    I've got a roll of that middle, seemed to me more orange than red, seems most places are doing those shades instead of the darker reds I am use to

    Yes, I have not found a nice red yet. Either too orange or too pink.

    I was very happy with hatchbox red. It was red. Colorfabb traffic red is also very red. Hathbox red is an ordeal...2month lead time at the moment. Still waiting on my replacement spool.

    And yet every time we airbrush a model the color is -- perfect.

    No painting here. I just like to get a decent color filament to start. But I'm usually just make parts for other things/machines

    Heh, we are either making something we care about it looking the best (and we paint it) or it is something mechanical or part of a machine and we don't give a hoot what it looks like :)

    There is a wide variation amount manufacturers for filament colors. I have seen them change from the same vendor (different batches). So it can be difficult to find an exact color or shade. If you do and you like it -- stock up.

    Yes the Hatchbox red is very nice now, they must have changed the formula. The first roll I ordered a while back was very orange but the roll I ordered about 2 months ago is very red with no orange or pink tint.

    LOL Never painted anything i have made.

    And I don't care about the color much either I like to buy a different color every time lol. Though I do lean towards orange and black a lot. ( College colors lol )

    I like how parts look with Black but boy it sure is a boring filament to watch while it prints. Especially on the Black build bed of the Robo.

    My wife has ordered 12 spools now with only a few duplicate colors.

    I'm happy with maybe three colors and my airbrush but I'm easily pleased.

    FYI, I noticed with the stock spool holder i have to put it on the front of the printer or the cooling fan on the back of the printer hits the spool holder when you home it. At least with those fans Novice Expert from youtube designed.

    I kinda prefer it on the front anyway.

    Also, I retired my PrintinZ plate, its got too many bubbles and high/low spots on it now makes it impossible to print without a raft because it will click and be unable to extrude in the high spots. Running Fleks plates now on both machines with no issues.

    Well that FireTV mount seemed to be a waste of time, it works but I figured there was a remote sensor on the front. I just noticed it works through my desk and walls. lol I shoulda just Velcro the fireTV to the back of the tv out of sight.

    :)

    Tried that "Solid Red" ESUN PETG tonight.

    I would call it Peachy Orange lol its not red at all. Prints good though.

    Got octoprint and a PS3eye camera all working did a time lapse



    Example print, though this is vase mode so super thin.
