Having a 3D printer without filament is sort of like having a regular printer without paper or ink. And while a lot of printers come with some filament there’s a good chance you’ve been printing up a storm and want something new. That’s why we carry 3D printing filament in a variety of colors!
This PLA Filament with 2.85mm diameter in Silver 1 Kg Spool is a great beginner filament with a nice, glossy finish.
It’s always a good idea to check what diameter and filament type your printer can handle before purchasing! Please note this is 2.85mm filament, not compatible with 1.75mm-only machines!
PLA is bioplastic as it’s made from renewable natural resources. Since it’s biodegradable in commercial compost facilities, you can feel good and green about whatever you’re printing. There’s less warping when printing with PLA, and it works best when extruded between 195°C and 225°C.
If you’re looking for more information on the different types of 3D printing material, here’s a great tutorial on our Learn System
- Dimensional Accuracy: ± 0.05mm
- The suggested printing temperature ranges between 195 C° – 225° C
- Does not need any special surface preparation and can be printed on an unheated bed
PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a biodegradable plastic made out of renewable resources such as corn, sugarcane, or tapioca. It is currently one of the most common materials for personal or office 3D printing as it does not represent a risk of toxicity. PLA filament is environmentally friendly and is suitable for printing 3D objects that will be in contact with unheated foods or water.
