1kg of Purple PRO Series PLA, spooled and ready for melting. PRO Series PLA filament is specially formulated for precision 3D printing and manufactured in the USA. It tends to be slightly brighter and glossier than our regular PLA, and also prints at approximately 10 °C cooler.
PLA, aka Polylactic Acid, is a multipurpose material commonly used in 3D printing. PLA is a bioplastic, which means it is made from renewable natural resources such as corn starch and tapioca products. As a biodegradable material it is much better for the environment, especially compared to petrochemical-based alternatives (such as ABS).
Our PLA is compatible with nearly all 3D printers, including RepRap derivatives and those from MakerBot, Ultimaker, Bits from Bytes, Airwolf3D, Makergear, Printrbot, Bukobot, Type A Machines, and many others.
PLA is a preferred material due to its high strength and minimal warping.
