RS 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75mm 300g
PLA is a tough, easy to use high grade PLA type of filament, ideal for 3D printing. Slightly modified, the filament retains the typical features of PLA, but makes it tougher and less brittle. Due to a low shrinkage factor PLA will not deform after cooling. Poly Lactic Acid is a biodegradable plastic made from renewable natural resources and one of the most popular materials for 3D printing
- Tougher and less brittle compared to regular PLA
- Easy to print at low temperature
- Low warping
- Limited smell
Once you’ve purchased your filament it’s important to store it correctly to maintain its quality. Over time the plastic will absorb moisture from the air, creating small water bubbles in the filament. These bubbles when heated in the extruder nozzle will quickly reach boiling point, spoiling the print. The use of desiccant dehumidifiers to absorb the moisture is highly recommend
Due to its low tendency to warp PLA can also be printed without a heated bed. If you have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 35-60˚C.
PLA can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
Storage: Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly
