Aromatic Pine HTPLA 2017 Special Edition


Regular price $49.99 USD

A tradition continued - 1 family, 1 tree, 1 batch of filament!

Once again, we saved last year's family Christmas Tree, and for the 3rd year in a row, turned it into filament! It's a tedious process that starts with hours of stripping pine needles.  Next we dry the needles overnight, and when cool, crush them into a fine powder.  Finally, we add them to our plastic pellets and extrude filament all while enjoying the glorious scent of pine.
Aromatic Pine is the ultimate labor of love, exemplifying our filament-making obsession and artistry!
Made from the highest quality, dry ingredients and extruded with care in our Washington facility on our own purpose-built extrusion systems, this is indeed a very special filament capturing the essence of Christmas.  Finely ground and requiring no special hardware, this material prints like standard PLA, but has a beautiful natural color, texture, and subtle scent of pine.  Sorry the pine scent is only when warm like when heat treating or printing, but still pretty neat!
So enjoy this very special intersection of craft and technology, man and machine, handmade and manufactured.  Each spool is individually signed for an additional personal touch!  
Happy Holidays and Enjoy, Alex and the Makers at Proto-pasta
