PLA 8.5 kg - White Large 3D Printer Filament
Recycled origin. Unrivalled quality.
PLA; the staple of desktop 3D printing. Short for polylactic acid, PLA is a bioplastic derived from plant-based sources, meaning it is more environmentally friendly compared to ABS, for example. However, PLA production is depleting natural resources faster that they can be replenished. To address this issue, we have pioneered rPLA 3D printer filament, still boasting the same great PLA features such as; low warping, limited smell and premium print quality – but with the added benefit of being produced from factory waste streams as opposed to virgin pellets. All users of rPLA can feel good about reducing the demand for natural resources and therefore saving the environment, whilst being confident that the print quality will still be one of the best on the market! The go-to filament for all 3D printer owners, perfect consumer products, toys and general prototypes.

I successfully used these with a large-format (2m^3) 3d printer to print continuous sculptures 1.6m tall, over 27 days total print time PER MODEL.
We successfully printed each using just 2 of these huge reels, with zero tangling or other issues. Hugely reduced potential failure points on the print.
We built a large spool holder using 608 bearings, but otherwise no special treatment was required, an E3D Titan extruder could pull filament via a 3m long PTFE tube with ease. The spool seemed nicely balanced which is important for consistent unspooling.

Fantastic Quality Filament, works every time. Printing heavy, soft-tools for thermo-forming using a 0.8mm nozzle, flows super fast.
The white rPLA is particularly smooth.
