CraftUnique’s Craftbot PLA Light Grey Filament (1.75mm) is a tough, easy to use high grade PLA type of filament, ideal for 3D printing. Slightly modified, the filament retains the typical features of PLA, but makes it tougher and less brittle. Due to a low shrinkage factor, PLA will not deform after cooling. PLA or Poly Lactic Acid is a biodegradable plastic made from renewable natural resources and one of the most popular materials for 3D printing.
PLA is a good choice for a printing material if you are looking for high accuracy and high resolution. It extrudes at lower temperatures, does not require a heated base, and has a very low shrinkage rate (0.3%). PLA is harder than ABS, but is therefore also a bit more brittle.
Because of it’s biodegradable properties, PLA plastic is very popular among students and educators. It’s safe in all environments… so safe that CraftBot PLA Red has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for food contact.
CraftBot PLA Light Grey features:
- Tougher and less brittle compared to other PLA brands
- Easy to print at low temperature
- Low warping
- Limited smell
The negatives of using PLA is that it is vulnerable to degradation from moisture, sunlight, and heat. Additionally, it is more prone to overheating during processing, which can cause dripping and drooping if it gets too hot.
