Interesting alternative filament options

Post by WillAdams » Sun Apr 27, 2014 9:48 pm

came across this: http://www.stickfilament.com/

and thought it was pretty ingenious (though pricey) --- I'd love to see a way to design an object so that one could control the colour breaks (maybe print two parts? One could be a waste or scrap to use up excess colour at a colour transition?)

Looking forward to trying Laywood filament: http://www.geek.com/news/laywood-filame ... d-1517745/

Anything else I should be looking forward to?

I have some of the wood-plastic, but I've not used it yet. Aluminium and Polypropylene (PP?) sounds interesting.
