PLA Filament by HELLO3D
This is a unique tri color changing PLA filament. The material will change into 3 different colors depending on the temperature:
Under 31ºC = Black
31ºC to 45ºC = Red/Brown
Over 45ºC = Yellow
PLA is one of the most commonly used 3D printer filament because it is easy to use and is a friendly, nontoxic, bio-degradable material derived from renewable resources such as field corn.
Perfect for those who are new to 3D printing; compared to ABS, it is easy to use, excellent forming, demonstrates much less warping and curling and performs well on almost every type of printing.
PLA is especially ideal for printing objects with flat surfaces, hard angles and ones requiring tight tolerances for fit.
Commonly used for prototypes, educational architectural models, and artifact replicas. It's a popular choice for users looking to paint objects after they have been printed, such as costume props and figurines.
PLA is relatively brittle, so it is not recommended for thin, high strength applications.
PLA filaments should be stored in a cool dry place since PLA tends to absorbs moisture from the atmosphere which can compromise quality and performance.
|190°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.
- 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.
