It is that time of year again. The time where we get together with friends and family, unwind, and prepare for the coming of a new year. This is also the time of year where gifts are often exchanged and we know how hard it can be to pick the perfect gift, especially for a Maker. That is why we have created this list of electronics, 3D printers, and filament to help you choose. This is by no means a complete list. So, if nothing here is what you are looking for then consider having a look at our website for more awesome products.

The Creality Ender 3 S1 3D Printer is a great beginner printer that builds upon the successful platform of the Ender 3 V2. It offers a host of upgrades that make it a great starter printer or replacement for an older printer. This bundle includes the Ender 3 S1 and 4 rolls of eSun ePLA-Lite filament.

CR-6 SE & 2X FILLAMENTUM PLA BUNDLE
The CR-6 SE is one of our favourite office printers, thanks to its ability to reliably produce high quality prints. It includes features such as automatic bed levelling, 32Bit motherboard with TMC2209 drivers, and dual Z-Axis. This bundle includes the CR-6 SE and 2 rolls of premium Fillamentum PLA. Fillamentum is well known for its high-quality filament that constantly produces stunning prints.
Explore our range of 3D Printers here.
We stock such a wide range of filament that it is nearly impossible to select individual filaments, as each Maker has their preference for filament colour and type. We have chosen a couple of filament ranges that we love, but if none of them are what you are looking for, then be sure to check out the rest of the range on our website.
eSun Magic and Mystic Silk PLA Filament
eSun Magic and Mystic are a unique take on multi colour printing. For the Magic filament, eSun combined 2 different colours, and for Mystic, they combine 3 different colours into one. Unlike rainbow filament these colours are combined along the entire roll of filament meaning you can create unique prints no matter how big they are.
eSun Matte Filament
eSun Matte filament is a selection of vibrant colours that have a matte finish, which makes them great for prints that need to be colourful but without the shine you get from normal or silky filaments. They have recently expanded their Matte range to include even more colours, which we have just got in stock.
