This is one of those crossover questions that gets me blank stares, but has anyone found a brand/color of 3D printing filament which comes pretty close to matching Festool green?

I'm a big fan of colorFabb ngen ... it's my go-to filament.

They have a service where you can get any color you'd like:

But I haven't tried it.

I was just looking at the ColorFabb site yesterday.  I also have started using their nGen material lot.  With there custom color service do you know if you can get nGen?  They do have RAL 6018 (Festool Green) under their RAL colors that are available.

I'm using Inland 1.75mm Peak Green PLA which is just a bit lighter shade. Side by side 6 inches away the difference is pretty apparent. Five feet away is just barely noticeable. I'll try to post a picture later.

Thanks for the info!  Just a couple of years ago on the FOG I mentioned having a 3D printer and people told me there wasn't (yet) much crossover between Festool owners and 3D printer owners.

Inland is the Microcenter house brand and their filament is made by eSun which I like, I also like the price.  It's too bad that they haven't moved this particular color from their PLA to their PLA+ yet (you can tell by the recommended temperature range), but they'll get there eventually.

looks like eSun has that color in PLA+ now



Has anyone found a better color match for festool green than the one above?

I'm not sure it's EXACTLY the same color, but esun makes the house brand filament (Inland) for Micro Center which sells it cheaper than esun.
