2.85 mm PLA

PLA descriptionPLA (polylactic acid) filament is amongst the oldest and still the most heavily used mediums in the 3D printing community, mainly due to its benefits as a versatile and environmentally friendly thermoplastic. Both organic and biodegradable, PLA is easily compounded with other ingredients to influence its final properties. PLA is denser and tougher than ABS, but is more brittle and susceptible to cracking under high loads. It is also less resistant to the outdoor elements (UV light and water) than other common thermoplastics. PLA can print well on an unheated surface using Kapton tape, and most 3D print stickers. For ease and convenience, we recommend using a spray such as 3DLAC on a glass bed.
