Crystal Series PLA
Crystal Series PLA 3D Printer Filament
MakerGeeks is pleased to launch our all new Crystal Series PLA & PETG Filament!!
We are so pleased to be able to bring the maker community a truly optically clear, sustainable, food contact safe PLA and PETG in vivid colors! This has been a long road of development to get the colors just the way we wanted them for that true "glass like" 3D printed look; but finally we are pleased with the results and think you will be as well once you give Crystal Series Filament a try!!
We are using our best selling Maker Series resins (PLA & PETG) for this new project along with a all new translucent colorant that will have your 3D prints looking smooth as glass and as clear as a crystal.
With the Crystal Series items you'll be getting a PLA and/or a PETG 3D Printer filament that is UV stable so you don't have to worry about fading over time as well as something that is FDA compliant for food contact. All this and the easy to use 3D printing characteristics that you have come to expect from Maker Filament items.
Plus, buying this or any of the Maker Filament brand items you'll be assured of getting a quality made filament that's always made right here in Springfield, MO by our dedicated team of tradesmen and women!! You just can't go wrong with Maker Filament and Maker Geeks. Enjoy! ;)

Oh you are in for a treat... you are about to be using one of the only USA made PLA filaments in the world; Maker Filament brand PLA is here!! Maker Filament PLA is different from other PLA's you have used in the past because our 3D printer PLA filament is made using the trademarked Ingeo brand of PLA resin and extrudes perfectly in nearly every 3D printer on the market today; with no jamming, extra strong finished parts and a low moisture absorption rate compared to the other PLA Filament on the market.
The reason for this is that we use a special USA sourced PLA resin that yields a stronger PLA print, zero warp and is much less susceptible to moisture absorption so you'll have better prints from the first print all the way to the very last inch of filament on the spool; even if that takes you all year to use... you'll still have a quality filament ready to go! No more old and brittle filament going to waste; Maker Filament PLA is good to the last millimeter!!
Another reason we use this special resin is that it prints at the same temp as ABS, so if you swap between PLA and ABS in your extruder you won't have as many jams because both materials are extruding around 230c - we think you'll come to really appreciate this new special resin that you can only find in Maker Filament PLA. No heated bed required either so you can print directly to your glass, kapton or painters tape covered bed.
So; lets talk about price.... all Maker Filament is only $24.55 for 1KG/ 2.2lbs - Think about that price for a second... some retailers charge you $49 for 1KG of their PLA or even $59 for 1LB of PETG and you know what... it's all the same stuff; matter of fact we manufacturer a lot of those same brands for them right here at MakerGeeks as that's a big part of our business, private labeling for other large US based 3D filament and 3D printer companies. So why pay more... cut out the middle man and the fancy packaging and go direct with Maker Geeks and the Maker Filament brand!
As you might know Maker Geeks.com is one, if not the only 3D Printer Retailer in the USA that also makes all it's own filament in house; so we have a lot of flexibility on pricing and the ability to still give you second to none quality (click here to see our process and read about what we are doing here in Springfield, MO) we also source everything from our color to our resin to our spools to even the vacuum seal bags all inside the USA so when we say it's Made in America it is... from top to bottom!
Maker Filament PLA has been and continues to be used daily here at MakerGeeks HQ for all our 3D printing plus we have a great network of large scale industrial users that order and print with 100's of KG of our filament each week so we are always getting nearly real-time feed back from them as well as our 1,000's of Makers like you! Think of Maker Filament more like YOUR Filament... it's your requests, feedback and input that shape the brand and help us to make the best 3D Printer Filament on the market today!
Maker Filament works great with:
- Lulzbot (Taz5 and Taz Mini)
- RepRap (Mendel, Huxley, Prusa, Kossel, Rostock)
- MakerBot (Replicator, Replicator 2, Replicator 2X)
- Wanhao (Duplicator 4, 4X, 4S, 5S, 5S Mini, i3)
- UP! Plus, Up! Mini
- and many, many more... basically if it's a 3D Printer; Maker Filament will work in it!! ;)
