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.
