3DGence PLA Filament 1.75mm 1kg
3DGence PLA is the perfect filament for prototyping and making models with fast print speeds. It’s dimensionally stable and relatively strong and durable. It is also available in a wide variety of colours to suit your creative needs.
PLA is biodegradable in a composting environment and fully recyclable. This makes it a popular choice for prototyping and ‘throw away’ models. But it’s equally suited to making detailed models and parts. In fact, PLA captures better detail than ABS, so it’s highly suited to model making and product design.
To print 3DGence PLA on the INDUSTRY F340, use the Pro module and set the nozzle temperature to 200 - 320°C. The print bed should be set to 60°C to aid adhesion and make pulling parts from the print bed easier.
PLA is easier to print than ABS and it also has superior tensile strength. It can also bend more before it snaps. It isn’t as ductile as ABS and it has lower flexural strength, but other than that, it is a good alternative in most cases. Use it to make housings, cases, grips, small components, detailed models and prototypes. Need help choosing the right material? Feel free to ask our experts. We’re here to help.
