Not sure if the best quality filament on the market is for you? We'll put our money where our mouth is. Why not order a free sample (you'll only pay £1.99 for UK or £2.99 for international shipping)? You can order a 10m length of PLA or ABS in 1.75mm or 5m in 2.85mm - please only one free sample order per customer/household.

We became so tired of the hordes of terrible quality 3D printer filaments flooding the market, we decided to release our own. You need a 3D filament you can rely on, something that won't ever jam your head and produce flawless prints, every time.

Accurately represented colours, near-perfect tolerances and excellent raw material quality was our aim. It wasn't easy, but we're confident we've produced a filament actually worth printing with. In fact, we'd be surprised if you found better.

Especially for this price.

Using the most technologically advanced equipment and the finest raw materials, we produce a consistent filament with a tolerance of just 0.03mm either side of the 3.0mm diameter we promise. We know it's good, we test it thoroughly with lasers.

Don't feel like committing to a whole KG roll or not sure which colour to go for?

This sample pack, with a total of 8 colours at 5 meters of each of either the PLA or ABS filaments is ideal. Or if you know what colour you're after, we even sell lengths in multiples of just 10 meters, allowing you to try out a range of colours at a fraction of the price. The colours you see in the images are the exact colour you'll receive. We may not have the biggest selection of colours (more coming soon!) but they won't disappoint.

Sure the quality is amazing, but what about the service?

It's fashionable to say you give great service, but ours really is second to non. Seriously, not happy with your purchase in any way? Let us know, we'll bend over backwards to help you out. So why wait? Order from just 5 metres or 1KG of rigid.ink today.

We even do free UK (mainland) delivery on orders over 60.00 GBP.

Quite Pleased!

I've had some nice results with my sample. I particularly like the colour (Purple). Handy tip: When you've finished the sample, don't throw the bag away. You can use it for temporary bed insulation, just rest it on the build plate while preheating. I did this with my CR-10 and found it slightly decreased the heating time, and increased the maximum pre heat from 80c to 92c. Of course it sinks back down to 80c when you start printing, but it's good for the first layer or so.

Afraid my printer didn't like it. At your recommended temperature of 185deg it caused a blockage.

Hi Reg, Thanks for leaving a review and I am sorry to hear that you're experiencing these issues. Could you please send me an email to customerdelight@rigid.ink with your settings and description of what exactly happened? I would like to get to the bottom of this issue and make sure you can print again, so I look forward to hearing from you soon All the best Monica

Filament is clean and feeds into my printers easily and extrudes evenly. No problems with filament quality but not been able to use much due to printer issues. Have ordered a full reel and that's the same. Will be ordering more.

Good ink

No problems vibrant colour and printed fine

Can't really tell

So finally I got time to try out the filaments I ordered to try out.
First of all - PLA. I understand that 10m peace was not enaugh for me to play around with settings and get the best out of it. True for lower printing temperature, I like the colour - the prints came out perfect, my printers unfine tuning is all that limited the quality. Wish I had more. One strange issue - after every printed piece the end of the filament fot stuck between extruder and teflon tube - I hade to take apart the extruder on my Wanhao D6 a couple of times.

As for the Plexi PLA - I guess I need some serious experience in useing it, I really thought it would be easy to print like usual PLA. The best part is, at lowest recomended settings, I got all layers to blend together so strongly - I can't rip apart...allso I had to cut the prints off the bed with a razor-knife. I'd call it crazy durable - first prints that came out lowzy, are tougher then prints I tried to to with ninjaflex and didn't mess up the extruder like with ninjaflex. In the future I see my self useing it for some "rubber" builds.
