Does the MK2 come with any Prusa Orange Filament?

Tue Apr 18, 2017 9:30 pm

In all the promotional photo's for the MK2 I always see it printing using the beautiful Prusa Orange filament. I guess I've just made a mental assumption :?: that it came with a spool or Orange or at least a large sample for printing tool/parts for the printer.

When I placed my order there was a promotion of a free roll of silver filament.

Does any Orange filament come with the MK2? If not...which Orange filament on site is the one used in making the MK2? Has anyone found a 3rd party match? (shipping from Prusa to the US is $$$)

Thanks
Robert

Prusa uses ABS for their orange parts and PETG for their black. Type of filament used for i2 MK2S parts

Tried the Shaxon and eSun ABS to see if they match. The eSun is way too light, the Shaxon (purchased at Frys Electronics) was close but just slightly lighter in color than the orange ABS that's on my i3 MKS2. Unfortunately not an exact match.

Supposedly this place is a distributor of the orange ABS from Prusa as mentioned on other link https://www.thingiverse.com/groups/orig ... topic:9307):

But they seem perennially out of stock.
