PLA Filament - TRANSLUCENT YELLOW - 3.00mm
Free Gift

$23.96 $29.95

Our original series Standard PLA (Polylactic Acid) 3D printer filament is our popular, tried and tested thermoplastic filament.

Our premium grade 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.

 3d filament net weight NET WEIGHT: 1 KG (2.2 LB)
 virgin raw material 3d filaments Made from 100% Grade A Virgin Raw Materials: We've seen first hand what prints from recycled filaments can look like, issues such as visible discoloration and other inconsistencies are common. From the very beginning, we've always guaranteed in writing that our filaments are made from pure grade virgin resin, giving you consistent high quality prints, beautiful look and feel.
 laser diameter controlled 3d filaments Controlled using Non-Contact Laser Diameter Gauge: Rapid, precise and repeatable measurements to exact dimensional tolerances. Such gauges allow us to maintain consistent high quality filament by automatically stopping a production line the moment a non-conforming measurement is detected. So regardless of the 3D printer you are using, the consistently round diameters provide optimum flow through the extruder nozzle.
 non brittle pla 3d filaments New Non-Brittle Formula: Naturally brittle plastics such as PLA can now be used with confidence knowing that the filament will not brake during a print job, while still inside the printer or just sitting in storage. Our new formula adjusts the degradability of the material for optimal strength and performance.
 high resolution 3d filaments Ideal for High Resolution Prints: Our filaments will give you outstanding results even when printing at ultra high resolution using the latest 3D printers.
 reliable 3d filaments Tested on a Wide Range of 3D Printers: We repeatedly and accurately test our filaments in-house, but more importantly, we act based on feedback from thousands of customers all across Canada (Thank you!)
 rohs compliant 3d filaments Compliant, Registered and Certified: Our filaments comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substance (RoHS) directive and certified by SGS. Why is it important? It basically means the filaments are free from lead and other potentially hazardous substances including cadmium, mercury and chromium VI, among others.
 moisture free 3d filaments Moisture Protected Packaging: Some 3D printing materials can be negatively affected by moisture, that's why every product made by us is packed inside an air tight package along with a moisture absorbing desiccant pack. Furthermore, we've taken an extra precautionary step and will also ship you 1 free resealable bag as well as 1 free extra desiccant pack for every spool that you order. Regardless of the type of filament or the manufacturer. This will enable you to easily keep your filaments at an optimal storage condition and free from dust or dirt AFTER opening the original packaging, so its always ready for your next print.
 pantone color 3d filaments Produced According to a Standardized Color System: Every colored filament we manufacture is formulated according to a standard color system such as the Pantone Color Matching System. This is important in order to ensure consistent color shade with every batch as well as allowing us to produce specialty colors such as metallic and custom colors.

3d printing temperature guideline Printing


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 60°C
  • If warping still occurs, print using raft.
  • First layer usually 5°C-10°C higher than subsequent layers.
  • Glow in the dark use 5°C-10°C higher.
  • Sticks well to Blue painter's tape.
  • Sticks well to extra strong hair spray.
  • Sticks well with "ABS Juice" (scrap ABS filament dissolved in acetone)
  • Sticks well to PEI printing surface
  • PLA absorbs heat and so benefits from additional active cooling.
