PLA, or Poly Lactic Acid, is an organic material mainly produced from cornstarch and sugarcane. It gives a smooth and shiny appearance to the prints, which is much appreciated by products designers and architects. A low-warp material, PLA is easy to print and is a great general purpose filament.
PLA (Polylactic Acid) is an environmentally friendly thermoplastic polymer, more specifically from corn starch or sugar cane. It tends to naturally break down in about three to six months. PLA can also deform at a high temperature. Outside of 3D printing, PLA is also used to produce parts and prototypes like medical implants, food packaging, and disposable tableware.
