UPDATE AUGUST 5TH 2017
Help us out by sending us link to reviews of each site so we can make a thorough and complete list. And if you find any suppliers not on this list let us know.
We have done a thorough analysis of the entire 3D printing filament supply market and we want to share with you our research. The premise is simple. Who has the best quality and affordable filament in Canada? We have made this blog public because Seacans is proud it can provide value and its current contribution to the 3D printing community.
Add a comment at the bottom of the article about your experience so we can add it to the list of Canadian Filament Suppliers. So everyone has a easy place to take a look at all the results. It has become overwhelming with all the offerings so we need to catalog for the sake of all 3D printing enthusiasts and professionals.
For the test we have chosen ABS filament instead of PLA because it is the least expensive and we will use it as a price standard.
The Canadian 3D printer filament market has become very confusing in regards to price and products. There are more suppliers now than there are officially categorized by RepRap. We hope we help you with the following blog. We want to simplify it for everybody by looking at what really counts... What you will expect to pay at checkout.
Just below is our complete list of Canadian 3D Printer Filament Suppliers. If you know of any more let us know so we can update the list.
There are a lot of positives and negatives with all the suppliers but we needed to keep it simple. Some have the cheapest, but the shipping is expensive. So who is the best middle of the road filament supplier without needing to read this crazy long article?
Now lets take a look at our in-depth research. But first... the list.

Going to the site and annoying popup newsletter email request so had to zoom out to close the box. Bad UI and hate it when companies push for email too hard.
They also have a large amount of premium suppliers, but its not really well categorized or intuitive so it makes it a bit confusing to look at their stock.
Send us some reviews of the filament so we can link to it. We have found only one review so far from Mosaic Manufacturing
"...and the filament was absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful consistency, and sophisticated colours/finishes. Much nicer than the typical bright plasticky colours!.."
Botfeeder is one of the oldest players in Canada for supplying filament. They target the education space so they are a bit over-priced compared to the other suppliers and most users wouldn't say their filament stands out as a super quality product. They offer a typical filament quality you would expect.
Amazon is quite competitive, though its hard to find all the colours you need in one place. The shipping makes it attractive to buy from.
A2 Printer 3D looks a bit abandoned and the product offering is a bit pricey.
Robotshop is advertised in Canada, but it looks like it does most of its business in the United States. Pricey
Seacans is based in British Columbia, its pricing is competitive and shipping is too.
DigitMakers has limited offerings though its pricing is competitive, and has lots of shipping offerings.
filaments.ca has probably the best product offerings though they are a bit overpriced across the board. But if you need specialty filaments they are a good site. Lots of shipping options.
This website looks pretty sparser, pricey and a bit abandoned.
Has lots of 3D offerings. ReprapWarehouse is from Alberta and competitive for pricing.
Maker parts ... 1 product for sale?
Shop3d has a wide range of specialty filaments, might be worth a look at for some customers.
Wow! What else is there to say. Thor3d.ca
BC-Robotics has a lot of cool things for sale on their site.
Gateway 3D printing has a interesting spool offering it looks like they spool their own product.
Create-Cafe looks like its mid-range in regards to pricing.
Nice to see this on the Quebec market. The product offering looks a bit sparse but the pricing is competive. Careful about buying 1kg vs. 0.5kg. Can be bit confusing.
Uh-oh this is the shipper uses Dicom and the site is down??? Creator Fuel's pricing per roll is good value. Their shipping method is questionable. Dicom has poor reviews for shipping.
BestBuy looks overpriced so there's not much to say.
The pricing for iprint3d looks competive but after shipping its about mid-ranged in pricing.
Proto 3000 looks like it has a lot of offerings
Kijiji.ca has lot of adverts. In our experience pricing can be all over the map.
Based from United States the product is overpriced.
Staples.ca is simply overpriced.
Robo3d filament supplier
HardDesigns looks lika a good supplier but a bit pricey.
Electronicgeek.ca looks like a good filament supplier and it is midranged in price.
Revolution 3d Printer Filament has a lot of offerings. Their pricing is about mid-range.

