It’s almost Halloween, and MakerBot® is introducing three new MakerBot® PLA Filaments that might add a little spook and some glow to the Hallow’s Eve festivities. The new MakerBot PLA Filaments are available online at makerbot.com/filament and in the MakerBot Store in New York and are MakerBot® Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament optimized for the MakerBot® Replicator® 2 Desktop 3D Printer and MakerBot® Warm Gray and Cool Gray PLA Filament.
Made with a special phosphorus dye, MakerBot Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament works with any light source and glows a ghostly green in the dark. The intensity of MakerBot Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament's glow depends on the intensity of the light charging it: the stronger the light source, the better. No sunlight is required to power-up the MakerBot Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament - any light source will do. Just keep in mind that charging the MakerBot Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament takes around two to three minutes depending on the intensity of your light source. Once the MakerBot Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament is all powered up, try printing out a spooky print like a large troll statue from Thingiverse super user colinfizgig or this fun Witch’s Hat by MakerBot. The mesmerizing allure of the MakerBot Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament can be brought back again and again by just renewing the light source for a few minutes.
MakerBot is also releasing MakerBot Warm Gray and Cool Gray PLA Filament. These two nuanced colors are great for professionals using a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer, or for anyone that wants shades of gray for their 3D prints. They also work well for some spooky Halloween-themed 3D prints!
“We’ve introduced a couple new MakerBot PLA Filament colors this fall, including our beautiful MakerBot Translucent PLA Filaments, as well as the versatile MakerBot Flexible Filament and MakerBot Dissolvable Filament; it’s been great to see the cool 3D prints our customers are making with them,” noted Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “Around the office, everyone went wild for the MakerBot Glow-in-the-Dark PLA Filament, so seeing the 3D prints to be made with it will be really fun. The new Warm Gray and Cool Gray PLA Filaments will be especially useful for architects and engineers using 3D printed models to suggest the materials they're planning to use for particular sections of a structure or product.”
