  • Tight quality control for consistent printing color to color and batch to batch

How to select the right 3D Printing filament for your needs:

Diameter: LulzBot, Ultimaker, Airwolf, and a few others use “3mm” filament (which is actually 2.85mm). Most other printers use 1.75mm

Weight:
Be sure to not run out. Your slicing program will tell you how many grams of material a print should require.

Material:
Premium ABS is a good combination of strength, heat resistance, and price. You will find our premium ABS to have lower fumes and warping than lower grades of ABS.
INOVA-2008 PETG features low warping, splitting, great bed adhesion, and low fumes and emissions
INOVA-1800 Amphora Co-Polyester is a premium filament with high strength, great layer adhesion
