3D printer manufacturer MakerBot has announced the availability of no less than nine new colors of plastic filament, suitable for use in not only their 3D printers, but any others that use the same diameter of plastic filament. 
The new colors are pretty awesome: 
  • Slate Gray
  • Stone
  • Helsinki Sky (a very light blue)
  • Green Sea
  • Grape Candy
  • Navy Wool
  • Dark Sanguine Red
  • Acid Lake (a very light turquoise)
  • Deep Dark Teal
We suspect they’re marketing these new colors to complement the ongoing development of multicolor printing on their two-extruder Replicator machine. What could be better than printing a bust of your neighbor in Helsinki Sky and Dark Sanguine Red?
