The Maker Box Explorer plan is the ORIGINAL subscription for trying out different kinds of 3D Printing Filaments.

iconWhat's Inside

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.

THE BOX SHIPS ON THE LAST TUESDAY ON OR BEFORE THE 25TH OF THE MONTH.

Our Mission

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!

Box of chocolates

You never quite know what to expect, and generally that is just fine. It is nice to get a broad range of manufacturers and materials. My primary let downs are when there is a filament that is interesting, but can't be sourced from inside the US, and outrageously expensive to get a hold of. Also, the coupon codes, website discounts, and rewards system is not all that compelling. The current rewards program skews mostly towards redeeming for Cryptoid stuff, and not filament. Just not interested in the other offerings. Would be great if I could redeem for a free box, or maybe a spool from a featured manufacturer.

I wish I could explore more

I love the maker explorer box, however, my current version of 3D printer can’t go above 240C for the extruder (adventurer 3 version1). Likewise, since my nozzles are $30 each , I don’t want to experiment with abrasive materials. This is all stuff I learned after the fact, so I gave the materials away I couldn’t use and kept the ones I could safely use.

I’ve since downgraded to the PLA plan so that I can ensure that I can use everything that I receive.

I’ve already ordered other samples and I think there’s a market for expanding the $5 samples selections.
