5 dollar filament
Diy filament runout sensor + m600 colour changing
The 200 gram spools used with ProtoParadigm’s $5 Filament are stabilized as a result of this. It’s not required, but it aids in keeping the spools in place. The part was made for a Wanhao i3 reel holder, but it would fit any reel holder with a 34mm ID.
This spool is the perfect size for Protoparadigm’s $5 filament sample packs. It disassembles and reassembles easily and securely using plastic-friendly threads and a locking detent. The spool ID is 50mm, and an adapter to go down to 25mm is included. The thing is…

How much stronger is pla+ really?
I wanted to take a moment to announce that Mad Maker Filament has separated from ProtoParadigm. For the past few months, the relationship between Mad Maker and ProtoParadigm has been a little hazy. It took longer than I expected, but now that some of the final details have been ironed out and there’s less work to be done getting things up and running here at Mad Maker Filament, I’m able to sit down at the computer and illustrate where ProtoParadigm ends and Mad Maker Filament starts.
ProtoParadigm had always been a small business, and after one of its members stepped down for personal reasons, the company found itself unable to carry out the required manufacturing, fulfillment, and customer service functions. Orders were being delayed and support tickets were being skipped at an alarming pace, and operations were finally brought to a halt.
I always wanted to find a way to create and produce 3D Filament as one of the owners of ProtoParadigm and the head of product production. Since I was unable to progress within ProtoParadigm’s more complicated organization and processes, it was decided that I would run and operate Mad Maker Filament as a separate, self-contained entity with a radically simplified development and fulfillment method.
Why you need to dry your filaments!
When I’m working on a project, I usually start by prototyping it in whatever dull PLA I have on hand. Whatever you like, whether it’s black, natural, or grey. Then I prefer to use colors or exotics for the final prints. Purchasing a large number of spools of different colors is costly and takes up a lot of space, particularly if you only need a color for one project.
ProtoParadigm offers 200g mini-spools in a variety of colors for $5. They’re fantastic. The filament is packaged on small 3D-printed minimalistic spools that can be used with reusable spool designs that you can make yourself. They even look amazing on a lazy susan atop the Kickstarter ones. You don’t need to have your own storage solution because the spools come in resealable bags.
With the filament, I’ve had a lot of success. It performs just as well as the majority of them. My friend was having trouble printing a roll on a Raise3D printer, and he assumed that his filament was of varying diameter. That hasn’t happened to me yet.
How much does 3d printing minis and terrain cost? and how
When defending 3D printing to critics who are unfamiliar with the hobby, there is generally only one point that cannot be easily refuted: it is costly. There’s no getting around it; it’s just too costly. After spending your life savings on a half-decent 3D printer, you’re always faced with ‘secret’ costs in the form of endless filament spools. Even if you stick to the tried-and-true PLA, don’t expect to pay less than $30 for a 1 kg spool – and that’s before delivery. Fortunately, ProtoParadigm LLC, based in Oregon, has been working hard to reduce costs on all fronts without sacrificing product quality, and has recently introduced $5 filament spools to the market. Despite the fact that these are 200g spools, they are just $9.97 per pound, which is significantly less than competing rates.
If you’ve never heard of ProtoParadigm, it’s because they’re a small 3D filament manufacturing company based in rural Oregon – specifically, Ilton-Freewater. If you’ve ever worked in a small company, you know how difficult it is to slash costs in order to compete against industrial and commercial giants, but they’ve found an excellent way to do just that: by using 3D printing to create packaging. “Businesses are increasingly being asked to cover a large portion of the cost of delivering their goods to consumers. “However, small businesses face tremendous pressure to create low-cost packaging that can minimize shipping costs because they lack the shipping capacity of larger companies,” they explain.
