Love the idea of having colour swatch samples to show people the filaments I have available, without bringing the container boxes full of filament spools with me. This is my version of the colour samples. :)


Print the tags.
Print the ring.
Put all the tags through the ring and tape the opening with a bit of Sellotape or electrical tape.

Wow, like this idea. Getting a printer soon and think this would be a great way to record which filaments printed well and vice versa... Maybe I would use a sharpie to record which plastic it was.
Thanks for uploading this, I hope it gets featured, you deserve it.

You could use a key ring spiral design.

I really like your color samples, thanks for sharing! One thing I missed and that's why I made a remix: having two different thicknesses will show better how opaque the material is when printing thin walls.

Hey thanks for the comments. It helped me a great deal to have the colour swatch to show people my colour range, but you are more than welcome to modify the design to suit your own requirements. Glad you liked it and found it useful! :)
