Black PLA: 3KG Print Farm Spool | Tangled Filament

$45.00 USD

Product Information

Why 3KG?

Well first, larger spools means less changeover. If you're running a print farm, you understand the burden of having to change spools every time you use a kilogram of material. You also understand the burden of having hundreds of spools laying around your print farm taking up space.

Thats why we released the 3KG Print Farm Spool. To help print farms like us, improve their operational efficiencies, and reduce waste.

The Specs

  • Standard Black PLA (Ingeo 4043)
    • This is a high-temp PLA so we recommend higher nozzle temps than normal (200-235)
  • 1.75 diameter (+/- 0.05mm)
  • 3 KG of filament per spool
  • Large Plastic Spool (12 inch diameter)
  • Free Shipping

About Tangled Filament

Yes, its really us. YouTube doesn't allow us to connect our Wixsite (www.tangledfilament.com) to our channel, so we're also listing it here on Angled. Confusing? We know. But hopefully this allows you to purchase filament without having to leave YouTube. That way, you can keep binging design videos and know that your filament is on the way.

So what is this all for? Well, in order for 3D Printing to continue to grow as a mass production technology, the cost of materials needs to decrease. Thats why we started Tangled Filament.

We believe it is possible for a U.S. manufacturer to make good quality filament for $10/kg. But, it will take a lot of small optimizations to get there. Luckily, we know a bit about making filament; we have been making it for our own 3D printing farms for years. But now we have started, very carefully, taking that production and turning it into a consumer product.

This increase in production allows us to drastically reduce our material costs within our print farms. We are then able to pass that savings on to our Tangled customers and sell the filament basically at-cost.

From there, we are continuing to optimize our production and further drive the price down, with a goal of reaching $10/kg filament. So far we've achieved a 30% reduction in price, starting at $22/kg and reaching our current price of $15/kg. 

But, Tangled Filament is about more than just offering cheap 3D printing filament, it's about creating a low-cost raw material supply chain that allows Mass Production 3D Printing to compete with traditional manufacturing processes.
