The quality of a 3D printed product is only as good as the material you’re using to manufacture it, and using an excellent 3D printer doesn’t hurt, either. A new 3D printing filament supplier based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, offers both of these products. 3D Printing Canada is poised to become one of the country’s best providers of filaments, along with resins and 3D printers from Wanhao. Good news for anyone who needs high-quality filament – this week, the retail and online store is having its official grand opening.

3D Printing Canada is a subsidiary of engineering and design company N3 Technologies, which boasts expertise in the aerospace, automotive, and power generation industries. The company, which has over 40 years of experience in tooling design, manufacturing engineering, and CNC machining, got its start designing and fabricating specialized tooling for various manufacturing applications, including assembly, ground support, field service, lifting equipment, machining, and plating.

Many elements for these types of tooling are created with plastics, which is where 3D printing technology comes into play. According to the 3D Printing Canada website, the company “became a reality after we decided to expand our services and offer our customers 3D printed components and filaments.”

Richard Niedojadlo, Director of Operations for 3D Printing Canada, told 3DPrint.com, “We decided to open since we felt there was a gap in the market with many other competitors not holding enough inventory and we felt we would be different by stocking a lot of product and making it easier for those needing filaments locally to be able to simply pop in and pick it up.”

The company offers what it calls a ‘wide variety’ of 3D printing materials and colors, which is putting it mildly – 3D Printing Canada actually stocks more than 300 varieties of 3D printing filaments. The filaments range from the more common, like ABS and PLA, to HIPS, PETG, TPU, Nylon, Wood and fiber-reinforced plastics, and are available in a veritable rainbow of colors in both 1.75 and 2.85 mm thicknesses.

3D Printing Canada believes in offering fair prices for its high-quality 3D printing filaments. Filament prices (all in CAD) range from $21.95 for a 1 lb spool of black 2.85 mm Taulman Bridge nylon filament and $27.95 for 1 kg of transparent 2.85 mm PLA filament up to $76.95 a 1 kg spool of 2.85 mm natural Taulman Alloy 910 nylon filament. The company is currently offering its Canadian customers free shipping for filament orders over $115, and does its best to process and ship all orders within just one business day. Customers can also pick up their orders at the company’s retail location in Hamilton.

There are many 3D printing filament suppliers in the world – so why should you choose to give your business to 3D Printing Canada? For one, the company lists product quality as its #1 priority, noting that all of its products are “fully tested for maximum quality assurance,” though it does also provide a 14-day money back guarantee on all products to make sure customers are completely satisfied.

“We provide our customers with various services related to both professional and home-based 3D printers’ maintenance, supplies and training,” the website says. “No matter if you are a business or an individual hobbyist, we cater to the needs of all kinds.”

3D Printing Canada’s team of highly experienced experts understands the entire design and manufacturing process, and is always available to offer customers quick support and answers to 3D printing questions.
