Why there’s nothing I quite like more than buttoning up the finest faux suede longcoat, donning my tophat and printing colorful componentry into the wee hours of the morning. There’s just something enjoyable about it that frightens people slightly. Part of that may be the amazing color assortment of plastic filament I have wrapped around my face. It’s all thanks to a wonderful new shop making the acquisition of such material a dream come true for plastic hacks and print shops alike. It’s the Faberdashery, a shop for the refined maker who delights in the wonders of 3D printing.

3D Printing Things

3D printing things indeed! This new startup, hailing from the UK, is bringing the fab to fabulous with a whole array of 3D printing filament in sizes ranging from 1.75mm to 3mm by meter or coil. They’ll shock your extruders with a variety of colors including clear, gold, silver, squeezed orange, electric blue and buttercream… BUTTERCREAM!

At Faberdashery our aim is to provide the 3D printing community with the best printing material available. We are a small and energetic company that believes in the power of 3D printing as a world-changing technology.

I have a feeling these guys are just getting started and I hope to see their idea (and geographical location) expand. Stop by and check out what they have to offer, and definitely check out their guide to 3D printing. You can also follow them on Twitter and their blog.
