Hey guys,

Where are you sourcing your filament from? I've been comparing prices from the US (I'm going there in a couple of weeks and thought it would be cheaper) to ebay and with Oz RepRap... Oz RepRap is way cheaper than local prices in the US! And cheaper than anything I can find on ebay! I think that's a first in the history of the universe that something is cheaper in Oz than anywhere else!


Cheers,

Yeah, I just ordered some from Tony at OzRepRap. I hope he gets more ABS in.

I did see one rainbow pack of ABS on fleabay, but I hesitate to place an order that large with a seller with only a feedback of 8.

Ordered some yellow ABS and a rainbow pack of PLA from OzRepRap.
Got email that yellow was also out of stock (black & red already marked as out of stock on page).

So waiting on new stock to arrive hopefully next week.

Edit: New stock of Black arrived. Tony shipping it today 17th . Wish my printrbot was here as well ;)

I ordered a few rolls from http://www.repraper.com/ last week as a test. Slightly cheaper than OzRepRap, with more options in terms of colours etc, but obviously less peace of mind... we shall see what turns up...

I've also brought up the topic of a group buy with Brook. He was positive on being able to do something, but is still drowning finishing up the KS, so it won't be for a month or so at least I'm guessing. I actually got some filament from him at MakerFaire and the natural I got was very different to the filament that shipped with my PB - though it all apparently comes from protoparadigm.

Now that I have a working printrboard I'm burning (melting) through filament like there's no tomorrow. Also waiting for filabot - have been saving all my mistakes... ;-)

I was just checking out Repraper.com and saw the conductive filament. Does anyone know anything about this stuff?
How important is it to have a precise diameter on the filament?

shipping on repraper.com is $27.84 and 1kg of 3mm filament in white costs $14.

Why is shipping so high? That's almost double the filament cost.

I just ordered 3Kg (Blue ABS,Red ABS and Glow In Dark Green ABS) from repraper.com - Total $85.60USD, which was $90.56AUD - Filament was $38USD so shipping was around $48USD

So that gives me 2.5Kg of Black ABS, and the above ABS. Oh, and the rainbow pack of PLA. Should keep me going for a little while.

I added 2 rolls of ABS to my REPRAPER order.
FYI here is what he said about delivery.
"For 5~10kg order, the delivery cost is 11$/kg, the ABS 3.0mm is 14$/kg. So the total is 25$ including delivery cost"
Somewhere else they mentioned the packing weight - not sure if this is normally included in the $11.

Anyway I hope this stuff is better than what I have - at $14/kg I'm not betting on it.

That delivery cost seems very expensive from repraper.com

Ultimachine delivery cost is around 10 bucks and even if you add more filament it stays the same. Although I can't speak for their filament quality, haven't ordered any filament yet.

Well, it seems no worse than the other ABS I've got from Brook (2 different types of natural and some red). I got purple, blue and silver from repraper.com and have done a few quick test prints with the purple and it's ok. The filament measures 2.98x2.9 and comes on small spools for each Kg you buy. I didn't weigh the spools, but they were as full as you see on their website. Going to buy some PVC piping to make a filament stand next.

I can't see any reason at the moment not to at least give them a go, but YMMV as with anything.

I got my 7Kgs from repraper.com today.
I'm printing with black ABS and it seems pretty good. The sizing for the first part of the roll was very close to 3mm.
I'm happy so far.

I got some blue as well, but haven't tried that out yet. The silver was pretty nice that I used for the big-ass bolt pencil case.

I'm now running a small fan heater in my little project room and as long as I let it get the room temp up before starting I'm finding it helps a great deal.

Have you tried drying it out in an oven or something similar? I think I've heard cases where absorbed water turns into steam inside the hotend and causes bubbles like you're talking about. It was probably a conversation over on reprap.org, but I don't have a link to it.

Here is *A* thread about a similar problem. Bubbles in a suppliers filament were causing blobbing and spitting due to gas trapped in the filament:

FWIW I printed with my blue and didn't have any troubles - the prints came out as I expected and there wasn't any bubbles or anything else that would make me think it was worse than the purple or silver I got from repraper.

The outer windings of the spool would've been the most exposed to air and would've absorbed more moisture than the center.
A 5C difference is significant. That jump in temperature is easily enough to make the volume of the steam rise by more than 10%. The hotter you get, the more problems that moisture or air in your filament is going to cause. It genererally pays to lower your hot end temperature to the minimum temperature that is required to print reliably with your filament.
