Reduced supply of 2.85mm ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Reduced supply of 2.85mm ?

Has anyone else noticed some brands are cutting back on their support for 2.85, it's always been the less popular size but now, Spectrum (my PLA of choice) has stopped doing many of the colours and types of filament in 2.85.

 

Think i will have to move to Fillamentum, which brand do people prefer for PLA for example ?

    In the past I bought a lot of Colorfabb, but then tried Filamentum and they are also great, have nice colours and are much cheaper than Colorfabb. So if I need new spools I will buy probably Filamentum.

    i have just ordered a good few rolls of Filamentum, hopefully they won't decide 2.85 is not a good business model for them also !

    My favourite PET-G was Spectrum as well. Sadly no longer available. Using a British manufacturer now which is excellent and cheaper though.

    Really impressed, tolerances are excellent, prints come out fantastic, extremely strong and the price is amazing.

    I print with it at 235 c.
