PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a biodegradable, sustainable and food safe polymer made from organic sources.

It is the most common used filament in FFF 3D printers for its ease of use and wide range of applications, specially those not mechanically or thermally demanding. Definitely a good starting point to learn about the 3D Printing manufacturing process.

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.


Store it in an airtight container with desiccant.



Product design prototype

PLA is ideal for those models and prototypes that need and good surface quality and aesthetic detail. Also, is the perfect material for printing part that contain overhangs, complex geometries and intricate curves.


Affordable concept design

The process of developing the conceptual design of a product using 3D printing reduces the costs of product development and allows the evaluation of the functionality of the specific part. PLA is a perfect material for that kind of prototypes.


Variety of colours

Colours express different feelings and emotions; if we know how to play with them and use them when appropriate, our designs will be a success.


Product design prototype

For this prototype of the frame for TwoNav's GPS devices, PLA was chosen for its famed versatility and ease of use.


Customized tooling

After dissolving soluble supports to enable the creation of complex geometries, this end-use part made from Tough PLA is a sturdy device that guarantees precision for the creation of end-use parts.


Product design prototype

For this stretcher's base of carbon fiber that joins onto a foldable aluminum structure, 3D printed parts were used for inserts in the structure. PLA was chosen for its cost efficiency and ease of print, avoiding what would otherwise be an expensive industrial process.

While other rovers contain metal conveyor belts, the Clearwater team was looking for something more lightweight. In total, ¾ of the rover is 3D printed: the hulls in ABS for its toughness against sea conditions; ABS for the springs and bridge; TPU for the flexible, rubbery bristles; and PLA for some more rigid parts.
