PLA Filament

MakerBot PLA Filament is optimized for the latest generation of MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers.

  • The diameter of MakerBot PLA Filament is uniformly round to ensure that it will consistently flow through the extruder onto the build plate in smooth even layers.
  • MakerBot PLA Filament is comprehensively tested to ensure there are no deviations in quality.
  • MakerBot PLA Filament is made in the USA from the highest quality resins.

We recommend storing your MakerBot PLA Filament in a cool, dry place to avoid extrusion issues and prevent Smart Extruder+ wear.
