MakerBot PLA Filament

MakerBot PLA Filament Spool MakerBot PLA Filament Spool MakerBot PLA Filament Spool

MakerBot PLA Filament is the best and most consistent filament designed for the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer and all Fifth Generation MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers.

Higher quality prints and minimized downtime.
  • 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.
MakerBot PLA Filament is composed of the purest grade resin available on the market.
  • 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 is comprehensively quality tested.
  • 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.

Tips & Tricks

  • 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.
  • MakerBot PLA Filament adheres well to acrylic and to blue painter’s tape.
  • Prints with a large bottom layer may have a tendency to curl. To prevent curling, turn on the raft option in MakerBot Desktop.
  • Store MakerBot PLA Filament in a cool, dry place as it can absorb moisture from air and long-term exposure to humidity can compromise filament quality and performance.
  • Be sure your build plate is level, clean, and oil-free before printing.
