Proto-pasta’s High Performance PLA with the Aroma of Cinnamon!

Availability: Only 1 left in stock SKU: 35048


Spice up this holiday or any day with Aromatic Cinnamon!

We first experimented with adding scent to Proto-pasta more than one year ago (see Aromatic Coffee HTPLA).  The idea was to take our favourite desktop process, and make it more pleasing!  3D Printing is an industrial process in our personal space so it should be neutral, if not pleasant smelling, right?  We thought so.  Well, smell, much like music, can take you away to another place.  There is a strong emotional tie which naturally leads to thoughts of holiday time.

Well, here we are in the “holiday season”.  What started as an experiment in creating Pumpkin or Holiday Spice had such a clear cinnamon influence that we’re calling it Aromatic Cinnamon HTPLA.  Enjoy a more pleasant printing experience this holiday or any day!  The dark, rich translucent brown pleases with red and copper tones depending on thickness and light.

Like our other HTPLAs, Aromatic Cinnamon can be “Heat Treated”  to increase crystallinity for “Higher Temperature” resistance compared to standard  amorphous PLA, ABS, or co-polyesters like PETG!
This otherwise odorless plastic releases an invigorating toasted cinnamon scent when heated. Aromatic Cinnamon has a deep translucence, but turns opaque when heat treated (or crystallized) for a more wood-like finish.  With a more crystalline structure, HTPLA’s Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) can be practically elevated to 120C (250F) or more depending on post-processing. This means parts retain more stiffness and form to higher temperatures, like on hot summer days!

For this improved performance, your prints should be baked in an oven until you see a change from translucent to opaque with reduced gloss.  This visual change indicates the improved performance! We’ve  seen the change take place in 5-10 minutes on thin walled parts, but can take an hour or more.  We’ve had good luck in a quality, using a “home” convection oven at 110C (225F).  Parts will get very “floppy” before becoming more firm, so please leave supports on your parts and bake them on a flat, non-radiating surface (like glass, ceramic, or composite). Parts can be baked at a lower temperature, though must be above the glass transition (55-60C) for any change to occur.

  • Available in 1.75 & 2.85 (3) mm diameter on a 500g diameter recyclable cardboard spool
  • Usable on most PLA-compatible printers, such as Lulzbot, Makerbot, FlashForge, Dremel, Ultimaker, Printrbot, and more!

No abrasive fillers, so expect normal wear with standard nozzles.

In our experience, good results were achieved using standard PLA parameters ranging from 190-230C nozzle with standard build surface preparation (blue tape, glue stick, or PrintBite). No heated bed required.

Please note:  Some shrinkage will occur in the annealing process, so dimension critical parts may need to be scaled appropriately (as much as 2.5% in our experience).

High Performance HTPLA

Parts printed great. I built an assembly which I assembled and then heat treated. The part fused together which was great.

Works in a amazing way!

The filament is pretty good, and with the settings correct, it prints amazingly! While it is printing, it gives off a wonderful cinnamon odor. However after it has printed and cooled, there is only a slight scent of cinnamon.

Not really aromatic

Hardly aromatic. The filament also had trouble printing. Seems more like a novelty than a useful filament. Will just purchase standard filament next time.

Great cinnamon ordour as it prints

A good quality PLA which offers an enticing cinnamon odor as it prints. We had everyone in the shop gathered around the printer smiling and discussing cinnamon toast. Only wish our parts still smelled like cinnamon after they printed.

Not as aromatic as I

Best Earthtone PLA on the Market! Bonus, it smells very pleasant.

Printed at 210c on our DIY printers with Prometheus full metal hotends. The first print I couldn’t stop watching it was such a beautiful color. Then my partner was in aw at the color of the Cinnamon. Said if he were going to stock up on Proto-Pasta it’d be the Cinnamon. With how many prints we did, people have asked if it clogs and we are happy to say it does not. We haven’t had one clog and it also leaves the hotend well when color changing.

Smells like snickerdoodle cookies, prints like normal PLA!

I printed a pair of the tree frog models for my wife with this filament and it really does smell nice! Not super strong or overpowering, but if you are sitting watching the progress, you can definitely smell it. I used normal PLA settings and speed on my Prusa i3MK2 and the prints turned out beautiful. Just a bit more stringing than my normal PLA, but super minor cleanup needed. Since I have two frogs, I will try the heat treating on one and see how I like the change.

Cinnamon aromatic

Fast and the filament is awesome!

PLA is easy to print, at low cost. Non-toxic and Eco friendly. A perfect starting point for people new to 3D printing.

PLA is created from all-natural renewable resources, and under the correct conditions, is fully biodegradable. This material is typically used for prototypes or decorative prints; Due to the low temperatures and ease of use, features tend to print sharper and more detailed. Its non-toxic nature means that it can be printed for food and medical applications if done so from a sterile and sanitized environment. 
However, PLA prints are prone to snapping and breaking under pressure, and become damaged and discolored from high temperatures and prolonged exposure to sunlight or water. 

Used for: Design prototypes, Plastic Cups, Medical Implants, Food containers.
