Replacement filament

Post by cadcam » Sun Dec 13, 2015 1:27 pm

I am running to the end of a largish stock of the original Up filament
Does anyone still sell the 700gm C-01, in particular white, anymore?

Or is there a different supplier which sells a similar material ?

Some people have said the Zortrax filaments are very similar is that still true.


Many Thanks

I haven't seen that ABS+ yet, is it really not good with the software set on ABS+? Are all colors going to be ABS+ and why?

And to answer your question, yes Zortrax filament is very comparable. The white looks the same and you have more color options. I mainly use original Up filament but I especially like the orange and grey from Zortrax.

And their UltraT is very good for engineering parts - very strong.

I hope there will be more OEM filament options and colors like grey.

The ABS+ is a much stronger material. Also the ABS original is no cheaper and that's my preferred material.

Well some people, such as myself prefer the matte finish of the original UP! filament.
