamentum and others. Taking the price into account and the lack of a spool, I didn't order any more. Shame as some of the metallic type colours are nice. My guess is they are about to go under (if haven't already)

    • 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.
