PLA: Easy to use but so delicate


PLA filament is very popular in 3D printing for several reasons.


  • Ease of use:
    • It is easy to print and has wide error tolerance, making it ideal for beginners1.
      Low printing temperature: This reduces the risk of warping during printing and allows for finer details.
  • Biodegradability:
    • Being derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane, PLA is biodegradable.
  • Variety of colors and composites:
    • It is available in a wide range of colors and blends, offering many options for customization.
  • Good adhesion to the print bed:
    • This minimizes adhesion problems during printing.
      These factors help make PLA an excellent choice for many 3D printing projects.

However, it is important to remember that PLA can be sensitive to moisture and heat, so it must be stored and handled correctly to maintain its properties.

Easy to use but gentle because suffers heat and because of it deforms easily.
