PLA & PETG Basics

Sometimes life takes you back-to-basics where you rely on a foundation established long ago. Proto-pasta was founded by passionate, caring folks with a desire to make quality filament for like-minded folks that care about how stuff is made and the people that make it. We care about you and the world we share. We're doing our best to make hard decisions and choose the next right thing while making the most of the human experience.

In times like these, we see an outpouring of need for something basic, affordable, and responsible. Our back-to-basics collection has no sparkles or fancy finishes, just high quality resin extruded into filament and wound onto cardboard spools to minimize environmental impact and maximize value because the environment shouldn't suffer when seeking the best value in times of basic need.
