The Maker Box Explorer plan is the ORIGINAL subscription for trying out different kinds of 3D Printing Filaments.
Each month features 4 samples of different types of filament from different manufacturers. The samples are 16m. Different materials have different densities, but for PLA this works out to be 50g. For ABS it is closer to 40, and for some of the metal fills we have featured it is over 100g.
We strive to introduce our members to every different type of filament out there. ABS, PLA, PETG, Nylon, Fluoropolymer, PP, PC, PBT, PCTG, TPU, with many different blends, and fillers such as metals, glass, carbon fiber, kevlar, etc. All have been featured in the box. Our members are some of the most involved people in the 3D Printing community and industry and they all say that they have discovered something they have never heard of in this box at some point!

The box ships on the last Tuesday on or before the 25th of the month.
Happy with my first box. The array of samples was interesting. I am excited to find a use for the anti microbial PETG
Yet another good box came last month - I haven't tried the PC yet (no enclosure) and my printers have been tied up to where I couldn't use the PETG but experiments on the other two were certainly productive. Keep 'em coming!
Maker Box - Explorer Plan
I subscribed to my first box last month and I wasn't sure if I was going to like what I recieved... needless to say I loved my box. Ive been into 3d printing for a few years but I just recently purchased a good printer and this was the perfect compliment to diving back into the hobby.
I have only been subscribed to the box for a month, but it is a fantastic product and I loved the extra coil of filament for new subscribers!! Amazing variety and quality of filament and I love it!! Definitely holding on to my subscription!
