Introducing Print Your Mind 3D PLA Filament
We are very excited to now offer a new, high-end PLA 3D printing filament. We carry a full line of PLA, ABS, PETG, and Woodfill materials. Our filaments are made in the USA using very high quality standards of +/- 0.05mm in diameter and +/-0.03mm in roundness. A portion of every sale is allocated to our Enviromaker initiatives to support education, innovation, and sustainability.
Tested For Superior Performance
After extensive testing with various Lulzbot and Ultimaker 3D printers, we can assure you that you can print with confidence knowing you can expect quality results. We vigoriously tested the material to ensure a top quality performance with the 3D printers we carry.
For the easiest printing experience with the Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker Extended+, we reccomend printing our spool holder - Download here.
** NOTE: Due to our spool dimensions, we do not reccomend this material to be used with the Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 3 Extended.
What is PLA?
PLA is one of the most popular 3D printer filaments for a reason. This material is commonly refereed to as the easiest to get consistent, impressive looking prints. PLA is also a nontoxic, bio-degradable material derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane so it is less of an environmental burden than other materials.
We recommend PLA for new users to 3D printing. Compared to other materials, it has much less tendency to warp or curl, and performs well with almost every type of 3D printer. PLA sticks very well to blue painters tape or extra hold hair spray on glass surfaces.
PLA filaments should be stored in a cool dry place since PLA does tend to absorb moisture. This can lead to poor quality and performance.
2.85mm vs 3.00mm
We often get questions about the difference between 2.85mm and 3.00mm filaments. Usually, most filaments labelled as 3.00mm will actually be closer to 2.85mm in diameter. Our materials are truly 2.85mm filaments which means superior printing performance with Ultimaker 3D printers, as well as those that require 3.00mm such as Lulzbot Taz 6 and Mini. Just remember to configure your slicing software for a true 2.85mm material and you can expect impressive results.
- 1 kg roll
- Vivid color
- +/- 0.05mm in diamter and +/- 0.03mm in roundness
- Manufactured in the USA
- Every roll comes vacuum sealed with moisture absorbing desiccant
STORAGE: Every order comes with one large resealable bag. Use this along with the included desicant bag to ensure your filament stays dry. It is important to store your filaments in a dry area to avoid moisture absorption when not in use. This will also ensure your filaments are free of dust & dirt to make ensure your next project prints without a hitch.
