Quite the opposite with my 3D Fuel Coffee PLA. Mmmmm, coffee. Bit on the pricey side at $49 for 500g.

For my Ultimaker I use ColorFabb or Ultimaker brand.
Me either. I also have a PLA Tec from Biofila, awesome material! It holds until 110°C at least.

I haven't noticed any bad odors from any of the PLA filaments I use.
Not bad odors, I'm talking about bad adhesion / bad looking of the PLA/PHA whites comparing to others colors. I heard about it a long time ago in UM forum but I can't find it. On colorfabb site reviews about those colors a couple of UM guys aren't satisfied too.

I'm actually will get 8 spoons not all defined yet:

PLA/PHA

BLUE GREY
RED TRANSPARENT (for Acetona tests, indicated by Cloakfield)
SIGNAL YELLOW
MINT TURQOISE
LILA

Special
STEELFILL / I have a Bronzefill and I love it. This steelfill should be trickier to print but I don't care. Just need an abrasive nozzle to print with without worry.

any other?

I will probably get the "white ones" with Biofila, it's actually natural colour. I wanna test their POWR filament to, looks tough!

I haven't used or tried the wood filled or other specialty filaments

PLA, ColorFabb nGen, ColorFabb XTFC (carbon fiber...really not worth the headache) and Ultimaker Polycarbonate.

White PLA can be tricky. I've had very good ones (Diamond Age - their white is pretty much like any other color PLA), and utterly crappy ones (PLA HT from Orbi-Tech). I'm not sure about Colorfabb white PLA. I think I remember it was one of the not-so-good ones, but I personally don't like the Colorfabb PLA/PHA in general. It has that strange, almost chewing-gum like consistency and prints in a stringy mess compared to my preferred PLAs.
Best regards,
Jonny

I had really good results with the Material4Print PLA.

Diamond Age is from NZ, right? I saw lot's of people that loves this brand, but I never saw a place that sells them.
It's really hard to find a store or manufecturer that ships to Brazil, because of that I'm restrict to Colorfabb, Biofila and Matterhackers by now.

A couple of years ago I bought from Printed Solid (PLA/PHA, Proto-pasta HT, Bronzefill, Taulmann Bridge and XT) but I went to US to a trip, so... I bring it back with me.

I assume your printer can handle the 2.85mm Filament? Kind of an odd size. I thought all filament was either 1.75mm or 3mm.

Actually there are no 3mm 3D-printer-filaments nor printers. "3mm" is often used for 2.85mm which is the actual filament diameter. Don't ask me which joker came up with calling it 3mm..

But...be sure to use a caliper and measure it in a few spots. ColorFabb is usually right on...but if you use other sources, it's good to check if it is +/- that

Haven't got much time to devote to 3D-printing lately...but i'm still trying to finalize an RC Tractor, a small RC bulldozer for Jr and a remixed Headphone stand...will see if I manage to wrap it up before Christmas :)

Also got a batch of Swedish made HT-PLA that i'm planning on turning into Danish-style plastic pieces :geek:



And, not related to 3D-printing, i'm trying to make some wine out of my wife's grapes :P

I seem to be getting medium demands to print stuff for friends or friends of friends. Mainly dice towers ($20) and dice jails ($10). Thinking about printing a DM Screen. Tried part of this one at 85%. Not sure if I want to continue. 8 hours each to print 2 of the 4 main wall components. Total of 18 pieces. Then there is the glue up, painting, etc.... Not even sure what would be a reasonable price for something like this (time & materials is all I am charging - not looking to profit).
