What is Imperfect Pasta? #imperfectpasta

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
  • Damaged packaging
  • Overstock
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.

So how much do you get?  50-100g for $3, 350-700g for $19.99 & 700-1000g+ for $29.99.

Great, so what can you use Imperfect Pasta for?  All the stuff you would normally print with Proto-pasta.  Not the aesthetic you had hoped for?  Well, how about some reliable prototype printing?  Or how about some cosplay pieces that will be painted anyway?  Who knows, maybe you'll discover a cherished, one-of-a-kind color or a new application where color doesn't matter.  In either case, you won't know until you get some!

However you choose to enjoy Imperfect Pasta, get it while it lasts!  It's World's Best deal on Proto-pasta.  Quantities are limited, but will be restocked at random so check often!!!  And don't forget to tag us with your prints :-) #imperfectpasta

Pure Awesomeness

Bought (2) 750-1000g rolls of imperfect pasta and received well over 1000g of both a high quality white and the most awesome blue I’ve ever seen. Love this stuff!

Imperfect perfected

When you buy an imperfect anything, you usually get what you pay for. In my case, I received much more when I purchased "imperfect" filament: some of the best PLA filament I have ever used. The color was great (sparkle purple) and the print quality with my Ender 3 Pro was absolutely five star in every respect. This was a great bargain for me that will keep me coming back to Proto-Pasta to try other things as well.

Thank you for the wonderful comments. It's easy to misunderstand what we mean by imperfect. Rest assured the material is still the same quality and tolerance as the rest. It just didn't make weight on the spool, the color didn't match to our satisfaction or it was the folks in manufacturing just playing with a new color or idea.

Perfectly Imperfect

My one-off run-off was pretty darn close to the Galactic Empire Metallic Purple, maybe with a bit of darker blue mixed in for good measure. As always, it works as it should. Personally, the only issue I have ever ran into is adhesion to the PEI sheet when around the 65F-70F mark, but with a little Magigoo everything sticks down (and, releases) as it should.

None of it was sparkly but

The colours were great! We were hoping for glitter but were pleasantly surprised by the lovely non sparkly colours. It's excellent filament, prints well and is vibrant, we will be ordering more! Thanks for being awesome ProtoPlant guys!
