    Filament Suppliers NOT in California?

    Anyone have some good filament suppliers that are not in California that are reliable and have a good variety of 3mm filament types (ABS, PETG, Flex, etc)?

    I am looking for a replacement for MakerGeeks. They are having serious issues (growing pains I assume) and I can't rely on them to ship product anymore.

    It takes forever to get anything from California to here or I would go with MatterHackers. They are a backup but I would like someone outside California do to shipping times.

    Sorry, I should have specified anything but Amazon. I don't do business with Amazon as a matter of principal and the reasons are not relevant to this forum.

    Ironically, ordering from England just might be faster than ordering from California. I order periodically from tuBears (BioFila) and FormFutura and both usually go through London to New York. And most of the time I get them faster than I get orders from California. Go figure.

    Considering your location, check out Coex3D out of Appleton, WI. They ship in stock orders same or next day, and offer same day local pickup if you are in that area of the state. www.coex3d.com

    I had already seen them pop up Very limited selection of 1.75 (which I don't use). They are all but worthless for 3mm. They carry exactly 3 colors of ABS. Black, natural and white. PETG they have a huge selection of one. Clear.
