MakerBot PLA 1.75mm Filament - Translucent Purple
MakerBot PLA Filament is the best, safest, and most consistent filament for the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. PLA is a bioplastic derived from corn. It's guaranteed not to have any heavy metals, phthalates or BPA. Every filament color is comprehensively quality tested at both 100-micron and 200-micron layer resolutions on the MakerBot Replicator 2 to verify that the filament will perform every feature that MakerBot® MakerWare™ software offers and reliably slice and print every type of printing.
If you're new to 3D printing, MakerBot PLA Filament is a good material to start with because it's easy to use and performs well on most prints. MakerBot PLA Filament adheres well to acrylic and to blue painter's tape. Prints with a large bottom layer may have a tendency to curl. To prevent curling, use rafts.
Store MakerBot PLA Filament in a cool, dry place as it can absorb moisture from the air and long-term exposure to humidity can compromise filament quality and performances.
Be sure your build plate is level, clean and oil-free before printing.
