UltiMaker PLA Filament

PLA is Shop3D's recommended choice for all 3D Printing for Schools/Libraries/Homes.  It is easy to print, does not have offensive odours and the colours are nice and vibrant.

Reasons to Choose UltiMaker PLA
  • If you want to easily achieve high resolution prints
  • Printing concept models and prototypes when aesthetics and fine details are key
  • When you’re casting metal parts through lost PLA casting
  • It’s perfect for printing in education or in the office, thanks to low ultrafine particle emissions
  • A heated bed isn’t necessary, it works with glue and blue tape as well
  • PLA isn’t suitable for medium temperature applications (50˚C +) or long term outdoor usage. ABS is a better material for high temperature applications and CPE for outdoor usage.
UltiMaker Materials Comparison

Every material has different properties. Our comparison helps you select the best one for your application.

  • PLA/ABS: You’re comparing an aesthetic material to a technical one. PLA is easy to use and has good surface quality, whilst ABS is better for functional parts that require impact strength and dimensional stability. There’s a transparent PLA option available.
  • PLA/CPE: You’re comparing an aesthetic material to a technical one. PLA is easy to use and has good surface quality, whilst CPE is best for functional parts that require both strength and chemical resistance. Both PLA and CPE have transparent options available.

    Fast, safe and reliable printing

    PLA is ideal for the fast and reliable printing of parts and prototypes with a great surface quality.
