FUNFLAG 3D Printer Filament PLA 1 kg Plastic Spool-WHITE

PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic which is derived from renewable resources, such as cornstarch, sugar cane, tapioca roots or even potato starch. This makes of PLA the most environmentally friendly solution in the domain of 3D printing, compared to all the other petrochemical-based plastics like ABS or PVA. PLA is used for example in medical suturing as well as surgical implants. PLA is tough, but a little brittle, once it has cooled down. Its temperature threshold is lower than the one of ABS, as PLA is normally extruded around 160¡ãC-220¡ãC. A heated printbed is not mandatory, but it may (at temperatures around 50-60¡ãC) be beneficial to the quality of the printed object. PLA is quite slow to cool ¨C experts recommend sometimes to install a fan pointed at the extruded material in order to speed up the cooling process. Once it is heated, PLA does emit a slight odor, best described as sweet corn, pancakes or maple syrup ¨C but it does not emit fumes like heated ABS. No fume hood will be necessary and you may safely print with PLA in-house.

  1. Meh, it’s “okay” if you don’t mind using oval shaped filament… I purchased a single spool of orange to give this stuff a try before ordering any other colors. Upon checking for dimensional consistency I found that unfortunately the filament is severely out of round and measures about 1.6mm at the thin axis and 1.75m at the wide axis and varies +/- .05mm along several feet I measured. I considered returning it to Amazon and ordering Hatchbox or Protoparadigm instead but I decided to do a test print anyway.For a quick test, I sliced using an…
