Though I recently I was looking at other venders and found botfeeder.ca
Seem to have decent reviews out there, so I'm kind of curious to give them a try as well.
Do you buy any ABS from them? I bought 2 rolls, a cheap $15 one and a $30 one

The $30 took some trial and error but finally got a couple good prints with it

The $15 one is crap unless I’m doing something wrong. Everything I printed with it falls apart. The temperature range on the package is 190-230 for nozzle (seems low), and 80-100 for the bed.

I print enclosed and had to turn the nozzle up to 240 before I was getting decent layer adhesion. Then the LEGO block I printed just falls apart even though it looked decent... going to try to return it

I haven't used ABS for a long time. Just not worth dealing with the fumes and headaches it gives. Only reason I'd pick abs over petg is because of acetone bath....

So sorry, can't help.

What is the shipping cost if I only want to buy 1 roll?

Depends on where you are and how fast you want to get it. I tried ordering one roll and the cheapest shipping for me was about $9.50 by FedEx Ground. I went to Amazon and bought the same roll for about the same price total.

These places, it's not worth buying just one roll due to shipping unless you don't mind picking up.

If you don't care about the strength of the models and dont print a lot, just but it on Amazon. It's the cheapest that way.

I'm still waiting for botfeeder to send my pre-order from 2 months ago, was supposed to get it over a month ago and then they delayed it a month... Then they said it'll ship this week, but there's 1 day remaining and nothing shipped yet.

O damn ... Guess I might take a pass on them until they have proper stocks again....

My botfeeder preorder finally shipped, or rather a shipping label was created yesterday so I assume it'll be picked up today.

Pulled trigger for two thx op.
These are cheap generic merchandise, they are dirty cheap in China, much of the price is for shipping dead plastic half world, so better get cheap for cheap price.
