You will be able to order as from 2kg of filament in the color you need.

color on demandLeveraging a new and innovative production method, colorFabb is now able to meet the immediate color needs of its users. This allows the company to offer more colors than ever, whenever they are needed. To ensure the proof of concept works 60 RAL colors have already been matched with more to follow on a weekly basis.

You can also request a certain color that has not been matched yet and the colorFabb team will start the process for you. The Dutch filament maker is offering this service on spools containing 2kg of filament (the MOQ) or pellets (MOQ 5kg). You will also be able to order a color plaque to approve the color first before ordering a spool.

Pricing will start at € 75 per 2kg spool (ex VAT / shipping) with tier pricing as from 4 and 10 spools. Lead times will be 5 to 8 business days for existing colors and 2 to 3 weeks for new color matches. Note that all filaments will be specifically produced for you. Color on Demand will be available starting in June of this year. A full announcement will be made at launch.
