Advanced PLA+ (APLA+) has higher impact strength than ABS and PLA with a heat resistance rivaling that of ABS! Available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameter, new Advanced PLA+ will help your 3D printed projects look amazing and perform amazing. Anneal your design after 3D printing for even better heat resistance.
Our Advanced PLA+ is engineered and designed specifically with 3D Printing in mind. APLA+ was designed with the high impact strength needed in industrial applications to meet the growing demand by companies for a material with the properties of ABS, but the printability of PLA. Where annealed APLA displays impact strength levels at 1.7 times that of standard PLA, the new APLA+ boasts 4.3 times that of PLA. Even before post-processing, APLA+ exhibits significantly higher impact strength than ABS.
Quality: All 3D-Fuel 3D printer filament is manufactured in our own production facility located in Fargo, North Dakota or in Moville, Ireland (depending on customer location). We have complete control over the manufacturing process and are able to ensure consistent quality for every spool. Learn more about 3D-Fuel USA 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 Natural Advanced PLA+ plastic filament arrives on an easy-to-use 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 MakerBot, LulzBot, FlashForge, and more. We 3D print what we manufacture to ensure that our filament provides the absolute best quality possible.
