Ultimaker green PLA is an easy-to-print strong 3D printing filament based on the Polylactic Acid polymer. It is made from renewable resources. This means it is completely biodegradable and environmentally friendly. When printed, it doesn’t produce fumes or emissions being perfect for kids and adults alike. Its ease of printing depends both on its low melting temperature and purity. You can print it either on a cold or heated bed using the FDM 3D printer you prefer. When printed on a heated build plate, the recommended bed temperature is 60°C.
Ultimaker green PLA is really versatile. It can be used to produce a broad range of different models giving you wide design flexibility. It can be printed at high speeds always delivering a good surface quality. It offers good flexural and impact strength. Its purity and precise diameter of 2.85mm let it flow smoothly reducing the risk of clogging caused by impurities or thread deformations. It produces flawless and dimensionally accurate prints with a smooth green finish brilliant in color.
Many makers, designers and engineers use Ultimaker PLA filaments for rapid prototyping, design proofing, investment casting, and more. It is widely adopted for dual extrusion along with PLA, PVA and Breakaway support filaments. Depending on your printing needs, you can choose between a 350g or a 750g spool.
This print turned out amazing on our Ultimaker S5! This was printed with standard settings, with a 0.2 layer height, and with Ultimaker PLA.
This amazing fire breathing dragon has been printed at 0.2mm layer height with Ultimaker green PLA on an Ultimaker S5 3D printer. Look at the pic, it came through really accurate and detailed. It even sparkles!
