    Hi I am based in the UK working on a budget, just wanted some recommendations for filament to buy to make architectural models from white/black PLA and wood filament?

    However, as the last post I found on this subject was a year old I'm happy for this to be a more universal discussion about the best filaments :)

    Also, thanks to this sub for the excellent level of discussion and help you guys give each other. Reading around I'm going to get my first 3D printer soon - the wanaho i3 v2.1!

    I'm not in the UK but wood filaments:

    I've used hatchbox, Colorfabb, Form Futura- All work quite well. With filled materials I prefer to get a well known brand with alot of good reviews. Dont forget with filled materials you want at least a .5 nozzle- I print with a .8- to avoid clogging.

    White and Black PLA? Pretty much anything. I use the cheapest PLA I can find because....its just pla :D Nothing special and pretty well most manufacturers do a good job of making it.

    I have an ender 3 printer with it I got filaments like PLA, ABS, and TPU working well and I had a wonderful experience with it.
