A Step In Another Direction

This week we rolled out a new group of products a little different from what we normally carry… 3D Printing Filament! We have been searching for a high quality filament at a reasonable price for the past few months and are happy to say – we have found it! This premium grade 1.75mm PLA will not disappoint – it is made from virgin PLA and has been tested with a wide variety of 3D printers for compatibility. Best of all, these 1KG spools still qualify for our standard flat rate shipping! For more information check out the new 3D Printing category in the shop – we will be expanding this over the coming months – so stay tuned!
