Gizmo Dorks PLA filament is made from the highest quality virgin material. PLA, Polylactic Acid, is created from processing a number of plant products. PLA can be composted at commercial facilities unlike ABS which is derived from fossil fuels. PLA is a more earth friendly plastic and more rigid than ABS, and in general the printed objects will have a more glossy look and feel compared to ABS. PLA can be sanded and machined. PLA has a lower melting temperature compared to ABS. As a material, PLA has much less warping versus ABS. Additionally, a heated bed is not required to print it. PLA generally enjoys sharper details and corners compared to ABS without the risk of cracking or warping. PLA can also be printed at higher throughput speeds.Color changing filament is a special filament formulation that changes color when heat is applied. When the temperature of the plastic rises above approximately 88 F, the filament will change to another color. This also means that the plastic will change colors simply by touch such as when holding it in your hand. When the temperature drops down below 88 F, the filament changes back to it’s default color.Extrusion Temperature: 190 – 225 CHeated Bed: Not required but recommended at 60 CDiameter: 2.85mm +/- 0.03mmNet Weight: 200 gramsColors available in 200g sizeStandard – Black, Blue, Glow in the Dark, Green, Grey, Orange, Purple, Red, Transparent, and WhiteHeat Color Changing Colors – Blue to White, Green to Yellow, Gray to White, and Purple to PinkBlack Light Reactive Colors – Fluorescent YellowGizmo Dorks has proudly released this filament with a net weight 200 grams. The smaller weight spool allows users to try the filament quality and color before committing to a larger 1 kilogram spool. It’s a perfect size to sample!

Buyer Guide 3D Printing Supplies

 When shopping for materials for your 3D printer, it’s important to do your homework. 3D printing isn’t cheap, so you’ll want to purchase the best supplies you can.

  • Consider the 3D printer. Some printers have certain materials that they work best with.
  • Consider the material. Some materials work better with certain printers.
  • Consider the extruder. Some printers work best with an extruder that is compatible with their materials.
  • Consider the PLA/ABS ratio. PLA and ABS have different melting points. Some printers work best with one type of material.

How to choose 3D Printing Supplies

 When shopping for 3D printing supplies, it’s important to keep in mind a few key factors:

  • What kind of plastic do you want? Deciding what kind of plastic you want your plastic to be printed with can have a huge impact on the price of the product.
  • What type of print do you want? The number of layers, speed, and other features offered on your printer will likely influence what kind of plastic you choose.
  • How big is the print? The size of the print will also impact the price of the product since larger prints require more materials.
  • What type of printer do you have? When shopping online for 3D printing supplies, you will need to consider the type of printer you have.
  •  What type of material do you need? The type of material you choose will also play a major role in determining how much your printing will cost.

How to maintain 3D Printing Supplies

 3D printing supplies need regular maintenance in order to function properly. Experts recommend cleaning the filament before using and storing the printer parts in dust-free cabinets.

  • Clean the filament. Before placing your filament in the printer, it needs to be washed to remove any dust or other debris. To clean the filament, use a brush and warm water.
  • Store the printer parts in dust-free cabinets. Dust can harm the filament and the printer parts. Experts recommend storing the printer parts in dust-free cabinets or cabinets with ventilation.
  • Replace the filament. Over time, the filament can degrade, which reduces the sturdiness of the plastic. If your filament has any cracks or breaks, it needs to be replaced.
  • Inspect the printer parts. When the filament is not being used, inspect the printer parts. If there are any scratches or dents, they will need to be fixed.
