Save with THINK! Office Solutions Quality 3D Printer Filament and Print Service
We THINK! about 3D Printing and Filament so you can focus on your business! THINK leverages 25 years of experience in the imaging industry and lean operating management to research and develop a quality line of 3D Printer filament and services designed to save our customers money.
THINK! Office Solutions retail stores in Denver, Aurora and Centennial Colorado stock high quality 3D printer filament at a low price. Our 3D printer filament is manufactured to tight tolerances and to work with a wide extruder temperature range, which helps to prevent extruder nozzle problems and yields smooth 3D models. Our 3D printer filament is compatible with most 3D printers that use 1.75mm or 3mm ABS, PLA or Nylon filament.
THINK! Office Solutions Denver, Aurora and Centennial stores stock 3D printer filament in these 3D printer specific formulated materials and diameters:
Nylon 3D Printer FIlament
Nylon is a versatile 3D printing material which prints as a bright natural to white with a translucent surface, and can absorb color added post process with most common, acid-based clothing dyes. Unprinted Nylon is extremely sensitive to moisture, so taking drying measures during storage and immediately prior to printing is highly recommended for optimal results. THINK! Office Solutions stocks a 3D-printing specific formulation of Nylon filament in 1KG rolls that are 1.75mm in diameter and come in Black, Natural (prints as a bright natural to white with translucent surface) and white.
Our 1kg spools of 1.75mm of High Strength Nylon Co-Polymer are specifically engineered for 3D Printing.
Extrusion Temperature Range: 235C-270C
Recommended Extrusion Temperature: 240C-250C
Heated Bed: Yes
Bed Material: Tape or Wood Fiber (ex. Garolite)
Co-Polymer: 4-Station-Drawn and Extruded "3D Printing Specific" Nylon based co-polymer. Specifically designed for 3D Printing applications where excellent surface bonding, reduced water absorption, tear resistance and dye absorption are combined in an easy-to-print 1.75mm line.
Chemically resistant to: Alcohols, Resins+MEK, Oils, Acetone, Most all Alkaline, most 2 part Casting Compounds.
Testers have confirmed that the following printers have had no issues printing our Nylon:

ABS 3D Printer FIlament
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is another commonly used material in desktop 3D printing. Useful for making durable parts that need to withstand higher temperatures. In comparison to PLA, ABS is less ‘brittle.’ It can also be post-processed with acetone to provide a glossy finish. When 3D printing in ABS a heated printing surface is recommended, as ABS will contract when cooled. THINK! Office Solutions stocks a 3D-printing specific formulation of ABS filament in 1KG rolls that are 1.75mm or 3mm in diameter and several color options. Suitable ABS Filament extrusion temperatures are between 210-215C.
PLA 3D Printer FIlament
PLA (Polylactic Acid) is one of the two most commonly used desktop 3D printing materials (with the other being ABS). It is the ‘default’ recommended material for many desktop 3D printers, and with good reason - PLA is useful in a broad range of printing applications and has the virtue of being both odorless and low-warp. PLA is also one of the more eco-friendly 3D printing materials available; it is made from annually renewable resources (corn-starch) and requires less energy to process than traditional (petroleum-based) plastics. Outside of 3D printing, PLA is often used in food containers, such as candy wrappers, and biodegradable medical implants, such as sutures. PLA is available in a wide range of colors in both 1.75mm and 3mm (check your printer specs to determine the correct size). THINK! Office Solutions stocks PLA filament in 1KG rolls that are either 1.75mm or 3mm in diameter and several color options. Suitable PLA Filament extrusion temperatures are 175C.
