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.Extrusion Temperature: 190 – 225 CHeated Bed: Not required but recommended at 60 CDiameter: 1.75mm +/- 0.03mmNet Weight: 200 gramsAvailable Colors in 200g Size: Black, Blue, Glow in the Dark, Green, Grey, Orange, Purple, Red, Transparent, and WhiteGizmo 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.

Buyer Guide 3D Printing Supplies

It’s always a good idea to have a firm understanding of each individual component, and go from there.

  • Filament, or “muck.” The filament is a plastic used in 3D printing. It’s usually available in different diameters and colors.
  • Printer. There are different kinds of 3D printers, including desktop, industrial, and open-source models.
  • Software. There are several different types of printing software, including slicers, slicer-creator, and hosts.
  • Support Material. Support material is a support material used in 3D printing. There are usually 2 types: soluble support material and solid support material
  • PLA (Polylactic acid): PLA filament is biodegradable, renewable, and compostable.
  • ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene): ABS filament is stronger, tougher, and better than PLA.

How to choose 3D Printing Supplies

 Choosing 3D printing supplies requires a little bit of experimentation. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for materials:

  • The ABS plastic used in 3D-printed objects often has a bit of giving when it’s warm. This makes it ideal for producing small, fragile, or flexible objects.
  • PLA (polylactic acid) is a type of biodegradable plastic that’s commonly used by hobbyists and artists. PLA is edible and can be easily recycled after use.
  • Supports can be added to 3D printed objects, which help the 3D printed object stay upright during the printing process. Support material can be included in the print file, or removed manually afterward.

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.
