April 2019 Maker Box News

We're trying a little experiment this month.  Instead of including papers in the box, we are putting that info here.   This allows us to add new information through the month as it comes in.  Feel free to check back from time to time.

The April 2019 Explorer / Everything boxes featured the following filaments:

*Note some first month subscribers may have received different filaments for this  month. Information will be listed on the bags.

Tru-Wood Cherry from Keene Village Plastics.  This is a wood filled PLA in a slightly reddish tone.  It should be pretty easy to print on nearly all printers that can handle PLA.   KVP will be providing a discount code, but had not yet done so as of shipping time.

Carbon Fiber Nylon from Push Plastic looks like a great choice for an engineering material.  High temp, stiff, UV resistant.  You'll want a hardened steel nozzle and an all metal hot end for this material.  Push has been a great long time partner for Maker Box and has provided a members exclusive discount at the discount page.  

Amazon Basics PETG.  A number of our community members asked about Amazon Basics, so we figured we'd include it.   No discount code provided, but it's pretty cheap already.  

Printed Solid Jessie PLA.  Printed Solid has partnered with IC3D to launch Jessie PLA, named after new CEO David Randolph's dog.  While Maker Box is no longer part of Printed Solid, we plan on continuing to maintain a strong working relationship.  Discount code at the discount code page.  


The April 2019 Easy / Everything boxes featured the following filaments:

This month features the four translucent colors of PLA from Push Plastic in a 25% more bonus size.
