Imperfect Pasta - HTPLA 2nds

Discount PLA Filaments

$3.00 USD $4.00 USD

Not all pasta is perfect, but if the diameter is good, it's worth printing!  Imperfect Pasta is a factory 2nds catch-all that includes shorts, off-color, transitions, development, discontinued, unreleased, overstock, and damaged packaging filament.

Each spool is uniquely imperfect, often filled with mystery and intrigue. All are HTPLA and printable with no abrasive fillers (no special nozzle required).  Some may be valued or cherished more than others, but all are available at a discount with a minimum amount of filament as described and often times, much more.
