About

Hi everyone! 

We are looking to raise funds to buy 3D filament extruding equipment to develop our line of 3D printing filament. Our initial idea is to create a multi-color filament that utilizes 2 or more colors. This will allow for more colorful and visually interesting 3D prints.

Update (9/28): We are now offering to change out the .250 and .500 kg samples for a 3D print of your choice if you have an idea in mind or an STL file. Intended for those without a 3D printer that would like to participate in a higher Tier! Thanks!

We also were able to get together a preliminary pricing model and are proud to say we will be able to bring to market a standard 1 kg spool of a multi color PLA filament at $20 with full intentions of bringing that cost down further in the future.

Our Idea

We have been 3D printing for the past couple of years and we have noticed the lack of uniquely colored filaments on the market. Personally, after awhile, the normal RGB stock colors start to look stark in comparison to a more random and original color palette. We personally want to see a new variety of colors and have seen interest online from others.

To achieve that, we want our filament to be a of 2 or more colors mixed in together. This will also bring a random and appealing design for each spool, making each spool unique and no one print the same.

We plan on bringing this filament to the market with prices consistent and competitive to other filaments of only one color. This filament will be held to the same standard as other filaments in both extrusion temperature and diameter.

Funding Purpose

With this funding we will be able to buy the equipment needed such as the: filament extruder, filament spool winder, and  filament dryer needed to professionally produce this new filament. 

The majority of the funds will go to buying the extruder and fulfilling rewards. The extruder will  be a FilaFab Pro 350 EX, which will allow for a wide range of filaments to be developed beyond just PLA.

Additionally, a PrintDry and FilaPull will allow for proper spooling and drying. 

About Us

Ryan & Derrek designing a bottle rocket. (2010)
Ryan & Derrek (2019)

We are just two brothers, Ryan & Derrek, that have set out to bring our idea to life and share it with the world. As 3D printer hobbyists and our experience in engineering, we hope to help further the 3D universe with our addition.

Derrek is an Eagle Scout, working in network engineering, striving to bring network security and availability to his clients. He has prior training in CAD and mechanical engineering, working with small circuit boards to build custom projects.

Ryan is an aspiring Nano-Engineer, currently attending college with hopes of graduating soon. He is skilled in CAD design and has spent hundreds of hours in front of our 3D printer, tweaking and experiment with designs and filaments. 

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges we face with this project include: the delivery of rewards after funding, timely development of the filament, and quality of the overall product.

Though we strive to fulfill our promises, developing this new filament has potential unseen setbacks that could delay delivery past estimated delivery dates.

Any time-loss setbacks will be in exchange for bringing a higher quality product that you would expect of us.
