Not sure if Maker Box is for you?
Why not give this intro box a try to test out how you like 3D Printing with sample lengths?
Each box will include 5X 16m long (nominal 50g) samples of filament from different brands and in different colors.
The Easy box will contain PLA or filament that prints at PLA settings all in a range of different colors. This is perfect for a new 3D Printer owner who wants to get a splash of color added.
The Explorer plan is better suited for more experienced 3D Printer owners. It will include a range of types of filaments from different brands. Nylon, Flexible, Carbon Fiber Filled, and many many more options may be included.
The boxes will also include stickers, a piece of candy, and a special discount code if they would like to sign up for a Maker Box subscription!
I bought one box for my BF and he loves it! Now I’ll buy him few months subscription since he said he’d love to try them.
I got my Mystery Boxes about a week ago, and there's definitely some interesting stuff in there. After receiving them, I decided to go through and see what was included, and there was only one thing that I wasn't excited about trying, which is the HIPS filament, and the only reason I'm not excited about it is because I don't have a dual extruder setup, so I can't use it for my printing needs. If I had a dual extruder, I'd be happy with that being included, too.
My point is that I'm very pleased with what was included, and look forward to ordering again in the future.
I ordered the Mystery Box to see what it was like to help me decide if I wanted a subscription. I went with the Easy PLA box to do a better comparison with the filament I've been using. The box had a sample from 2 manufacturers, and 4 samples in a silk-like finish from one manufacturer I hadn't heard of before. I was really impressed with how smoothly it printed and the lustre of the finished prints. I would never have tried these filaments if I had to buy a whole spool. Now I have to decide if I want to sign up for the Easy or Explorer boxes.
Nice selection of colors of PLA to try out.
