Sustainable and easy to print filament made from 30 % recycled PLA.

To further expand their impressive offer of 3D printing filaments, Polymaker has released a unique filament made with 30 % of post industrial recycled PLA - PolyTerra PLA Edition R. This material belongs to the family of sustainable PolyTerra filaments and is characterized by good stiffness, good mechanical properties and great printability.

PLA itself is a biosourced material obtained from plants such as corn, beet, sugarcane, and many more, which makes it a sustainable and eco-friendly 3D printing material. PolyTerra PLA Edition R takes it even further by being made from recycled post industrial PLA. To further reduce the carbon footprint of their materials, Polymaker uses recycled cardboard for their spools and opts for a plastic-free packaging. Furthermore, a tree is planted for each spool of PolyTerra filament purchased.

The sustainable packaging of the PolyTerra PLA Edition R filament

PolyTerra PLA Edition R is compatible with almost any FDM 3D printer with an open material system, for example printers by ArtilleryFlashforge, Raise3DAnycubicSnapmaker or Creality. The PolyTerra PLA Edition R filament is ideal for the additive manufacturing of non-functional parts with great surface finish and durability thanks to its excellent mechanical properties, and is very user friendly due to its ease of printing and post-processing.

Polymaker spool adapter

In the download section you will find the STL and STEP files to 3D print your own Polymaker spool adapter. This durable spool adapter helps reduce friction by creating a structured running surface, and also avoids the dust build-up associated with similar adapter solutions. The spool adapter was created with the Polymaker cardboard spools in mind to compensate for any spool deformation that could influence spool stability.

This Polymaker spool adapter is compatible with all multi-material stations, such as Bambu Lab's AMS or Ultimaker's Material Station. Printing the adapter requires about 40 minutes and 30 g of filament. Recommended materials are PLA, PolyLite PETG, PolyLite ASA or PolyMax PLA for durability and longevity. To extend the life of the spool adapter, Polymaker suggests first removing the locating pin before removing the edge clips to reduce stress on the adapter when changing spools.

PolyTerra PLA Edition R should be properly stored to avoid the filament from getting humid. An ideal solution is to store it in a vacuum sealed packaging (with the Slice Engineering filament drying capsule for even better results), an intelligent filament container or in the PolyBox storage box that keeps the filament dry during printing. If the filament absorbs too much moisture, it should be dried at 55 ºC for 6 hours.

The recommended printing settings for the PolyTerra PLA Edition R filament are a 190-230 ºC extrusion temperature at a speed of 30-70 mm/s, on a bed heated to 25-60 ºC, with the layer fan turned on.

Complex structures can be 3D printed with the PolyTerra PLA Edition R filament and a support filament, for example the PolySupport filament. A 3D printer with at least two extruders is required to print with supports.
