3Dom USA introduces 100% bio-based filament spool and 3D printer filament made from sustainably produced NatureWorks Ingeo™ PLA.
The Eco-Spool™ by 3Dom USA is a first-of-its-kind spool designed specifically for environmental sustainability. As more businesses, schools, and individuals are 3D printing an increasing amount of empty filament spools will be filling up the planet. The Eco-Spool™ is made from 100% bio-based materials, ensuring that they will break down in landfills over a significantly shorter period of time.
Local, abundant and renewable plant resources produce simple sugars through photosynthesis. These plant sugars are then harvested and converted into lactic acid. A safe material naturally present in our bodies and in many of our foods, this lactic acid building block is transformed into Ingeo™, a performance thermoplastic tailored for filament production and printing.
Says co-founder John Schneider, “With 3Dom USA, we wanted to create something that allows 3D printing to move forward by creating a more sustainable product, but to make sure to remain uncompromising in our filament quality. With the Eco-Spool™ and Ingeo™ PLA, I believe that’s exactly what we’ve done.”
3Dom USA is the only independent NatureWorks-Preferred North American filament manufacturer and 3Dom’s first filament product is made from NatureWorks Ingeo™ PLA resin.

Notes on the product
3Dom USA Ingeo™ PLA filament is made to extremely tight tolerances. The two filament diameters, 1.75mm and 2.85mm, are manufactured using an in-line laser scanner to measure and control diameter and ovality tolerances of +/- 0.05mm (2.9% and 1.8% respectively)
Unlike any other filament manufacturers, filament diameter and ovality specs for each individual spool will be included in every 3Dom USA spool box. Customers no longer need to wonder if the filament they are purchasing is within tolerances, as they can verify right on the box.
