Best Filament Supply in USA

Posted · Best Filament Supply in USA

I am looking to find a good quality filament supplier in the United States.

I have been ironing out the kinks in my workflow and I've found the best results with the better quality filaments - fairly understandable.

But what I've been looking for are quality filament suppliers in the USA.

I am willing to pay for the quality but am trying to avoid the shipping from Europe.

The Ultimaker HQ recommended this product, however it is in the UK: http://www.printedsolid.com/product-category/pla-pha/

What brands would you recommend?

Thanks

    I don't understand. PrintedSolid IS located in DE (or NJ, I believe they shipped my order from NJ). The filament that was recommended was Colorfabb for which PrintedSolid is a US distributor of Colorfabb....

    From their home page -

    PrintedSolid is a 3D Printing company based out of Newark, Delaware

    and

    http://www.printedsolid.com/colorfabb-3d-printing-filament-now-available-in-the-usa/

    No problems when I ordered from them, shipping was quick.

    I've also purchased from http://www.protoparadigm.com/ based on recommendations in other threads. No problem with the order and it printed well.

    If you need specialty stuff, ping Illuminarti http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/user/341-illuminarti/

    He runs fbrc8.com and also works with UM as one of the US partners for assembling and shipping the printers to US customers.

    I also did not see that Printed Solid did in fact ship to the USA now. I do think that is a first choice.

    As for the related thread, that is a good point of reference, I did not see that upon first glance.
