MakerBot PLA material is the best and most consistent material optimized for use in MakerBot's 5th Generation Line of 3D Printers. This size is for use in the MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer.
All MakerBot material is manufactured to produce the highest quality 3D prints and is trusted by leading companies and institutions the world over, thanks to state-of-the-art material manufacturing and quality control standards.
- When used with MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, PLA material helps produce higher-quality prints, reduce material 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 material adheres well to acrylic and to MakerBot Build Plate Tape.
