I also ordered a 3D printer and I’ve started to look where to buy PLA. As a beginner I will not be able to tell differences between filaments, so currently I am looking at prices and known brands. Also my printer will not be able to print ASA or other high temp filaments. So I’m looking at PLA to start my journey.
I am from Latvia and EU stores might be the best to look at. I’ve looked at:
Rigid.Ink - too expensive for starters, also shipping prices are too high £24.99 for 2 spools
Das Filament - cheapest PLA - 15.95€, shipping 17.38€ for 2 spools - better option
aprintapro - quite cheap PLA - 24.00€ shipping €14,90 for 2 spools - but not that much info available, except Thomas was sponsored by them.
filamentworld.de - quite cheap PLA - 24.90€ + shipping 14,99€ for 2 spools
Have not checked all Thomas reviews, but currently I’m looking at DasFilament, if it’s true, that Thomas uses it in most cases. Next might be aprintapro, just because it is still cheap, good specs on web page, but can’t find any real reviews on youtube.
I bought a random spool on Amazon, hope it will hold till I find a good option.
