We prefer to print with co-polyester and PLA filaments. Below are a variety of suggested filament types, as well as materials we've had issues with. If you'd like to print with a material not on this list, but of an acceptable type, we are generally willing to make a good faith effort to print. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We will do our best to print with your material, but failures do occasionally happen, especially with filaments we don't have experience with. We cannot refund or replace material lost to print failures. (Any failures using our provided material do not count against your 100g limit).
*Default Provided Material Type (Black, White- up to 50g per print; Red, Blue, Gold, Silver- up to 25g per print)
Hatchbox is an excellent all-around filament, suitable for most printing needs. This is the filament we will use unless you specify otherwise in your request.
*Default Provided Material Type (Black, White- up to 50g per print)
Amazon Basics is a fine filament which works with our printers. This filament, or Hatchbox, is what will be used unless you specify otherwise in your request.
This co-polyester material is a newer development designed to remove the downsides of PLA and ABS. It is a very versatile filament that can print with high detail; supports remove easily and cleanly (after some minor cleanup). Relatively high cost for at $40/750g
Some of the cheapest filament available on Amazon at ~15$/kg. Practical for simple shapes and prints without overhangs, bridges, or supports.
*Provided Material Type (Gold, Clear, & Black. Up to ~25g per print. Email for more info)
Flexible filament that creates non-rigid prints. Depending on the print settings, the final product can be anywhere from slightly springy to completely collapsible. Feel free to email with questions about printing with this material type.
With actual wood fibers included, this material offers a unique texture and appearance. It can be sanded, stained, and glued, opening up new avenues of creativity.
* Provided Material Type (No color options. Up to 25g per print)
Similar to LayWood, this PLA based filament has actual wood pulp mixed in to create a print that can be sanded, stained, and otherwise treated like wood.
Co-Polyester filament designed to create strong, resilient parts for practical applications. Prints have been inconsistent, often with noticeable warping. Semi-flexable final products provide a nice middle ground between PLA and Flexi. Excellent for single-width and spiralized prints.
Shiny, smooth surface material that crates beautiful sculptures and art pieces. Biodegradable and sourced from renewable sources.
Caused damage to our printer during testing. We will not print with this material.
We've had significant issues with warping when printing with ABS. Smaller prints may not have a problem, but larger prints seem to fail more often than not. Purchase at your own risk.
This material caused damage to our print surface during prior use. We will consider smaller prints, but cannot complete large items. Please email us if you want to use PETG before submitting your request.
From our experience, this filament had inconsistent width and prints failed repeatedly. Some spools may be fine, but purchase at your own risk.
From our experience, this filament was very fragile and had a tendency to break fairly frequently.
