We now have 3DKordo ABS/PC filament in stock. The material consists of 80% ABS and 20% PC (polycarbonate), which gives it a higher strength and temperature resistance compared to ABS. Furthermore, it is also very suitable for outdoor projects as it can withstand UV light and many types of chemicals. It is only available in black so far.

It has previously been sparse with the colors of 3DKordo's PET-G line. This is being corrected by 3DKordo, which is why we now have a lot more colors in the range. Of the exciting ones are transparent dark green, violet, blue and raspberry. This is only the beginning; there are more colours on the way in the future.

3DKordo Metallic PLA
It's been a while since we started selling the metallic variant of 3DKordos PLA. These are some really exciting colours which so far include Copper, Gold, Light Blue as well as Gray. They print at the same temperatures as the regular PLA from 3DKordo.
