Need a filament fix - where?

Post by Captain Starfish »

Sadly, now that McSlappy has McSlapped the doors closed at DoDadDoes and moved onto other projects, I find myself in search of a new dealer for the good stuff.

Any recommendations for an Aussie supplier of halfway decent ABS and Nylon filaments?

Last year sometime?

I haven't been using the printer much and had stocked up, so it came as a bit of a surprise when it was all closed up.

Speaking with him, seemed the payback wasn't there for the crazy hours it was chewing out of his life to keep the site and customers well supported and he moved on to other things.

That's a shame. Customer service can be a HUGE time sink and it's hard to do well without dedicated staff.

I remembered he posted a closing down message on the site, so checked the internet wayback machine and found;

Where do we buy stuff now? Well I like Jamie from http://3dprintergear.com.au/ so contact him if need any filament – he’s got the nice ABS/PLA that we sold.
