Filamentcolors.xyz is a digital catalog of filament from around the globe, curated with the purpose of helping people find the perfect colors for their project. We print and photograph every filament under the same conditions, allowing users to compare different colors directly. We also measure the color and report this as a hex color, and use that to calculate complementary colors, similar filaments, and even similar colors in other materials to help users perfectly plan their projects. We’re a hobby project and always growing through filament donations and partnerships, so keep checking back to find your favorite filaments!

Accessory

25 in 1 Mini Driver Set with Case

I've been in the need lately of some small screw drivers and I kept losing the tiny ones I had. I know I've done a mini driver previously, but this one comes with a lot more heads =P

Christmas Ornament Scenes

I've been catching some heat from some of y'all lately because projects recently have been pretty heavy with soldering, so I thought I'd do a couple months of easy to do and fun projects!

I saw BV3D do a video on Halloween Tea Light Scenes, so I tracked down the designer and saw that they also had Christmas themed ones. I wanted to do something a little different though, so I removed the stand, added a hole in the back, removed the tea light hole, added a part to hang it, and turned it into an Ornament that can be hung!

UFOs came with 5 x 8 in 1 Sticky Coasters to make 5 ornaments. Be sure to remove the battery slip so the devices will function, then you can swap between the 7 solid colors or a flashing cycle by pressing the button to turn it on and off. Each time you turn it on it switches to the next mode.

Peel the 3M sticky cover and stick it to the back of the ornament case with the batteries and LEDs facing inside the ornament.

Alien3D remix link contains the case only, I like for people to get the other parts from the original designer so that they can get likes and download credits, so the original design is also linked to below.
