Deep Dark Forest has a nice sheen which helps mask layer lines. Its a wonderful appearance which looks like a much more expensive filament. This crocodile green can be used for any type of reptile.

I’m not sure why this appears to be more like Maker Geeks ‘In the Army Now’, perhaps they labelled the roll incorrectly or perhaps their website photos are very wrong. This is the second or third color which does not match their site. I will try to contact Maker Geeks for a better understanding.

Maker Geeks Raptor Series is a High Temp PLA which means you can anneal it to exceed the performance of ABS.

Maker Geeks is a made in USA filament with free shipping for all orders to the US. They have a wide selection and offer everything from PLA, ABS, PETG, TPU (flex), and specialty filaments. Maker Geeks is sold in 1KG sizes on plastic spools. They also offer Grab Bag filaments at discount and a monthly 2 roll subscription.
