PLA (polylactic acid or polylactide) is an aliphatic polyester thermoplastic made of renewable resources such as corn or starch. Our PLA has a relatively low melting temperature at 190°C – 230°C and you can use it for most of your common prints and is easy to print with. It is a very hard plastic when printed and is fully recyclable.

One of the benefits of using PLA as a print material is the ease of use and a wide variety of application. PLA is not as sensitive to temperature changes which means it does not need a heated build plate or a full enclosure to print well.

Parts printed with PLA have great surface quality and decent strength, however, we would not recommend this print material suitable for parts that undergo a lot of wear and tear or be left outside in the elements for long. We would recommend printing material such as ABS or PETG if you are looking for these types of qualities.

However, PLA is an easy print material to work with and is generally more forgiving with complex features. For example, you can print an overhang of up to 68° vs 45° with ABS, in addition to easier bridge building. It goes without saying, for optimal prints, make sure you use a raft and make sure your build plate is level.
