ColorFabb Light Weight Natural PLA 0.75kg
The first filament of its kind using an active foaming technology to achieve lightweight, low density PLA parts. At around 230C this material will start foaming, increasing its volume by nearly 3 times.
  • Users can decrease material flow by 60% to achieve lightweight parts, or use the expanding properties to effectively reduce print time by using big layer heights or single extra thick perimeters.
  • Each spool contains a minimum 750 grams of filament
  • Effective diameter 1.75 mm +/- 0.05  2.85mm +/- 0.10

Fine tuning and optimization is needed to fully understand and master this material.

Not Cheap, but a great product

Even taking into account, the extrusion multiplier of half what I use for PLA+, this LW-PLA works out about twice as expensive as the PLA+ I normally use. However, Colorfabb LW-PLA allows me to build model aircraft much closer to traditional balsa weights, and that makes it all worthwhile! Delivery was fast in these Covid days too! Well done 3dprintergear!
