Filaform Select PLA
PLA (Poly-Lactic Acid in full) is a bio-degradable plastic derived from plant based sources such as corn starch. Possibly the most popular desktop 3D printing material due to it's ease of use. It doesn't require a heated bed, has almost no warping and gives off a sweet smell when printing.
Produced in a temperature and humidity controlled environement, contamination from airborne particulates or moisture cannot reach the material during production. The extrusion machinery is cleaned after every run to guarantee each spool is free from imperfections.
Intelligently Wound Spooling
Each spool is perfectly wound by sofisticated electronics, placing each layer of filament side by side and with even tension. This results in a tangle free unwinding, eliminating failed prints caused by crossed over filament.
Remaining Filament Estimator
The clear spools have markings on the sides, indicating the length of filament remainging. This allows you to quickly judge if you have sufficient material to complete a job.
Large Centre Hub
The uniquely designed spool has a large centre hub that reduces the radial stress on the filament. This greatly reduces the tendancy to "pig tail" when you get close to the end of the roll. This can be especially apparent with 2.85mm PLA.
Very poor glowBy: Kieran on 4 April 2019This filament barely glows at all and when it does it only lasts a very short time it prints ok but not worth the extra for glow filament as it doesn’t really glow!
Pretty good filament to printBy: Daniel I. on 11 January 2016Pretty good filament to print with. Fun with glow in the dark!
Filament was delivered very quickly.By: Kiah C. on 7 April 2015Filament was delivered very quickly. Packaging was excellent. After some minor adjustment to printer settings, (Different PLA filament often have a different "Sweet spot" for temperature), I was up and running with no issues. Quality of plastic is superb with minimal variance in width.
