Polymkr also has a kickstarter going on 11 days to go as of this article, for three of their newest filaments! PolyMAX which is PLA but with ABS strength, Poly Flex (which they did give me a sample to try out!), and Polywood which is a wood "like" filaments, which is to say looks like wood, feels like wood, but isn't actually wood like some of the other companies offerings, e.g., lay-wood.
Check out the video or read the paragraph below:
|This took a massive hit to crack/crumble|
the spool itself! Filament seems ok.
|This filament had to be "cut away" from the remaining filament.|
As you can see, the shrink wrap material is fused with the filament!
Someone in shipping was a little to eager when running the hot air gun.
|Not vacuum sealed paper wrapping ripped,|
containing non spool filament (it was the pricey kind too
The second shipment I received contained some new (cheaper) wood filament $80 for 1 kg vs $80 for .25kg, and filaflex filament in some new and vibrant colors! I don't have any pics of yet from those but will be printing out some sample chips to add to my collection shortly.
I'll likely do a separate blog post to show off all of the new filaments I've printed out, at the very least in sample chip format, from the past couple of months.
Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by!