Mostly black, blue and white. Having ordered several times I noticed that the quality/colour and sticking properties can change a little from batch to batch, but they are always quite good. The filament tends to harden and snap if let for a long period of time in humid environments, but (a) this is generally the case for PLAs and (b) the filament ships very well packed, air-tight sealed and with silica gel. Delivery and customer service truly excellent. Highly recommended.|

The black PLA is made of 2 hard paper spools with a plastic core, while the other colors were in coils. Every individual piece was under its own sealed plastic bag with a desiccant. Pictures to come. The total weight of plastic delivered is a little above the ordered 5Kg. Fair.Test of the black PLA :Consistent diameter centered around about 2.8mm. Never goes over 3.0mm. Good point for Bowden cableVery soft, difficult to break by binding. Good point for Bowden cable.Sticks very well on build surface, even on non heated glass. But doesn't stick well on itself.Not much warping encountered so far with a glass bed at room temperature, only on large prints.Takes a bit longer than other PLA to solidify once extruded (probably explain the good sticking). This might make overhangs and bridging more difficult to achieve.Some slight bendings present in the roll. Not a problem, still goes through my Bowden cable.Seems to contain some moisture (emit a little white smoke from time to time during extrusion, especially at the beginning). Did not try drying in an oven yet.Is too liquid once melted, leading to problems with high speed or thin layer prints - I have to experiment with lower temperatures to see if that helps. Bad adhesion between layers.It stinks during extrusion. Wonder if there is only PLA inside ?Test of the green and yellow translucent PLAs :Diameter is fine to go through the bowden cable. Measurements to come.Less soft than the opaque one.Sticks a bit less than the black opaque, but much better at bridging/overhangs.Warps less than the opaque PLA (IE nearly not at all).A bit brittle, the filament might break into the bowden tube (which renders retract impossible to achieve).UPDATE : it becomes more and more brittle with time (maybe because it's winter now) to the point of not being usable anymore (even on non bowden extruders).I changed my mind and would NOT buy again that PLA - the translucent because it breaks too much, and the opaque both because of its printing quality and the fact it's probably a recycled one with garbage that maybe an health hazard.Moreover, it seems esunpla is servicing more and more resellers, so you might end up with buying his PLA without knowing. Ask your reseller before buying (and consider an absence of answer as a 'yes', looks like some resellers are trying to hide their source). -DeuxVis.July 30 2011 ABS shape 1.75mm 1.67mm -1.77mm(majority is between 1.68 and 1.71mm) 5lbs/~2.3kg ???kg xyz/kg - ?? ?? Ordering was fairly straightforward, but you are currently limited to whatever color they happen to have on hand, or a minimum 20KG order and some additional wait time.From the time I sent the money via paypal, it took 13 days to receive the package in Pennsylvania, USA.There were a few issues at the customs office when it entered the country, as the shipping company they used did not do some of the necessary paperwork. After a short phone conversation and faxing a copy of the original invoice (along with a simple form) everything was sorted out without delay.The filament feels like it weighs 5lbs, and is the same physical size as makerbot's 5lb coils so I'm assuming I didn't get short changed there.The filament measures from 1.67mm -1.77mm. The vast majority is between 1.68 and 1.71mm. It has a uniform, smooth surface almost without exception.There are about a dozen small black spots on the surface of the filament. They look like tiny black abs shavings, and extrude through my .35mm nozzle without issue.I had to dry the filament for 1hr at 100C in an oven, since it was oozing quite a bit when idle in the extruder. After that, and adjusting my extruder/software for the 1.7mm filament, I started Printing.The temperature to extrude this filament needed to be set to 270C. (255C is what I use for makerbot filament)It seems to extrude very well. Overhangs/bridges are also quite successful. I was extruding it up to 60mm/s with a .35 layer height and 1.3 w/t.I hear 1kg spools are now available in paper and plastic. -Andrew Diehl|

|Faberdashery||UK||PLA||X||Xemail@example.com||This is by far the best PLA I have tried. Sticks well and prints excellently. I have tried many colours and I've been extremely happy with all. Most colours are opaque and quite nice, and there are some unusual and/or unique colours too (e.g. space marine which is fantastic). Filaments sold by the meter and do not come in spool rolls; see RichRap's review below for a photo. Nicely packed and fast delivered. By far my favourite filament. Cannot recommend more highly!|

|InDimension3 (was The Future is 3D)||US||ABS, PLA||X||Generously overweight, but not great PLA. Asked beforehand if it was the same stuff they printed with. Didn't really get a chance to print with it until recently as I purchased while prices were starting to skyrocket and I wanted to stockpile for fear I wouldn't be able to buy later. Now that I'm using it, it's pretty rough. Purchased black, blue, and "purple", which turned out to be pink. Very difficult to get to stick, leaves behind an oily residue on my glass which Ultimachine and Ultimaker PLA does not, and explains the poor adhesion. This poor adhesion makes it much more prone to lifting. Prints decently with care, experimental tweaking, and many retries. Black had extrusion markings along the length of the plastic which required some diameter "fudging" in slicer to get the volume correct. Not sure if it's improved since I'm printing with it months after purchase.|

