Filamentive, a UK based pioneer in recycled 3D printing materials, is partnering with 3D Printlife to make its filaments available for purchase in the US with same day domestic shipping.

“The US remains the number one 3D printing market globally,” says Ravi Toor, Founder of Filamentive. “This reflects in both our web analytics as well as the tangible growth in sales inquiries from 3D printing users in the States. Naturally, the geographic barrier has greatly inhibited US customer purchases, so it has long been our aim to find the right North American Distributor; in 3D Printlife, we now have the perfect partner. Commercially, we are working with an established player in the US 3D printing market, with a strong foothold in B2B / Education channels, as well as Amazon. But more importantly, Filamentive & 3D Printlife have a shared ethos: sustainability is central to our respective business models – a mutual passion for reducing the environmental impact of 3D printing”

Printed with PLA Matte: 70% Recycled PLA with a matte finish.

Filamentive’s initial US launch with 3D Printlife focuses on five of their most popular materials: rPLA made with 55% recycled content, PLA Matte (70% Recycled PLA with a matte finish), rPETG made from 67% recycled content, rASA (50% recycled UV resistant ASA filament, for outdoor applications) and Carbon Fibre: 100% recycled Carbon Fibre PETG

All of these materials will feature same-day shipping and are compatible with just about every filament extrusion 3D printer on the market today.

“3D Printlife is proud to introduce Filamentive’s innovative line of sustainable materials to the US market.  Said Buzz Baldwin, Co-Founder of 3D Printlife. “Their continued commitment to sustainability and quality in 3d printing is exemplary, and we’re excited to offer their filaments at a price that is still in line with European levels. Beyond the sustainable nature of their filaments and packaging, the print quality is outstanding, and numerous online reviews support that. We view Filamentive as one of the leading filament producers in Europe, and we know our customers will love their material selection.  In fact, a few select customers are already requesting spools from our first shipment. Overall we could not be happier or more aligned with Filamentive’s brand and philosophy.”

As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
