back to listings SME Profile: 3D FilaPrint
Welcome to 3D FilaPrint
We have a simple but important company value at 3D FilaPrint. We strive to offer a wide range of 3D printing filaments at below market prices to anyone who owns and operates a 3D Desktop printer.
Our company started in early 2013 with a passion for 3D printing and all things techy. Four years on (now 2017) and we still have that same feeling of excitement, when we see our own 3D printers making something from plastic string! Maybe like you, we still find ourselves sitting and watching, mesmerised whilst the printer is creating something either we have downloaded or have designed ourselves.
Our philosophy has always been to offer our valued customers a wide choice of 3D printing filaments at very competitive prices. At 3D FilaPrint we have made sure that not only do we have the widest selection of filaments on sale in the UK from around the world, we are also probably the cheapest. Sure you may find other sites that sell filaments at a price similar to ours, but check out the costs of delivery and you will see the difference, we offer FREE DELIVERY in the UK on all our filaments, the price that you see is the price that you pay. We are also UK VAT registered and are fully insured for all our product and commercial liabilities.
If you are a visiting enthusiast from outside the UK then we also offer the very best price for shipping overseas.
As a team we continuously endeavour to keep up with all that is new in 3D printing and remind our customers of some of the great things that have passed that should not be forgotten, like how to troubleshoot failed prints! Read and bookmark this page .
Manufacturers from around the world contact 3D FilaPrint to share news of their latest filament innovations, we then share that news with you.
3D printing filaments are changing constantly and the applications for which they are useful become even more wide ranging. Stick with 3D printing and you can be sure of one thing, “expect the unexpected”.
If you are looking to buy or need a reliable source of information on which particular 3D printing filament to buy, call us or drop us an email, we know we will be able to help.
Within education we already sell 3D printing filaments to many Universities, Academies and schools across the country including The UCL, Oxford Science Library, Brighton University, Southampton University, Liverpool University, London School of Economics, Glasgow University, Edinburgh University, Cambridge University, Manchester University and many more.

Our aim is to offer you a personalised professional 3D printing service for the best price possible.
Before you get started, please note that the printers we use employ the FDM technique. which means they stack layer upon layer of plastic material, starting from the bottom of the platform. Which means you will get the best results with straight or pyramid shape objects. Complex objects can be printed but there is the possibility that more pre-production work and additional support material may be required. However you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to discuss your requirements in more detail. As for materials, we are the UK’s No. 1 Filament providers, with 4 years filament handling experience and a wide range of materials, which you can view below. Our default settings for printing are:
- -0.1 MM Layer Height (Can be change on request);
- -0.8mm shell thickness (or depends on the print/object needs);
- -20 percent infill( or best suited for the print);
- Any settings that are different might lead to higher costs, we'll let you know.
You can choose from filaments that are specially designed for engineering, automotive, medical use, materials which have been classed as food safe within the USA (FDA approved), biodegradable or Anti-Bactericidal. Alternatively if you are looking for design work we can offer you’re the very best. Our design team have years of experience in using design tools such as Z-Brush, Blender, Openscad, Solidworks and 3D studio Max. We would love to be part of your 3D project, so please, if you have any questions don’t hesitate contact us. Rest assured we will handle your project in the strictest of confidence and will sign NDA’s if required.
