Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources. Safe for the office, this material is non-toxic and easy-to-print with high reliability and dimensional accuracy. MakerBot precision PLA Material is optimised with the slicing algorithm in our software to give you the best results and highest quality. Ideal for the early stages of concept modelling and form studies, PLA printed objects will generally have a glossier look and feel.

Store MakerBot Method PLA Precision Material in the included a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag to avoid moisture absorption from air and long-term exposure to humidity can compromise material quality and performance. Make sure the built-in desiccant is ion the spool to absorb any moisture exposure during the material loading process.
