3D Printer Filament PLA Blue Color 1.75mm/3mm
PLA is a kind of biomaterial from corn grains, and it is very environmental. For its natural biodegradable and it doesn’t have any pungent odor when it is processing. PLA’s material is tough, it has good gloss, it has higher transparency with strong assault resistance, therefore its printing products are shiny, clean and beautiful.
3D Printer Filament PLA has the advantages of environmental protection, non-toxic, harmless, biodegradable, small shrinkage, good thermal stability, good toughness, high strength, shiny surface and many other benefits. It is the best-selling 3D Printer material on the market at present.
- Small shrinkage, good thermal stability. It can print the samples of complex structure and large items no cracking, low distortion.
- Good toughness, high strength. Except the ordinary objects, it suitable for printing assembling structure at the same time. When the strength of the structure is high. The print filling rate should be above 30%.
- Recommended Extrusion Temperatures: 200°C-240°C
- Spool Dimensions (Approx): 200mm Total Diameter x 56mm Inner Hole Diameter x 70mm Height
- Dimensional Accuracy: ±0.1mm
- Density: 1.25 g/cm³
- Modeling Shrinkage: 0.3%
- Length (Approx): 330 m
All filament comes sealed in a bag with desiccant. We recommend keeping it stored that way until you are ready to use it. Spools not in use should be kept in an airtight container.
Tips and Tricks for Printing in PLA
Get the first layer right! Most prints succeed or fail based on the first layer. Be sure to level the print bed and to home the printer. Then print onto Kapton tape to help make sure your print sticks to the bed throughout the whole print. An alternative to printing on Kapton tape is to print with a heated bed and print straight onto glass. Heat the bed to 50°C-70°C.
If your first layer fails to stick to the bed then be sure you have a level bed, make sure the print head is close enough to the bed, and make sure you have run the extruder before beginning the print.
Temperature is King – Each time you try a new filament realize that you may need to experiment with the ideal print temperature for your machine. Each machine is a little different so start with our suggested range (200°C-240°C) and move up or down in 5 degree increments until your prints look perfect. If you are printing too hot, your print will look stringy or your extruder will look like it is leaking filament.
If you are printing too cold you will notice that your filament is having trouble adhering to each layer and the surface will look very ruff.
*3D printers have lots of different types of hot-end which makes it extremely difficult to give aan temperature advice. We feel our temperature advice holds for most 3d printers, but should be considered as a starting point for you to find the temperatures that work in you setup. Don’t be afraid to go either higher or lower than our advised temperatures if you feel your setup needs this.
