Will a 25% Tariff on Chinese 3D Printing Filament Affect 3D Printing?

Will a 25% Tariff on Chinese 3D Printing Filament Affect 3D Printing?

The always excellent Hackaday pointed out that tariffs may be put on 3D printing filament. They looked at the Tariff List of the Second Tranche of Tariffs that will be implemented by the US August 23rd and concluded that filament coming from China would be subject to a 25% tariff. The tariff schedule states that “Monafilament […]
