Please take a moment to read this; it will only appear on your first visit (or whenever you clear your cookies). This site lets you take a look at different 3D printer filaments in all sorts of colors from lots of different manufacturers so you can get a better idea of how the colors you buy will look together.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This site does not attempt to show you the "true color" of any given filament. The goal is to show you how colors of different filaments interact under the same light.

Complementary colors are pairs of colors which, when combined or mixed, cancel each other out (lose hue) by producing a grayscale color like white or black. When placed next to each other, they create the strongest contrast for those two colors. Complementary colors may also be called "opposite colors." Wikipedia
Analogous colors are groups of three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, sharing a common color, with one being the dominant color, which tends to be a primary or secondary color, and a tertiary. Wikipedia
The triadic color scheme uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel. Triadic color schemes tend to be quite vibrant, even when using pale or unsaturated versions of hues, offers a higher degree of contrast while at the same time retains the color harmony. Wikipedia
Split Complementary color is a mix between Complementary color and Analagous color. It forms a modified triangle where one color is dominant and the other two make great accents.
The tetradic (double complementary) colors scheme is the richest of all the schemes because it uses four colors arranged into two complementary color pairs. This scheme is hard to harmonize and requires a color to be dominant or subdue the colors; if all four colors are used in equal amounts, the scheme may look unbalanced.
The rectangle color scheme uses four colors arranged into two complementary pairs and offers plenty of possibilities for variation. Rectangle color schemes work best when one color is dominant. Wikipedia
The square color scheme is similar to the rectangle, but with all four colors spaced evenly around the color circle. Square color schemes works best when all colors are evenly balanced. Wikipedia
Sometimes the specific color or filament that the site suggests just isn't available... or maybe you'd just like to try something similar! Here's Push Plastic's Terracotta and the two closest swatches in the library!
Through donations, I can continue to add filaments to this site and keep it running. It doesn't require much -- just a few dollars every now and then -- so everything beyond what I need for the servers goes towards finding new filaments to add, either ones that I just don't have or ones that are recommended to me.
If you like this site and the service that I provide enough, I ask that you consider a small donation or perhaps subscribing to my Patreon. Everything helps, and I won't bore you with the same spiel you've likely heard a million times; just know that I appreciate the fact that you're even reading this.
