The Best 3D Printer Filaments

Best Steals

Our 3D printer filaments are already affordable, but imagine making the prices even lower this Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Unbelievable, right? Here are the best steals on filaments from our website!

  • Steal: X3D Pro PLA 

  • The material for FDM 3D printers, the filaments’ quality is crucial to the success of your prints. There’s a reason why X3D Pro filaments are our most popular, best-rated, and best-selling items on the website. In fact, our PLA has consistently been rated 5 stars by our customers due to its consistent feeding and stable printing. 

    It’s different from other PLA brands as it is stronger, more stable, and has a lower shrinkage level. It also has a wide range of colours to choose from. As it is PLA, it comes with the typical features that you can expect from this filament type: environmentally friendly, odourless, easy to print with, and versatility. 

    Discounted Price: 

    $31.96 (from 39.95) for a full roll 

    $60 (from $119.85) for a bundle of 3 rolls of random colours

  • Steal: X3D Pro Recycled PLA Filament

  • X3D Pro Recycled PLA filament is perfect for those who want to take the extra step in saving the environment.

It also prints just as well as regular PLA without the added guilt.

    Discounted Price:  $31.96 (from 39.95)

  • Steal: X3D Pro ABS

  • Professional 3D printing aficionados know that if you want functional 3D-printed items that stand through the test of time and usage, ABS filament is the way to go.
