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