Description
Find out what you could print with your free sample here!

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 £3.99 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 65.00 GBP.

We do not hold Food Safety Certificates.Some of the raw materials used to produce our filaments are food safe accordingly to European regulations, but our filament in it's final form is not officially approved. Neither is the 3D printing process and all the components of 3D printers.

Excellent.

The PLA filament is excellent quality. I love it. The only bad point is that it doesn't come with a roll to keep it still and organised...

Great Quality Filament

Printing rigid.ink PLA with a Prusa i3 MK2S was as easy as I had been led to expect, even with a default that was above the rigid.ink recommendation of 180C (I used Prusa’s PLA default of 210C hotend, 50C bed). The finish was smooth, the layer adhesion was very good, and I am all in all quite satisfied with the sample.

Looking forward to trying their proprietary flexible PLA formulation sometime. :)
