PLA starting material for 3D printing (polylactic acid)

PLA (starting material) is gaining increasing popularity due to low printing and interesting visual quality of individual prints. The material is biodegradable and suitable for printing large objects. In addition to ABS, it is the most widely used material for 3D printing, is flexible, hard and durable like other plastics. Prints at temperatures above 60 ° C may lose their mechanical properties.

Recommended print settings:

    Nozzle: 200-220 ° C
    Washer: 50 - 60 ° C
    For sequins, we recommend a nozzle of 0.47 mm or larger.

    soluble in sodium hydroxide


    low heat resistance

In general, 3D printing is primarily dependent on the printing accuracy. The accuracy of printing itself is more or less dependent on proper calibration of the printer itself. For wall printing, a thickness of at least 1 - 2 mm is recommended. With PLA, corners and transitions can be printed more sharply and more accurately than with ABS at lower temperatures. PLA under the same conditions is less resistant to temperatures than ABS. PLA starts to soften at about 60 ° C, while ABS up to about 100 ° C. ABS prints are mostly opaque, PLAs are rather glossy. So if you expect higher temperatures around the final product, then ABS is the better choice. PLA material is biodegradable, while ABS material is not, but can be recycled. PLA is more suitable for use in the food industry.
