Having a 3D printer without filament is sort of like having a regular printer without paper or ink.  And while a lot of printers come with some filament there's a good chance you've been printing up a storm and need something new.  That's why we've started carrying a complete line of 3D printing filament in a variety of colors!

This PLA/PHA glowFill blend 1.75mm 750g spool from colorFabb is a great material for 3D printers. This amazing one of a kind filament will literally make your work shine! During the day it's a beautiful creamy color which prints to a perfect smooth finish. In the dark your prints will start to glow like you would not believe. A special highly concentrated phosphorescent pigment is matched with PLA/PHA compound. So charge up those 3D prints for some glow in the dark fun!

For a better and longer lasting glow time print your models with 100% infill and charge up your models wiht some high power lights, or just let them enjoy the sunlight for a bit.

This filament has been tested successfully on a wide variety of printers, working well on both heated and non-heated build platforms. For those users printing on a cold build platform colorFabb advises applying blue painters (buy at any decent hardware store) to the build area. For heated build platforms colorFabb used a temperature of 55-60°C which will keep the print sticking to the platform. It can be printed straight on glass or with a bit of gluestick applied to it. They've also printed it succesfully on kapton tape with the same temperature settings. Testing showed reliable results using the all metal hot-ends, such as the E3D and the Makerbot Replicator 2 hotend. Hotends which use a teflon isolator coupler can generate adhesion to the copper filament possibly leading to clogs and is there for not recommended for novice users yet.

It's always a good idea to check what diameter and filament type your printers can handle before purchasing!