While the price of their filament being much cheaper than most gave me initial pause, I have thus far been quite pleasantly surprised. The order came quickly via USPS Priority Mail (Ordered Monday evening and received it on Thursday). The PLA sticks to the bed well and the prints have come out consistent. I've found that the natural prints best at 195C first layer/190C for the rest of the print. I initially had some issues attempting to print with blue at this temperature, but once I upped the temperature to 205C/200C it printed brilliantly. Will update further on any other findings I come across with MatterHackers filament.|
|New Image Plastics Plastic Welding Rod 3D Printer Filament||US||ABS, PVC, HDPE, PLA||X||X||Notes: The filament was made from ABS resin produced in Taiwan. It is of high quality and delivers good prints. One thing noticed was that there is a larger than usual amount of volatiles in this resin. If your extruder hot end is left at extrusion temperature for more than a few minutes the volatiles will cook off and extrusion will not begin immediately after the stepper driving the extruder is turned on. With this filament you should run in your extruder manually for 10-15 mm of extruded thread for a 0.5 mm orifice hot end before you begin a print. Other than that, it is a pleasure to work with.Last year, New Image had a great deal of difficulty finding a broker willing to fill small consignments of ABS resin. As a result it could often be months before an order could be filled. That's changed and now filament is made within 30 days. It is important to know that New Image is a producer and does not keep an inventory of filament. For that reason, deliveries take a little longer.When you order you should call Donna directly. Do not order by email. 1.75 mm filament in ABS costs $9.95/lb.New Image does not currently produce PLA. They do also supply first rate quality polypropylene and HDPE. I have experience with both of these. That said, neither is a good material for beginners and both have a very long learning curve.|

|Replicator Warehouse||UK||ABS, PLA||X||Xfirstname.lastname@example.org||Good: • one of the cheapest supplier in Europe • 0,05mm diameter variation for the 3mm PLABad: • spool holes are too small for both Replicators and Ultimakers • PLA does not stick to 3M's blue painters' tape 2090 • unknown melting temperature, 210°C works but bridges sag a lot • creates dark brown goo (burned sugar) around the heat block • probably not natureworks ingeo • individual bags opened or poorly sealed -CornGolem. • Does stick very bad to heated glass bed and captain tape as well. -dkcookie.|
|RepRap Supply USA||US||ABS, PLA||X||X||Unfortunately, all 4 spools arrived broken, which made it difficult to handle. The white PLA is not a clear platinum sort of white, rather an ivory-ish colour. Prints well at about 185c.|
|RepRapBCN||ES||ABS, PLA||X||Xemail@example.com||Will not stick to print bed or itself. Sometimes, it works okay, most of the time, it winds up as a glob of goo around the extruder. While you can't beat the price, I will not be buying this again.-Thedingwing 02:40, 30 May 2013 (UTC).|

|ReprapWorld||NL||ABS, PLA||X||Xemail@example.com||They have some bending (one in the blue, 4-5 for the black), a bubble sometimes (mostly for the green translucent), and little bit dirt (mostly visible on the black, and few black dusts on the others) probably need to clean it before extruding.The black roll of 1,75mm have also some interruptions (it's not a continuous roll).Beside that it seems correct. -Emmanuel. Each 3mm filament is fine, they required some tweaking (average diameter) but printed good.However I wouldn't recommend the 1,75mm-black, I don't know why but the print quality is far from the other filament and the uneven diameter has finally led to a nozzle jam (fortunately the bowden tube broke before a critical failure). --Emmanuel 17:58, 28 September 2011 (UTC) I tried again to use the 1,75 black but failed again (and the min-max diameter is worse than previously measured)|

I have experimented with diameter values in slic3r and found that i needed to create a setup for each colour. its really only an issue on detailed small sized prints. i.e. figurines.Extrusion temperature varies from colour to colour for best results the range i have found is 190C to 205C..|

|wtuymqve (Xin Yu Da Plastic)||CN||ABS, PLA||X||Very nice to deal with via email, I asked for a kilogram of whatever remnants they had so I could try lots of colors, and they were happy to oblige. (I asked for no spools, and built several of thing 33492 to spool them on myself.) I'm not super excited about the white color (MakerBot's white is more vibrant) but other than that quite happy.
