Last week we launched our newest composite, Matte Fiber HTPLA. It's pretty neat stuff! Some folks already took delivery and are loving it :-)
Proto-pasta founders, Dustin and Aaron Cram, lead the 3D Printing Industry by introducing Carbon Fiber and High Temp PLAs nearly 3 years ago. Today, Proto-past

PROTO-PASTA GIVEAWAY

Ok, i´ve been meaning to do this for a while and i´ll try to be better at making things like this happen more often in the future! And by "things like this" i mean giveaways/competitions. So during the coming months you will all have a chance to put your hands on Filament, 3D Printing spare parts/accessories, Software and actual 3DPrinters!

To kick this of we´ll do a giveaway to celebrate that the FB group has reached and passed 500 members. (And don´t worry, the next one will celebrate whatever this G+ community has reached at the time for the next giveaway/contest).
It seems that using "Gleam" is how you do thing like this these days so i´ll do that and this first one is a chance for me to get my head around how i´ll do this in the future so bare with me.

Anyway, visit the link below and enter. This time it´s the awesome +Proto-pasta will give away a spool of their CF HTPLA and a bonus.

Thanks and good luck!

Story
Tagline
"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Introduction
With more than 10 years in Additive Manufacturing, I have worked for companies big and small (Synergeering and Nike).  OEMS and suppliers (EOS and NW Rapid Mfg).  Now, I combine that experience with good friend Dustin Cram's Space-grade engineering prowess which has made ProtoPlant (www.protoplant.com) a success over the last 6 years.  We step down from the previously popular million dollar machines of decades past to work side-by-side with machines 1/100th the cost.  We are putting our technical and market knowledge to the test by bringing new materials to the masses.  We make Proto-pasta brand filament (www.proto-pasta.com) for FDM/FFF style 3D Printers (such as Makerbot, Ultimaker, and Printrbot).
