Perhaps the most commonly used material for 3d printing, the popularity of PLA Filament (or Polylactic Acid) has eclipsed other filaments because it is so easy to print with! There is no need for a heated bed, since it doesn’t warp, and printed parts end up with a smooth, glossy finish. This filament is very accessible since there is no shrinkage, and it sticks well to the print bed. Another major benefit to using PLA, is that it lacks any foul odors while printing. This is because it is a bioplastic made from natural renewable resources like corn starch, tapioca and sugarcane.
In fact, PLA is even used today in medical implants, where there is need for screws or plates that will break down slowly over the course of months. This popular 3d printer filament is biodegradable and recyclable, making it ideal for almost any use. It is strong, well supported on most 3d printers and easy to print with. Available in both 1.75mm and 3mm diameters, PLA from Printer Playground is high quality and sure to amaze.
