New high performance US made 3D printing filaments with free shipping!

New Inova-2008 PETg 3mm 3D printing filament is made in the USA by Chroma Strand Labs and only $40/kg with free shipping!

PETg is one of the hottest new 3d printing filaments, featuring:

  • Shiny!
  • Easy printability
  • Low Emissions
  • High Strength
  • Very High Dimensional Accuracy
  • Very Low Warping and Splitting

This means it’s a great fit for anyone that wants strong, good looking prints that “just work”.

Inova-2008 joins Chroma Strand Labs Inova-1800 Amphora Co-Polyester as a premium quality filament. Chroma Strand blends and extrudes it themselves to give you:

  • Low dye % across all colors
  • Stringent tolerances for consistency of diameter and concentricity
  • Premium filament bases

Why do these matter? Dye doesn’t print the same as the filament base. Chroma Strand Labs goes to the extra expense to keep dye composition low so their filament prints the same color to color and batch to batch.

Check out these great new translucent colors of Inova-1800 now only $70/kg, also with free shipping!
