Description

This Hawaii Blue PLA filament has been specifically approved by the manufacturers of the UP range of 3D printers for the best print quality and consistency. PLA filament requires lower operating temperatures than ABS filaments. To use it with your UP 3D printer, check that you have the latest version of the UP software. PLA support was added in version 2.11 so check that you have this version or higher. The latest version of the software can be downloaded from http://www.pp3dp.com. Click on the 3D Print menu and go to maintenance, then click New Spool and from the drop down menu, select PLA rather than ABS. Why use PLA? There are pros and cons to using both ABS and PLA and which one you choose will depend largely on the model you are making, it's application and the finish you are looking for. PLA can be melted at lower temperatures and the odour when printing is slightly more pleasant than ABS. However, because PLA melts at lower temperatures, it can be prone to drooping if left in a really warm place for extended periods, especially if the model has thin, unsupported parts.
