3D Materials creativity from faberdashery

With more and more people owning a home 3D printer, and then wondering what on earth to do with it, demand for novel materials will increase.  One company that designs and manufactures unique thermoplastic filament "by the metre" is cleverly named faberdashery.

For example, take a look at this beautiful dark blue filament, flecked with stardust. "Reminiscent of a clear starry night, create a new cosmos in every object. It prints to a rich blue with a hint of translucency, to reveal the subtle silver glitter."

These new filaments are unique in having certain properties such as aesthetic colours, smelling nice when printed and not made from fossil fuels.
