3D print parts with renewable plastic material
Polylactic acid, also known as PLA, is ideal for quick concept and verification models. This value-priced material is user-friendly and is perfect for beginning users. PLA builds with PLA as its break-away support material.
3D Printing With FDM and PLA
PLA is a renewable plastic material offered as a low-cost material option for fast-draft part iterations. Available on the office-friendly Stratasys F123™ Series, PLA offers a higher stiffness than ABS and its low melting point and HDT mean less heat and power required to print parts.
PLA works well at high speeds, specifically fast- draft mode on the Stratasys F123 Series, for quick concept verification and design development. PLA offers good tensile strength and is available in a wide range of colors. Ideal applications for PLA include early concept modeling and fast prototyping.
PLA is available in the following colors: Natural, Transparent Red, Transparent Yellow, Transparent Green, Transparent Blue, Black, White, Red, Blue, Light Gray, Medium Gray.
