We are moving

After spending half a year in Horsens, filament.nu is moving to Vejle again from the beginning of January 2020. It will still be possible to pick up filament in Horsens by appointment.

Christmas and New Year's Eve

Remember that orders that must be received before Christmas Eve must be ordered by December 19. Collection of filament at Horsens address is possible by appointment until New Year.

In stock

As mentioned in the last newsletter, Fiberlogy has launched R PLA, which is made of 100% recycled material from their production of PLA. The quality is as you are used to, both in terms of how easy it is to print with the material, but also the tolerance of +/- 0.02 mm. Initially, it is launched in the color anthracite.

At filament.nu we always have good prices, and of course also our quantity discount when you buy several rolls of filament. Furthermore, we also have an offer page where you can find extra discounted filament. Currently, these are Filamentive ONE PET, Fiberlogy R PLA and Fiberlogy Transparent PET-G. Offers come and go, so keep an eye on the page.
