PLA comes in clear form, which is tinted with dyes; and solid colour that uses opaque pigments. Below is our usual colour range and a few special finishes that we do. We will make custom colours for 500m or more, and can supply any of the pigmented colours as High Impact or Impact Modified PLA on request.

Clear PLA is available in 3mm and 1.75mm diameter filaments. There is no such thing as clear ABS, so we don’t have any.

Coloured Filaments

Coloured filaments vary slightly in physical properties due to the composition and densities of the pigments used. We are sane people and while not all our pigments are biodegradable, they are all non-toxic – even the glowing ones.

    Hi, writing from France. I would like to whether you had 50 meters of a 1.75mm or 2mm ivory cordon, in the most flexible but still solid btw PLA and ABS? If so, would you have an example (could you send me a pic on my email address) ? Tks a lot, bye.

    G’day guys

    Do you have soft PLA in 1.75mm, similar to the soft PLA that the Ultimaker guys use to simulate rubber type materials?

      No, sorry. We have something better but it’s still secret. I hope to have samples ready by the end of the month, but so far it’s held my shoe together for a couple of weeks.

    Hi, do you know how well painting on white PLA works after printing? as its too hard to know where to change the colour and unreliable for detailed prints.

    • Vik Olliver says:

      The usual spray paints and model paints work well, but thin ones will run along the layers. Nail varnish softens it a bit first but not nearly as bad as it does ABS.

      Our favoured technique is to spray it with automotive filler/primer first to reduce colour bleed, sand, paint, and then varnish with clear automotive lacquer of the appropriate finish.

      Yes Charles, We have some. NZ$50 for 100m (800g). I have recently entered shiping costs for the Czech Republic into the website 🙂 For airmail it would be an additional NZ$30. If you e-mail with your delivery address we will make the invoice for you by Paypal.
