PLA

Overview

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.

    Excellent filament for the Anycube Mega Zero printer

    I was very impressed with this filament. Used the whole reel without any issues. The prints suffered very little warpping and the vertical shrinkage was less than any other filament I have used thus far. Finish is very smooth, had no snotting at all. Settings 210 deg C. speed 40 to 60m/s.
