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 international version of this plan will feature the same filaments as in the domestic USA version except instead of receiving your 4 filaments every month, you will receive 8 filaments every other month. It will ship on even months. You will be charged every other month. The benefit of the bimonthly shipping is that it saves you a lot of month on shipping costs.
The box ships on the last Tuesday on or before the 25th of the month.
This months box felt far more diverse than normal with orothopedic, carbon fibre and nylon alternatives and really felt like an explorer box - keep it up.
Loved it made some flash cards with make ideas and qr codes that lead you to the stl download
Absolutely nothing. I thoroughly enjoy the subscription box and the wide variety of filaments.
Alfapro would be interesting their prerelease stuff was great.
this shipment's two months of sampes was probably my favourite so far. A really good mix of colours and filament fillings. I also liked that we got a mix of PLA and PETG and not too many of the really difficult to print materials.
