Beige filament for 3D printing?


Well-known member
Some time ago, someone posted a link to a source for PLA (or maybe it was ABS or PETG) filament for 3D printing that very closely matched the original platinum / beige color of older Macs. I should have bookmarked it when I saw it, but didn't. DOH! I've tried to find it, but cannot find the post. I'm hoping someone remembers this and has a link. Thanks!

Someone on VintageApple on Reddit may be planning on making some as well that is a close to exact match, not sure if you saw that too.

Edit: Just saw that you search for platinum. But perhaps someone searches for the older beige macs...

Thanks all, I'll check out the links. I'm currently trying to match some "snow white" Macs so it looks like the NX-2 Grey might be close. The Solutech beige on Amazon looks good for an older Mac Plus. Awesome! Thanks!


Very nice, I'll hazard a guess that formulations for the gamut of greys used in PowerBook cases will be researched at some point?
