Best Filament Supply in USA

Recommended Posts

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

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
