0.75kg of Red Soft PLA filament. Soft PLA is a flexible 3D printing material that feels and acts much like rubber. Since it is very flexible, you can make all sorts of unique items such as: tires, machine parts or kids toys. Use it for stoppers, springs, bands or anything else that need a little wiggle. The possibilities are pretty much endless! Why try Soft PLA instead of regular PLA? Because regular PLA is very stiff and does not bend well. Conversely, Soft PLA is extremely flexible which makes it impact resistant and suitable for a host of other industrial and household applications.
This material sticks great to a bed that is layered with blue painter 's tape. We also recommend that you print it at a slower speed than normal PLA. If you are new to 3D printing we recommend you start off with regular PLA since Soft PLA can be more difficult to work with.
Remember that our Soft PLA is a flexible and eco friendly product. It is a bioplastic which is a fancy way to say that it's made of renewable resources like corn and tapioca. It's also biodegradable and is much more environmentally friendly than ABS which is made of petrochemicals. That means you can feel like an environmental hero while printing your flexible new gizmos and gadgets! But seriously, when 3D printing turns into the next industrial revolution printing with bioplastics like PLA and Soft PLA will become ever more important. That way we can avoid loading up landfills. Additionally this filament has a 50% lower carbon footprint than traditional 3D printing materials.
