PLA (Polylactic Acid)is easy to print, lower temp filament and it doesn’t warp easily. Pla is the base material in most of the exotic filaments and it is made out of renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane, make it is a biodegradable filament.
PLA is used in 3D printing using the FDM (fused deposition modeling) technology, and along with ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), this material is one of the standard materials for this technology. There is often a tendency to compare these plastic materials, as they are the two alternatives available for consumer printers. PLA plastic material is easy-to-use.
PLA material has numerous advantages, and that is precisely why this is the most used plastic material for desktop 3D printers. PLA filaments come in a lot of different shades, styles, that can fit many different applications.
It comes in the form of wire on a spool, which is fed into the extruder head where the plastic is melted and deposited into fine drops on the printing tray.
PLA can be useful for your product development, as this material can be used for rapid prototyping, are toys, figurines, non-functional prototypes, etc.
