Natural Standard PLA is great for a basic material for 3D printing prototypes. This PLA does have a slight, yellowish hue in its natural form. (Note: The photo shows our old beige spool. The actual spool you will receive will be black.)
Natural Standard PLA printed parts will always look great. The neutral coloring is translucent and allows you to see the object, not the color of the object.
Our Standard PLA, or Polylactic Acid, is among the most popular 3D printing materials in the world because it is easy to print and strong. Standard PLA is a hard plastic that produces a barely noticeable, but quite pleasant, sugary smell when extruding.
Standard PLA has a quick transition from molten to solid, enabling it to provide more detail than other plastics.
Quality: All 3D-Fuel 3D printer filament is manufactured in our own production facility located in Fargo, North Dakota. We have complete control over the manufacturing process and are able to ensure consistent quality for every spool. Learn more about 3D-Fuel filament quality.
Diameter Tolerance: Variable diameter can cause big problems in your 3D printer. We use a multi-axis laser measurement system to control our filament diameter and ovality in real time during production. Every spool has the diameter and ovality measurements listed right on the box.
Packing Information: A full 1kg (2.2lbs) of Standard PLA plastic filament arrives on a durable plastic reel and is vacuum sealed with a desiccant packet to keep out any moisture.
Test Printing: The 3D-Fuel test lab features multiple brands of 3D printers including Raise3D, MakerBot, LulzBot, FlashForge, and more. We use what we manufacture to ensure that our filament provides the absolute best quality possible.
