Workday PLA is made from NatureWorks™ 3D850 and is the first plastic ever designed from the beginning to be used in 3D Printing!

Some customers call this "model gray" because it's just the right color for matching the plastic that model ships and planes are made from. 

Available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameter, Industrial Gray Workday PLA will help your 3D printed projects look amazing and perform amazingly. You can anneal your design after 3D printing for even better heat resistance than ABS.

Our Workday PLA is the first 3D Filament ever made from plastic that was engineered and designed with 3D Printing in mind. All others before have been made from plastic designed for injection molding and do not have the advanced characteristics for 3D Printing. It actually outperforms standard PLA and even ABS!

[Formerly known as Battleship Gray]

Note: Prusa Mk 2.5s and newer have an over-bored heat break for enhanced compatibility with their Multi-Material Unit upgrade. This causes a problem with our Workday PLA as it will start to anneal in the heat break. Standard PLA and Pro PLA do not have this problem. Only Workday PLA does. 3D-Fuel recommends our Standard or Pro PLA products for these printers.

Diameter Tolerance:
Variable diameter can cause big problems in your 3D printer. We use a multi-axis laser measurement system to control our filament diameter and ovality in real time during production. Every spool has the diameter and ovality measurements listed right on the box.

Packing Information:
A full 1kg (2.2lbs) of Industrial Gray Workday PLA plastic filament arrives on an easy-to-use plastic reel and is vacuum sealed with a desiccant packet to keep out any moisture.

Test Printing:
The 3D-Fuel test lab features multiple brands of 3D printers including Raise3D, MakerBot, LulzBot, FlashForge, and more. We 3D print what we manufacture to ensure that our filament provides the absolute best quality possible.
