MakerBot PLA Filament is the best and most consistent filament optimized for use with MakerBot's Replicator+ and MakerBot's 5th Generation Line of 3D Printers. This size spool is for use in the MakerBot Replicator+, MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer (5th Gen), MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer, or MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer.
All MakerBot Filament is manufactured to produce the highest quality 3D prints and is trusted by leading companies and institutions the world over, thanks to state-of-the-art filament manufacturing and quality control standards.
When used with MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, PLA Filament helps produce higher-quality prints, reduce filament problems, and minimize downtime.
Compared to ABS, PLA demonstrates much less part warping and curling and, for this reason, can be successfully printed without a heated build plate.
Details such as sharp corners and edges print well and PLA printed objects will generally have a glossier look and feel.
MakerBot PLA Filament adheres well to acrylic and to MakerBot Build Plate Tape.
