MCM Electronics is proud to announce that we now carry Stellar Labs 3D printer filament! These 1kg (2.2lb) spools are available in seven popular colors: Arctic White, Pure Blue, Cardinal Red, Natural, Midnight Black, Sonic Silver & Battleship Gray. You also have your choice between ABS & PLA filament available for only $19.99 a roll! With this great low price you can print out a wide variety of items all at a reduced cost, with more room to experiment!
What is the difference between ABS & PLA filament and how do I choose?
  • ABS is produced from fossil fuels and PLA is derived from biological resources, which makes PLA plastic biodegradable
  • PLA is a rigid liquid and ABS is a crystallized liquid, meaning that when heated PLA transits direct from solid to liquid and ABS transits slowly from a gel to liquid.
  • ABS is more flexible and PLA is more solid, meaning when stressed PLA will snap sooner.
  • PLA is more glossy looking than ABS
How much printing can I do with a 1kg spool of filament?
It really does depend on what all you are planning to print, but here are some general rules of thumb we found around the web
