Product DescriptionMakerBot Large True Purple PLA 1.75mm Filament is the best and most consistent filament for MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers. MakerBot PLA Filament is a bioplastic made from corn. All its dyes are FDA-approved as food safe and it is guaranteed to have no heavy metals, phthalates, or BPA. Every filament color is comprehensively quality tested at both 100-micron and 200-micron layer resolutions to verify that the filament will perform every feature that MakerBot MakerWare and MakerBot Desktop software offer. Each MakerBot Large PLA Filament reel contains 2 lb of material.
MakerBot PLA Filament Overview:
When used with MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, PLA Filament helps produce higher-quality prints, reduce filament problems, and minimize downtime. Compared to ABS, PLA demonstrates much less part warping and curling and, for this reason, can be successfully printed without a heated build plate. Details such as sharp corners and edges print well and PLA printed objects will generally have a glossier look and feel.READ MORE
MakerBot PLA Filament is a nontoxic resin made of sugar derived from field corn and has a semisweet smell (like waffles) when heated. If you’re new to 3D printing, MakerBot PLA Filament is a good material to start with because it’s easy to use and performs well on most prints.
Every MakerBot PLA Filament color also undergoes long-duration testing using a large 3D model that requires 18–24 hours of print time, to ensure that there are no deviations in print quality. MakerBot PLA Filament adheres well to acrylic and to MakerBot Build Plate Tape. Every MakerBot PLA Filament color is comprehensively quality tested at both high (100 micron) and medium (200 micron) layer resolutions on all MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers to verify that the filament will perform every feature that MakerBot apps offer and will reliably slice and print all types of models.
