PLA Filament Transparent – 1.75 mm

Item No : 222000355

Weight: 1 kg created from processing any number of plant products , pla is considered a more ‘earth friendly’ plastic compared to petroleum based abs . used primarily in food packaging and containers. it is naturally transparent and can be colored to various degrees of translucency and opacity. also strong, and more rigid than abs , it is occasionally more difficult to work with in complicated interlocking assemblies and pin-joints. printed objects will generally have a glossier look and feel than abs. with a little more work, pla can also be sanded and machined. the lower melting temperature of pla makes it unsuitable for many applications as even parts spending the day in a hot car can droop and deform . the wide range of available colors and translucencies and glossy feel often attract those who print for display or small household uses. many appreciate the plant based origins and prefer the semi-sweet smell over abs . when properly cooled, pla seems to have higher maximum printing speeds, lower layer heights, and sharper printed corners . combining this with low warping on parts make it a popular plastic for home printers, hobbyists, and schools.

temperature: print at 180 200 c and while you can print without a heated bed, i reco mmend one running at 60 c. pla s glass transition temp is probably it s biggest downside and at only 60ish. it limits how you can use this plastic.
print performance: in almost the complete opposite to abs, pla users sometimes have difficulties with ja mming in the hot-end (especially all-metal hot end users) due to the sticky and expanding nature of pla as it melts. this doesn t mean you should shy away from printing with it, just a drop of oil added to almost any hot-end when you put a roll on will give you smooth, jam-free, jam-smelling prints till the cows come home.
the real joy with pla comes as it lays on the print bed. with almost no shrinkage, you can print massive prints in open framed printers with little fear of lifting from the bed, warping or cracking, it s a great filament to use when showing off your printer in a public setting.
pla is no problem for outdoor projects strength: while you can still print incredibly strong objects with pla, it tends to be a little more brittle than other plastics. rather than bouncing when dropped or struck, some printed parts may just shatter or chip. thin parts are more likely to snap than bend very far. layer bond is very strong if printed appropriately. fumes: if you do happen to catch a whiff of pla as it prints, i think you ll be pleasantly surprised. the fumes are minor, and they smell good! when to use it: personally i reco mmend using it whenever you can. it s a bioplastic that can be recycled or composted. it s perfect for boxes, gifts, models, prototype parts. oh and don t be afraid of using it outdoors, while it does biodegrade, it does need a heated composting setup and it s insoluble in water, so make a pla garden gnome right now!
pla comes in nice transparent options, the choice is clear when not to use it: if you re making something that needs to hold up in 60 (c) temperatures avoid pla, it will start sagging at this temperature. due to it s brittle nature it isn t reco mmended for tool handles or parts that will be dropped repeatedly, also parts that have very thin portions will break after bending slightly.
