    Question Best PLA/ABS brand for under $30 per KG

    I am planning on opening up a 3D Hubs hub, and I am buying filaments for it.
    What are the best PLA/ABS brands for under $30 per KG?
    Also, got any recommendations for a nylon brand (Not for under $30)
    Thanks for the help,
    Matherox

    Im guessing you're in the US so this might be of limited use to you.

    However...

    We sell a range of high quality filaments. Gives great results and lots of vibrant colours to choose from.

    Have a look at www.3dexfilament.co.uk or contact us at support@3dexfilament.com for more information.

    Cheers

    eBay is a good place to search for various brands available and pricing trends.

    please see other: filament for under $30 thread :-)

    in the states amazon tends to be better than ebay.

    Matherox, we sell American made PLA filament for $26.95/kg. It's good stuff too: 100% virgin material with +/- 0.05mm diameter and ovality tolerance. It's wound on a normal 8" spool, so no super tight winds when you get to the end of a spool. You can find it on our website here: http://www.fargo3dprinting.com/produ.../pla-filament/

    Instead of trying to sell you on my filament I am going to give you my personal recommendation.

    Just like you I have a 3D Hub (Adaptive 3D Printing) and ever since I started it I have used only one filament provider, Hatchbox. Hatchbox is sold on Amazon and for $22.98 per 2.2 Lb. spool it cannot be beat not to mention the variety of colors they offer in both PLA and ABS. Most, if not all, of my customers have told me the quality of their part is amazing and I think this is in part to the quality of filament that I use.

    Hope this helps.

    I have been using eMotiontech in France now for a little while and they are great. Obviously... better if you live in France.
