Pro PLA

Our Pro PLA is the best PLA product available for printing your projects. Made from NatureWorks™ 3D870 Ingeo PLA, it offers a third-generation level of design for 3D-Printing due to the engineering put into the plastic. And... it's made from corn!

Pro PLA (APLA+) has higher impact strength than ABS and Standard PLA with a heat resistance rivaling that of ABS! Available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameter, new Pro PLA will help your 3D printed projects look amazing and perform amazingly. Anneal your design after 3D printing for even better heat resistance.

Our Pro PLA is engineered and designed specifically with 3D Printing in mind. Pro PLA was designed with the high impact strength needed in industrial applications to meet the growing demand by companies for a material with the properties of ABS, but the printability of PLA.

Pro PLA / APLA+ boasts 4.3 times the impact strength of PLA. Even before post-processing, Pro PLA exhibits significantly higher impact strength than ABS.

Quality: All 3D-Fuel 3D printer filament is manufactured in our own production facility located in Fargo, North Dakota or in Moville, Ireland (depending on customer location). We have complete control over the manufacturing process and are able to ensure consistent quality for every spool.

Learn more about 3D-Fuel filament quality.

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 Fire Engine Red Pro 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.

Technical Info: 
Pro PLA (formerly APLA+) has higher impact strength than ABS and PLA with a heat resistance rivaling that of ABS! Available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameter, new Pro PLA will help your 3D printed projects look amazing and perform amazingly. 

Anneal your design after 3D printing for even better heat resistance. 
Pro PLA is engineered and designed specifically with 3D printing in mind. Pro PLA was designed with the high impact strength needed in industrial applications to meet the growing demand by companies for a material with the properties of ABS, but the printability of PLA. Without any annealing/heat treating, Pro PLA displays impact strength levels at 8 times that of standard PLA and 1.5 times that of ABS. Annealing Pro PLA gives it over 12x the impact strength of standard PLA and over twice that of ABS. Even before post-processing, Pro PLA exhibits significantly higher impact strength than ABS.

Recommended Print Settings: Extruder Temp: 210-240C (varies by printer) 
Heated Bed Temp: 0-60C (heated bed not required) 
Bed Surface: Bare acrylic, blue painters tape + hairspray, glass + hairspray, BuildTak (or similar bed surface), PEI (with heated bed @ 45-60C)
