Gold Happens PLA filament of very high quality manufactured in Europe by Fillamentum.

The Gold Happens PLA filament is ideal for obtaining a high quality surface finish in a spectacular pearly golden color with bright reflections reminiscent of a pearl. This filament also allows to obtain a high level of detail on the part and excellent lamination.

PLA is a biodegradable plastic derived from natural resources, usually from corn starch, sugar beet and wheat. PLA filament is one of the most widely used 3D printing today due to its ease of printing and the fact that it does not release harmful gases when extruded.

Compatible with most FDM 3D printers, PLA Gold Happens requires an extrusion temperature between 190 and 210 °C and a bed temperature of 40-50 ºC. For the best printing results it is advisable to use Blue Tape, 3DLac, Magigoo or BuildTak with this filament.

This filament is manufactured in Europe to meet the highest quality standards, and it undergoes strict quality control at each manufacturing state. This ensures high dimensional accuracy with a diameter tolerance of +/- 0.05 mm.

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.
