Has anyone tried this chinese supplier and can verify their product? Or perhap can recommend another cheap supplier?

[www.3d-printer-filament.com]

Looking to buy a few spools 3-5 depending on the cheapest way to do it, shipping ect.

I am located in UK

Looks like all gloss and no substance! Where are the prices and the cart?

I use this supplier at the mo..

[www.ebay.com]

Also [www.repraper.com] is quite popular though I've yet to try their filament - you could probably get 5 kg for about $27 per kilo inclusive of shipping by Fedex.

I use mainly PLA from ReprapWorld , it's quite cheap and they have reasonable shipping charges too. Filament gives nice surface finish and adhesion, but I have found that it needs to be extruded very hot, 217 C in my Ultimaker.

[www.formfutura.com] looks to be another option not quite as cheap as reprapworld but shipping is reasonable.

What's reprapworld shipping like?

Using a European supplier means you won't be liable for any import duties.

Another cheap and good supplier for different kinds of 3d printer filaments is German company called iGo3D (www.igo3d.com)
They offer: PLA, ABS, PVA, Taulman, Laywoo-D3, Laybrick in all diameters and they seem to be actually very cheap.

I have called them last week concerning the ABS and PVA delivery time and they told me that they get everything on stock at the end of June. thumbs up

Price is ok but choice is appaling.

I'm not having very good experiences with formfutura's filament.
The ABS filament has a lot of warping problems, doesn't adhere to the printbed and has severe delamination problems on higher objects.

However, I have used the clear ABS filament from www.filamentenmeer.nl (this is filament from Repraper) and it adheres well to my bed, doesn't warp at all, no delamination, and I can get away with printing it 5º colder, my heatbed is now also set 5º colder. Flawless!
