Filament Samples

All filament samples are at least 16 meters in length.

Those looking for a sample spooler, MadMonkey designed this one and it's been my favorite so far



My apologies for the late Easy and Everything boxes this month. *kicks FedEx* - I appreciate Sliceworx for working with me to get a replacement filament sent over. Customs did finally release the filament so they'll be going into December's box.

SLICEWORX 1.75 mm PLA Filament for 3D Printers - Rocket Red color for FDM 3D Printers
Our Filament Qualities:

HIGH ACCURACY WITH ±0.02MM DIAMETRIC TOLERANCE: We are obsessed about printing consistency. Due to this reason, we have accurately processed filament with advanced quad sensor-based diameter measuring and self-adaptive control systems in the manufacturing process to ensure strict conformity to tolerances. You will notice a substantial improvement in print quality when using our filaments versus commercially available filament.

CONSISTENT SMALL BATCH MANUFACTURING: Our filament is made in-house at our factory in small batches to keep the quality parameters in control and ensure color consistency. Our colors will remain the same whether you purchase them this year or the next year!

We perform strict quality control on the molten plastic through multi filtration process and diameter conformity testing using ovality and diametric sensors.

SUPER BRIGHT COLORS: We have created RAL Code based masterbatches with high quality formulations to provide bright colors post printing. The printed parts will have a less reflective finish on the surface with zero glossy white sheen in visible spectrum of light.

PLA PRINTING PARAMETERS: For SliceWorx PLA Filament the recommended extrusion/nozzle temperature is 200°C - 220°C and bed temperature of 50°C - 80°C.  to work in perfect harmony with all common 1.75mm FDM 3D printers.

MOISTURE FREE AND BUBBLE FREE: We use a dehydration process and vacuum-sealed packaging bags for enclosing filament to guarantee a consistent and repeatable FDM 3D printing experience. Each box of filament comes with a free zip n lock polythene bag for storing the filament once printing is paused.

UNIFORM WINDING:  Fully mechanical servo based uniform winding to ensure that the filament ends are arranged neatly and there is no internal looping. Grooves to hook filament ends on the edge of our spools and end locking of filament ensures no self-unspooling occurs when printers perform retractions even when very less filament remains on the spool.

GUARANTEE AND SERVICE:  We provide a 30-day Money-back if you're not fully satisfied or if there is a defect in our products. We provide email and chat online support on all our products.

CoexNylex™ nylon 3D printing filaments bring together excellent stiffness and strength with outstanding heat, chemical and hydrolysis resistance. CoexNylex™ 3D filaments feature excellent printing characteristics including good printing speeds and lower moisture absorption than PA6 copolyamide, so you’ll get less variability during printing operations.

  • CoexNylex™ Glass is a glass fiber material containing 30% glass fiber fill.
  • Print on a solvent-cleaned surface heated to 85°C-110°C
  • Recommended print temperature 245°C-295°C
  • Part cooling fan is not recommended. It may cause layer delamination.
  • Start retraction at 1-1.5 mm at 10-30 mm/sec for direct-drive extruders and 2.5 mm at 30-35 mm/sec for indirect-drive extruders.
  • A hardened nozzle is recommended for glass or carbon filled CoexNylex™.

    Bonus Project!


    So this month I came across a device for the project that I thought was really awesome! With great awesomeness comes great costbility lol - the project part took up the entire Project & Accessory budget this month, but while it is a project - it is also an accessory! Read below for more information!

    +Nano version of the Maker Box received an Arduino Nano

    Alien3D Deck

    As mentioned, this project doubles as the accessory. While only the device itself is included and usable by itself, it has connections for additional components that allows for expanded functionality.

    With WiFi, Bluetooth, Touch Screen and expandability - I'd love to see what else you do with it!

    DSK has done an amazing job turning this device into a quick access shortcut button accessory for your computer via Bluetooth, check out his project page below as he has links for you to check out for additional functionality!

    UFO Kit Contains:

    • ESP32 Arduino LVGL WIFI & Bluetooth Development Board 2.8" 240*320 Smart Display Screen With Touch WROOM
