Here is cheap filament

Postby shai » 2012-Jun-Fri-01-Jun

If you guys are familiar with alibaba.com - it's where people can find manufacturers for various things.

Some manufacturers apparently are selling per roll as well and a HELL a lot cheaper! http://www.alibaba.com/trade/search?Ind ... ent&moq=-1

Nice to see some lower MOQ on Alibaba. When I checked a few months ago there wasn't anyone with a MOQ below 20kg.


Cheers,

It won't be fun to deal with the factory though, and you'll have to have some decent knowledge in order to properly QC whatever you get from them. There will probably also be shipping from China, and quite possibly additional fees on each order. My suggestion, try it Shai and report back to us with your results.

20Kg would be fine if it wasn't all the same colour.

Even if their requirement is 20k or whatever minimum weight for order, (although many have 1 lb) you can still request them to send you 1 lb for testing to see their quality filament. I'm pretty sure they'll comply. And you can do that for each factory :D They'll never know :)

Yes ,cheap one, some one do the wholesale price for retailsale.
someone can do 1kg , not require on 20kg as minimum, but international buy is not cheap for small quantity,the delivery express fee is much high and import tax.
