Can anyone confirm if this.... https://shop.prusa3d.com/en/filament/73 ... t-1kg.html
is actually the same colour as what the MK3 is.
The online chat said to me it is (so I ordered some) but there seems to be mixed feelings about it. I've got a roll coming in the post but judging by the web shop picture it doesn't look as bright.
Only if they replace the spools now, because before it's just a normal orange color (Not vivid orange), the true prusa color is like Lava Orange or Neo Orange color.
I have order tons of spools in search of a good match and it's really hard to get a perfect match. However i found some good candidates inside europe and accessible to me, like:
- PrimaSelect PLA Neo Orange
(Use for non important parts) [Have transparency if printed thin height or walls, for example Vases]
- HDGlass Fluor Orange Stained
(PETG - Good for print replacement parts and other stuff, can be used as a PLA replacement, but expensiver) [Have transparency if printed thin height or walls, for example Vases]
- Extrudr MF-PETG NEON orange
(PETG - Good for print replacement parts and other stuff, can be used as a PLA replacement, but expensiver) [Solid]
For ABS i'm using FilaFarm ABS, not perfect match but very similar, much better than palid oranges that i have here...
I'm Printing the replacements parts with HDGlass, very strong and good, i can take pictures if you want to check.
To check the Primaselect neo orange PLA, please see here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2776269
PS: I can't find a single store that can provide that good orange color match in ABS, PLA and PETG... I have to order from different stores and different brands.
I'm Very happy with the HDGlass, it have a shinny look like glass. Extrudr MF-PETG NEON orange may be the most identical to prusa, it's a solid color so no glass effect.
As bonus both HDGlass and Extrudr PETG have big spools
