Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I'm fairly new to 3D printing, and have a Makerbot Replicator 2x. With new filaments comming to market everyday, looking at 100's of different filaments can be a daunting endeavor. I chose Makerbot filiment because It seemed like the right choice for someone new to FFF/FDM. Works great and no issues I have read about on some of the other filiments. My only complaint is the price point, honestly it's a bit high compared to other filiments of similar quality (I am now experimenting with non Makerbot filament , with great success) There are a couple other manufacturers with filiment of similar or better quality for less money, but as the title says if in doubt spend the extra money, as this is a very good filiment, with good consistisy at least the spools I have used so far.
This is my honest opinion, I am new to 3d printing and dont leave many reviews,
Grate filament consistent color and diameter. However I am sick and tired of getting spools of filament that are tangled inside the spool. I get some good ones but so far I have received a total of 4 spools with internal tangles. These tangles can ruin a print in a matter of seconds if you aren't paying attention this is time and material wasted. Seriously Makerbot how hard is it to coil filament correctly? My welding wire does not tangle why does the filament.
