NOTICE: Development stock marked as ‘Thin Spool’ is supplied on cardboard spools with a 2mm thick flange, these flanges are somewhat flimsy so not strong enough for spools runners. ‘Thick’ & ‘Kraft’ spools are 4mm thick and much stronger.

 

Changeover spools are created in the transition from one production colour to the next. Generally, there are three types of changeover spool: colour to colour, colour to natural and ‘almost’ colour. The ‘almost’ colours are mostly the same as production spools, some virtually indistinguishable, but others may taper off colour density either at the start or end of the spool.

The materials in this section are what many manufacturers blend back up to make their so-called recycled blend, we believe in the most environmentally friendly options, so would rather offer changeover spools in their perfectly usable form, at a discount.

Those listed as ‘EXPERIMENTAL’ contain large aluminium flake and should only be purchased by experienced users. They produce some great sparkle, but a large nozzle is required, 0.8mm+, hot/cold pull after use.

Description

NOTICE: Some of our development stock is supplied on cardboard spools with a 2mm thick flange, these are somewhat flimsy so not strong enough for spools runners. The good news is that we are offering these with a substantial discount via our bulk boxes. Our final release UK PLA has a number of improvements, this includes 4mm thick flanges, which are much stronger.

3DTomorrow UK PLA Filament

PLA (Polylactic Acid) is one of the most commonly used 3D Printing filaments, chosen for its good value, ease of printing and bio-based production. 3DTomorrow’s UK PLA is supplied on a cardboard spool, which is 100% recyclable, so this product can help you reduce your carbon footprint vs buying plastic spooled alternatives.

What to expect from 3DTomorrow UK PLA?

As a print service ourselves, we know that filament quality is of utmost importance and would never sell a product that we would not use. Our UK PLA filament can be used to produce excellent quality prints, thanks to great interlayer adhesion, low warp and tangle-free spooling. Another great thing about our filament is the consistent strong colours, which ensure colour match even if you have to change spool midway through a batch.

3DTomorrow UK PLA is vacuum sealed with a desiccant directly after manufacture, so you can rest easy knowing your filament will arrive in good form. We pride ourselves when it comes to environmental best practices and quality assurance, you can read more about this here.
