    Easy-to-Use, Remarkable Quality, & Good to Mother Earth

    Ultimaker PLA (polylactic acid) filament provides a no-hassle 3D printing experience thanks to its reliability and good surface quality. Our PLA is made from organic and renewable sources, and because it's plant-based, non-toxic and biodegradable.it's safe, easy to print with and it serves a wide range of applications for both novice and advanced users.

    Reasons to choose Ultimaker PLA

    PLA is the preferred choice for primary and secondary schools because it's safe and easy to print with.

    • Good tensile strength
    • Good surface quality
    • Easy to work with at high print speeds
    • User-friendly for both home and office environments
    • Allows the creation of high-resolution parts
    • Ideal for models and prototypes that require aesthetic detail
    • Great for lost casting methods to create metal parts
    • A wide range of colour options available
    • Prints in dual extrusion with PVA on Ultimaker 3

    Printing Specifications

    While you can easily use the default printer settings, the temperature for PLA ranges between 190 C and 210 C, with heated bed temperatures between 60 C and 65 C. For first layer adhesion, we recommend using PVA glue or Extra Hold hairspray.

    Works With Most 3D Printers That Accept 2.85 mm

    Ultimaker PLA is tested primarily for use with Ultimaker 3D Printers. But, it will also function quite well on any other printer that works with standard 2.85 mm size filaments.

    Anyone that has used the spool of Ultimaker PLA that comes with any Ultimaker 3D printer is already acquainted with its quality. If you haven't used in it in a while, grab a spool and try it. You will not be disappointed.

    'Translucent' at best

    If you have an idea that you will be able to print a crystal skull, window, costume jewelry or water sculpture with this filament, forget it. The nature of FDM/FFF printing creates a striated, layered surface on both the inside and outside walls, as well as cross-layering within the object. This layering scatters light from transparency to translucency.
    Frustratingly, the initial test-blob squirted out by a printer creates a transparent blob. The filament is transparent, but you'll have to print walls one nozzle-width wide to make this happen.
    That said, the finished models exhibit all the strength and detail properties that PLA is known for.
