This is probably going to sound stupid, but does anyone know which filament would be closest to Ryobi green?

That color is called “safety yellow”. When I search on Amazon, I see a couple of 1kg spools of 1.75mm PLA filament, but they’re from Australia and expensive.

Have you ever seen their tools in person, or just the pic? It’s really a lot more green than that

Neon lime green?

I have those Ryobi tools myself and have beaten them over and over again on my projects. I love how many tools they have that take the same battery.

@Ross_Bagley okay, interesting. I have a nice set of the tools and also a bunch of safety yellow stuff for cycling and the yellow seems a lot more vivid…

This is the closest I’ve found comparing online photos to online photos… https://www.amazon.com/ColorFabb-Fluorescent-Green-PLA-Filament/dp/B010P3ICGA

I would agree that not all safety yellow stuff is exactly the same color. It’s supposed to have a very specific reflectivity profile, but there are still differences.

I would try the filament you found and see how close it is.

a quick google search tells me that the ryobi is supposed to be Pantone 376 C. What would be ideal would be to find someone who could I could order the 3 euro sample for w/o 30 euros in shipping and have them print a 1mmx10mmx30mm color sample and air mail it to me, keeping the rest for themselves.

@Tom_L I do not believe that the Ryobi tool color is Pantone 376C, i just checked my pantone chart and it seems too dark. I just thrown away my Ryobi cordless drill the other day tough, so i cannot really do a direct comparision.

I do have a spool of Colorfabb Fluorescent Green tough, and i think it would be a pretty good match to what i remember the tool to look like. It is not really a safety yellow, it is more greenish.

Fillamentum has colours according to RAL, so check one of their 5 yellows and also some greens. https://fillamentum.com/collections/pla-extrafill?page=1

@Tom_L : If you really want Pantone 376C, the Green filament from Innofil3D is a pretty close match

I have about 30 (EDIT: not 340 , that was a typo…lol)of the tools in the Ryobi set, I love them. I will see if I can find a color match for you.

Probably Lulzbot’s proprietary color would be closest. Not sure what it’s called. Probably Lulzbot Green.

Thanks everybody! I thought that Pantone color didn’t look right on the screen, but it kept coming up in the searches…

We have this in PCTPE 2.85mm only.

That’s a great match – what is it?

by which I mean, do you have a link to where i can buy it?

You can purchase this on our site by buying a spool of 2.85mm PCTPE and then send an email asking for Bright Green rather than White or Black. It comes on 1lb spools. If you need a larger spool, just contact us via the website. http://taulman3d.com
