PLA (Polylactic Acid) is an excellent choice for 3D printing. PLA is non-toxic and produced from renewable sources. It is also remarkably easy to print with PLA, as it does not require a heated bed and exhibits minimal warpage. PLA pellets can be combined with additives to produce filament with custom colors and technical properties.
We also have this grade available in 60 mesh pulverized form if you are trying to mix other materials into your filament.
Our PLA is produced here in the US from Natureworks, the global leader in bio-based material development.

|** "Not Extrudable" means that plastic does not stay in filament from as it comes out of the nozzle, the system can melt and push the plastic out of the nozzle but will puddle. The melt flow of the polymer is too high.|
