    I'm a fan of the Faberdashery stuff when I print small things (awesome quality but pricey) for large things I use Ultimaker stuff, which I see as decent quality (but Ultimaker PLA is easy to get for me)

    Printbl/Diamond Age is my overall favorite - output quality may be the best (Green, Purple, Silver, Yellow all give me crazy good results) and the filament is extremely forgiving of temperature adjustments - it flows almost the same from 200-240° and with drastic changes in print speed. The Banana Yellow is an incredibly useful material - I honestly don't like the color that much, but it flows far better - and is much less brittle - than any other PLA I have tried. I generally do most of my printing in other colors and at 0.1mm or thinner, but when I need a bunch of large objects - quickly - I switch to the yellow and print with fast, thick layers, still getting excellent part quality.

    I'm printing a lot in Ultimachine PLA now too; I like some of the colors better, the cost is a little lower, and shipping is very quick in the US. The output quality can be equally good as the Printbl PLA, but the material is not quite as forgiving when your print settings are incorrect - when you increase speed or layer height, adjusting the temperature to compensate for the higher flow rates is much more important.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
