The Maker Box Everything plan combines all the samples from the Easy plan and the Explorer plan with a sweet bundled discount!
The Easy Plan Half of the Box
The Easy plan half of the box features 4 samples of filament in different colors from a single manufacturer each month. The samples are normally 50g / 16m but some manufacturers will offer bonus lengths of up to 75g. The material will be PLA or something that prints at typical PLA settings. No special nozzles, enclosure, or heated bed.
The Explorer Plan Half of the Box
The Maker Box Explorer plan half of the box 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.
Fun surprises may include stickers, candy, and a coupon for a discount on your favorite filament.
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!

1st box was okay. 5 of the 8 samples were run of the mill nothing special pla. There was a glitter Petg,wood fill, and a custom pla sample as well. I was hoping to see stuff other than super basic colors from various vendors. we will see what the next few boxes bring.
Maker Box - Everything Plan
The stuff in the box is great. If I could make a suggestion Give tips on how to fix the printer if you have a failed print or tips to make prints better.
This new option is perfect for those who are looking for new materials to explore
This box has given my husband a wide verity of product that lets him try different types and colors that he has enjoyed as we wouldn't be able to just try. Our only hiccup is that we are unable to actually locate some of the product that we would like to get larger quantities of for upcoming projects.
