colorFabb PLA Economy is an option for those looking to maintain the high quality standards that colorFabb adheres to but without the special performance characteristics of their other filament. The economy PLA is provided on large spools and in large quantities of 2.2kg so that you get more value per kilogram out of your purchase.
Note that the spool size is much larger than can fit on nearly any standard printer spool holder. So, you will need to print one. OD is 300mm, Bore is 52mm, and width is 102mm. ColorFabb has shared their design for a spool holder here.
Colorfabb PLA Economy

Why do we like this material and what do we use it for? Polyalchemy Elixir has a uniquely pearlescent appearance. It is a great choice for unique effects on aesthetic print and it is easy to print. We consider this to be a great choice for visual effect, but find it is not well suited for structural prints. Try printing something like a Julia vase as your first part and you will be amazed.
Print easily and flawlessly with the Materio3D PLA, a Canadian-made high-quality 3D printing filament.
Materio3D PLA uses the NatureWorks Ingeo 3D850 polymer, specially engineered for 3D printing. It is tougher and stronger than standard PLA and can be annealed for improved heat resistance and toughness!
Ease-of-use and a large selection of colors for great prints, every time!
