Filaments.ca "Canadian Maker Series" 3D filament line:
As 3D printing enthusiasts ourselves, our Canadian Maker Series line of filament is locally engineered and produced for use in all open filament 3D printers. A dedicated advanced engineering team and small batch production allows for higher quality control, trace-ability and faster corrective action implementation based on feedback from the maker community.
We understand that makers just want to make! So in this series we focus on high quality, locally made, affordable and practical 3D printing materials. We also take advantage of excellent local supplier partnerships and a loyal Canadian customer base (thank you!) to produce affordable yet high quality filament right here in Ontario, Canada!
The filament is processed on a new advanced line utilizing an A.I. control system that "learns" and tightens parameters such as ovality and dimensional accuracy the more it produces (±0.02mm or better!). Each lot and spool is controlled with a unique ID number, certifying its manufacturing precision tolerance and producing what we call a "Dimensionally Certified" filament!
Advanced PLA Features:
- Advanced PLA is a modified bio-based resin, design and engineered for optimal 3D printing results using open filament 3D printers.
- Advanced PLA is processed under very high pressure; compared to Standard PLA, it is stronger, tougher and less hygroscopic.
- Canadian Maker Series Advanced PLA has a smooth low gloss / semi-matte finish, giving your 3D printed objects a more unique, uniform and professional look.
- Smooth printing
- Less stringing
- Low warp
- Excellent layer adhesion
- Pantone color coded
- Dimensionally Certified
- FDA food contact compliant
- Made in Canada
NET WEIGHT: 1 KG (2.2 LB)
|205°C - 230°C
- PLA can be printed both with and without a heated print bed, but if your desktop 3D printer does have a heated print bed it is recommended to set your print bed temperature to approximately 40°C to 60°C.
- First layer usually 5°C-10°C higher than subsequent layers.
- Stick well to glass with glue stick as well as most printing surfaces on the market, including blue tape, PEI, BuildTak etc.
- PLA absorbs heat and so benefits from additional active cooling.
