PLA material is a biodegradable thermoplastic which is derived from renewable resources, such as cornstarch, sugar cane. This makes PLA the most environmentally friendly material in the domain of 3D printing. PLA is tough, though it has the feature of a little brittle, we tried to improve its performance during production. When printing, PLA is odorless, low shrinkage, good rigidity, excellent gloss of printed object, no heated print bed necessary, high printing speed, available in rich colors.
PLA Filament is normally extruded at around 190-220℃, with printing speed as 50-60 mm/s. A heated print-bed is not mandatory, but many users are inclined to set it at around 50℃ to get a better printing performance. Opening the fan near the extruding nozzle is usually recommended to speed up the cooling down.
Because of its feature, tough and easy to operate, PLA Filament is almost the most popular material for FDM/FFF 3D printing. Objects printed with PLA filament are now being used in many fields. Many parts of 3D printers can be printed with PLA filament. It’s funny, right? The printed objects become a part of the 3D Printer itself. The rich available colors and translucency and glossy feel often make it a good choice of printing for display or small household uses.
The objects printed with PLA filament is usually glossy on the surface. So post processing is sometime not needed. But PLA can be sanded down and may be painted over with acrylic paint. Some people in the 3D printing community recommend to use super clue to do parts gluing.
PLA will attract water molecules from the air if it is exposed to the air. It will become brittle and sometimes difficult to print with. So please keep it stored in sealed, cool and dry condition.
