Topic: Micro center PLA on line
In the past I have been fortunate to be going by a microcenter to buy filament.
I found myself needing a special color at least a color I have not purchased before.
I considered a roll of bay horse brown from precision 3d BUT $ 50 to get it and delivery.
So decided to try ordering on line from MC.
So a couple lessons learned. You can not use a PO box. They use fedex. I chose fedex home delivery.
We ordered Thursday evening , the packages shipped out of Fairfax Va Friday and arrived late this afternoon.
So more or less overnight delivery for $5 on a 1 kilo roll. Not bad. Fedex home service is Tues through Saturday.
The lesson here is for those who want to try microcenter filament but live no where near a microcenter in my experience no problem. I guess the only draw back would be placing an order on a Friday may take a little longer. Shipping times can vary yada yada.
It may be a North east thing But I have had good experience getting overnight service at standard ground rates from several vendors.
I somehow expected the shipment from my loca MC but no complaints on shipping time . The filament is in the printer.
