Happy 2019! First, Jonah and I really want to say a huge thanks to all of our amazing customers and companies we have gotten to know this year! One of our favorite things about 3D printing is the community, full of the most creative and helpful people we have ever met. The cool ideas, innovative designs, handy inventions and problem solving we get to hear about every day just blow me away and it really is one of the best parts of my job (that and packaging up your orders! :D).
I won’t do a full year recap, but here is a quick photo comparison of some organizing we've done. On the left is from when we started in January 2018 and on the right is the same space today. I think that sums up our first full year of partsbuilt.com pretty nicely. :)
January 2018 January 2019
Now on to a few exciting store updates, since we have a bunch of new products in stock:
New in Filament:
- We are now stocking the beautiful Galaxy PLA from Formfutura, as well as adding a larger variety of our favorite Formfutura filaments: ApolloX, Flexifil, and Centaur PP. We also got in an assortment of Formfutura pellets for home extrusion.
- 3D-Fuel's Wound Up Coffee Filament and their new Workday ASA
- We also have some new engineering grade filaments in stock, including taulman3d's Glass Fiber Nylon A920GF and Nylon 230, as well as Arnitel ID 2060-HT and Novamid-ID1030 Carbon Fiber Nylon from DSM
New in Parts & Printer Accessories:
- We have been increasing our Bondtech parts selection, including extruder upgrade kits and small replacement parts - our goal is to carry everything Bondtech offers, and we are almost there!
- Even more nozzles in stock (from Micro-Swiss and P3-D) for your MakerGear, Robo3D, and E3D hot ends
- We also have OEM INTAMSYS, MakerGear and Robo3Dreplacement parts, including print beds.
- Genuine BLTouch Bed Leveling Sensors are here!
- New Eurocel LDPE tape and polypropylene print bed adhesive. (We are always testing out new adhesives and beds, so there should be some great additions in 2019)
New in Printers:
We are now authorized distributors of both Sindoh ( 3DWOX1 and 3DWOX2X) and Robo3D (C2 and R2) printers, rounding out our current offering of printers (MakerGear and INTAMSYS) We love the offering from Sindoh and Robo3D; they are building great, solid printers, and we feel like these printers are some of the best options out there for classroom and library use.
New Sale Items:
- We have been cleaning out our workshop to make room for some new items coming in 2019, so we have a few demo units for sale: a Polymaker Polysher (I will include some PolySmooth filament, if we have some left!), Sindoh DP200 and a never used, open box Robo R2.
- GeckoTek EZ-Stik Hot 8x10 Build Plates
- Facilan C8, in both 1.75mm and 3mm diameter
