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)

Hi 3dcase,

I bought from formfutura and I`m not so happy, bought from reprapworld and not so happy also!.

That cellphone case that you printed in flex pla... from where did you buy the filament?

Thanks!

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.

    • 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.
