    With purple PLA Basic filament you will be able to print complex shapes easily.

    Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) filament is manufactured in Europe for 3D printers. Spool 1 kg(2.3 lb) Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) support multiple types of 3D printers. PLA is a biodegradable plastic that is obtained from natural resources, in particular is obtained from the extracted starch from corn, sugar beet and wheat.

    Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) is one of the most widely used 3D printing today because no apparent damaging gases because it is not necessary to have a 3D printer with hot bed base which makes it very easy to print materials with him. If you are interested in learning more about this material you can read more on this link.

    Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) is the easiest material 3D printers for print on FDM/FFF Technology. With Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) you can get brighter figures than using the ABS while this is stiffer and stronger. In addition Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) filament is a permanent, odourless polymer. The extrusion temperature to print with this Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) must be between 190 and 220 ºC. In a tab usage tips you can view more interesting information for optimal results using Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) on your 3D printer.

    Can't drill, paint or sanding as the ABS but is a more stable and easier to print plastic this. If you wish to obtain special surface finishes in Purple PLA Basic (1.75 mm or 2.85 mm) use coating designed specifically for 3D printing you'll find in the accessories category called XTC-3D. For higher yields of 3D printing is advisable to cover the bed of the printer with Blue TapeBuildTakMagigoo or 3DLac you can find in the store fixtures.

    3D printing with PLA is simpler and easier than with ABS. It is not necessary that the printer dock is hot, but if possible it is recommended that the base is approximately 50-60 ºC, to prevent any small sign of "warping" appears. The extruder temperature must be between 190 and 220 ºC depending on the colour and 3D printer used. If your printer has a fan nozzle is recommended that you enable it for best results In the article from our blog of 3D printing is explained about the main doubts of 3D printing with PLA and ABS.

    If you need to print very thin and tall pieces, you will see that the PLA plastic does not give you enough time to harden each layer, so that the piece will be as if it had melted. To solve this problem we give a very simple advice, printed at the same time at least 2 pieces, and place them in separate base. So while the extruder is moved from one piece to another, the plastic has time to harden each layer in achieving a better result.

    The adhesion of the first layer is key and probably the most important factors for goods prints. So you can use Blue TapeBuildTak, Magigoo or 3DLac.

    It is also advisable to set the "raft" which is to create a first thick layer, and supports that will not suffer that contraction and on which is printed the piece. The disadvantage of using the "raft" is that this first layer will have a less smooth.
    It is advisable to lower the density of "infill" parameter for the part to store less heat. As for the "brim" (the membrane that is created around the part) parameter is recommended never fit in greater thicknesses of 5mm to help the first layer does not come off.

    As for the interior temperature where printed is recommended to be controlled and no drafts.
