3D Printing Materials
This is a list of our 3D printing filaments. You can choose from any of these once you are qualified to carry out filament changes on the different machines! Each spool is labeled with a consecutive number so you can easily consult this page with any questions. Excess plastic is collected in bags labeled with the same numbers for recycling.
We try to keep things easy and recommend a donation of 5 ct per gram for all our materials - all proceeds go into new materials and printer repairs or upgrades. If you would to see a certain color or material added, please suggest it to a manager or leave a note at the bottom of this page.

If you don't know whether a spool has enough material left for your print, weigh it on a sensitive scale and subtract the weight of the spool itself to learn the amount of filament left.
