The ease-to-print and the rigidity of the plastic PLA makes it an excellent material for optimum printing quality. This material tends to soften at around 50°C. PLA (Poly-Lactic Acid) is a biopolymer obtained from the starch of plants such as corn, cereals or cassava, and thereby the use of such biodegradable plastic in 3D printing allows for a significant reduction of toxin emission during melting. You are therefore respecting the environment as you print your masterpieces.
PLA is sensitive to moisture, consider storing it in a dry place. We also advise you to prefer the use of this plastic PLA rather than ABS for large flat pieces.
