3D Printing with PLA

There's a reason more people use PLA than any other 3d printing material.  It's resilient and it's cheap.  Whether you're a business, in education or designing at home, PLA is a great material to start printing with and to use as a foundational filament.

Printing temps: 195-215C

Some best practice tips:

  • If your prints are coming out too soft, decrease the extruder temperature by 5 degrees.  This will help harden the print.
  • If you're not getting good layer adhesion during the printing process, increase the extruder temperature by 5 degrees.   
  • Check the recommended specifications on your printer and filament for the optimal temperature ranges
