I had an idea that if I could find a nice dark green, ABS, a figurine printed with it, then vapour polished would look spectacular.
Only problem is, I can’t find any. I checked with all the usual Canadian suspects that I know (including our hosts here), no joy.
Anyone have any ideas where I could look, or has anyone seen something like this?
HI Andy, I like your thought process, Next step would be Jade translucent… Just a private thought.
I personally have not seen anything like that on the shelf since I have been working here. If it was going to be a volume thing I could get a colour match but they won’t do it for a one-off.
Does ProtoPasta do custom colours? Cannot think of anywhere you may be able to get it easily.
I have been discovering that. Thanks for the ideas, I can tell you “see” what I’m talking about (jade Yoda figure, anyone?)
I guess I’ll cast my net wider and see what I can find. I’ll update the topic if I find something.
I wonder if you pushed the “jade” idea, maybe it would be worth your while to get some made (don’t know what kind of volume that is)? You never know….
Devil Design | producent filamentów do drukarek 3D they have a green ABS apple green similar. ratrig uses it for parts. Expensive and shipping could be brutal. Prusament has a dark green petg and a neon green petg.
we used to carry a filament out of Que but the could not keep up with our volume, they had a really nice army green, was PLA but there are a lot of army green yodas floating around out there.
The other ones people would use are the Sakata oak and Maple
The Operations Manager at Protopasta wrote back to me and said:
“ You’re thinking of the darker, almost emerald green? We’ve toyed with the idea for years of creating a simple jewel-tone translucent line (think Blood of My Enemies, but for all the colors). Hopefully soon?

So, maybe soon?
That’s awesome, it is a bit of a niche but would still get some people really excited. I would for sure try some of that, dark green and a deep blue
