Makerbot selling Stratasys P430 for $48/spool!
January 10, 2014 04:03PM
Figured I would share the discovery Makerbot is selling Stratasys M30(fortus name for the material)P430(dimension name for the material) for $48/1kg spool...confirmed by MSDS on Makerbot.com

Now how is Stratasys going to explain that to the resellers stocking & selling the same material for $280.... and how are those resellers going to explain that to their clients?

How are they going to explain it to resellers and customers? Easy, the DS2433 EEPROM that they use to chip the Stratasys cartridges is discontinued, and they're getting really expensive to procure!

:-) :-) ;-)

As a Stratasys user, this is fantastic news - who would have thought that you'd be able to get cheap third party filament from Stratasys themselves?

Would you have a direct link? I know someone who might be interested, but I can't find that product on the Makerbot website.

Thanks.

This is the new MSDS for Makerbot ABS filament: [s3.amazonaws.com]

Also note that Coex is now selling Sabic MG94 filament (which is what P430/M30/ABS+ is): [coex3d.com]

I understand that this is the same stuff that Dimension machines use, but it seems that still requires hacking the cartridges, doesn't it?

Correct, you still need to do the cartridge hack - gnurds.com has a guide: [gnurds.com]

There's also a new Stratasys user forum - doesn't seem to be many people on it, but perhaps some of them have done more with cartridge hacks: [stratasysusers.org]

looks like stratasys changed the MSDS.

I wonder if my local reseller complained because I was teasing him I could buy the material cheaper from makerbot than his cost from stratasys.

Now is stratasys actually shipping ChiMei? or P430 through makerbot?

it probably was a mistake when product was listed. it happens, and they corrected it.
