3DFillies is reliable.consistent.quality focused.
3DFillies is proudly an Australian Owned and Operated Company. Situated in Metro Melbourne, we have been serving Businesses, Students, and 3D enthusiasts all over Australia for several years with all their 3D Filament needs.
We strive to bring you the best quality filaments at the best possible price. You shouldn't have to compromise on either.
We have a dedicated team that is enthusiastic about 3D Printing and the evolution of this technology and is always here to help you. Drop us a line or contact us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
We shortened the word to "Fillies" as we were hacking away building prototypes and trying to save time in explaining things by shortening the word "Filaments". To this day, we still argue about who first produced the name, however, one thing is for sure, it has stuck. We also did a quick back-of-the-envelope calculation, and we think that we save about a tenth of a second each time we shorten it to Fillies. Based on how long we think we will live; we will have saved about 7 months into our lives. We don't know where we will use that additional 7 months, but it will be spent still arguing about who produced the name.
For our logo we had more serious concerns, we wanted something that represented reliability and creativity. We think that the logo meets that brief, and we are quite proud of how it has been received.
3DFillies was launched as a project since we found there to be a lack of quality filaments at a reasonable price. Our goal was to bring 3D Printing to everyone without the high price tag. We worked meticulously with engineers to develop each filament product for perfect quality.
In the infancy of 3D Printing in Australia, ABS was the most popular filament due to its strength. After some time, the consumer market grew with the introduction of cheaper 3D Printers and with it brought a need to support filaments that were easier to print. PLA was then the next cab off the rank. After some time, we introduced PLA and at the same time introduced larger spools.
PLA filaments grew in popularity as did our range of colours. This was however not good enough for us. We further developed our range of PLA to enhance its strength by introducing a new range of PLA called PLA+. The modifiers within PLA+ enhanced its useability by adding more bend strength by better cross-linking the polymers. With the introduction of PLA+, we also added free reusable bags, allowing customers to store their filaments to keep them away from the perils of moisture damage. We are to this day one of the only companies in Australia that provide this benefit. In the same year, we also introduced our now extremely popular PETG product.
This year saw the introduction of several new filaments including TPU, PLAFlex, PLASilk and PLAWood.
We are recognized as a business that puts customers first and will always be there for you. We operate as an online store supported by a warehouse in Dandenong South, Victoria. Whilst we do not have a showroom, we are very easily contactable and happy to provide advice to customers needing help. We understand firsthand, the difficulty that some face when they first begin 3D Printing. Over the many years, we have experienced most of the challenges customers may face, and sharing this knowledge is part of our service. The internet can be a great resource to find the answer, however, sometimes speaking with a real person can solve some issues that are hard to articulate in a search bar. Our team is ready to assist so please feel free to reach out.
