I just noticed that USBcopiers.com has the real UP! filament in multiple colors. They are sold in 2 spool bundles at a decent price. they also have a six spool bundle with one of each color. You can see them at the bottom of this page, http://www.usbcopiers.com/abs-1-75mm-filament.html

Might be worth a try. I just placed my order for the green. I will let everyone know how I like it.

Octave.com also stocks official filament for roughly the same price, though they may brand it "Afinia", which is exactly the same thing as the UP! with rebranding of questionable necessity.

Yep, the non-Afinia stuff from Octave works great. It's worth noting that it does melt at a lower temp than the Up!/Afinia (to be compatible with other printers), but it's what I've been using exclusively since I got my printer.

I haven't tried that one yet but in case it melts at a slightly lower temperature the mod I made (http://www.pp3dp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=2527) will most likely resolve the issue.....

FYI, Octave has just started selling a temperature switch (similar to other things mentioned in other threads). This should work with any aftermarket ABS that melts at a lower temperature. I ordered mine today, I'll let you know how it works.

I have installed the temperature switch from Octave.com ($20.00 USD) and it works great.
It is easy and inexpensive solution (it take just a couple of minutes to install) to lower the temperature on your Up you might want to consider the Octave solution.

Here is a link to the switch on Octave: http://www.octave.com/p1173433163/Extru ... _info.html
and a YouTube video show how to install it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUplLBla-0o

I use the Octave ABS along with their switch and the prints come out great.
However the raft and supports are sometimes more difficult to remove on some models.
