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.


Contaminant Free

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 inconsistent gauge. Oozes like nothing else ive printed. Very difficult to get good prints with this filament. Please advice on print settings if you know how I could get better results. So far used half the spool on benchys trying to get my profile right for it.
