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

First box had a nice variety of different filaments. Have not tried any of them and my printer is able to use them all. So that will be fun. The TPU I got was a very pretty blue so that was cool but 3/4 of the filaments were white. Hoping for a better variety of color. I definitely understand that some of the prototype filaments don't have a lot to choose from.
Love getting interesting filament to try that would otherwise bee too expensive to get a full roll, or I had no idea even existed. Can't wait to make some fun models.
