Cheaper 3D Printing Filament: Caesar The Opportunity

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;

I come to bury expensive 3D printer filaments, not to praise them.
The evil that expensive 3D printer filaments do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with your own filament extruder;
So let it be with ABS. The noble 3D Printing Industry
hath told you suppliers were ambitious to sell filament at some steep prices:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath they answer’d it.

Here, under leave of Rachel Park and the rest–
For the maker is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men–
Come I to speak in expensive 3D printer filament’s funeral.
ABS was my friend, faithful and just to me:
But most suppliers’ pricing schemes suggest they were ambitious;
And the maker is an honourable man.

We hath brought many insights home to 3D Printing Industry
and Instructables DIY filament factory does not the coffers fill:
Did this in supplier’s pricing schemes seem ambitious?
When that the poor have cried, the maker hath wept:
ABS should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet 3D Printing Industry says they were ambitious;
And the maker is an honourable man.

You all did see that on the Lupercal
I thrice presented the FilaBot, FilaMaker and Filastruder?
Which suppliers did thrice refuse: was this ambition?
Yet 3D Printing Industry says they were ambitious;
And, sure, the maker is an honourable man.

I speak not to disprove what suppliers spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love them once, not without cause:
What cause withholds you then, to mourn for them?
O judgment! thou art fled to expensive filaments,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there after having a seizure,
And I must pause till it come back to me…
