New supplier with a new print material


I’ve found a print materials supplier that seems very interesting.  printbl.com carries 3mm PLA, and has a wide variety of colors available.  They also have two different kinds of impact-enhanced PLAs which supposedly are less brittle than standard PLAs, and they have some glow-in-the-dark stuff.
The high impact plastics (only available in black or white) are particularly interesting if you have need for them. No idea if they’re better than ABS or not.
All of their stuff is $48/kg so it’s not the cheapest stuff out ther ebut it ain’t bad.  If you want to be able to choose between Lime Green, Kiwi Green or Emerald (and many other choices) they seem worth checking out. I may give them a try at some point (though I have a TON of filament on hand right now).
