Filament BCN3D PLA
PLA is the most commonly used filament in 3D FFF printers because of its ease of use and wide range of applications, especially those that do not require mechanical or thermal means.
Filament BCN3D PLA 2.85mm 750g
PLA (polylactic acid) is a biodegradable, durable and food-safe polymer made from organic sources.
This is the most commonly used filament in 3D FFF printers due to its ease of use and wide range of applications, especially those that do not require high mechanical or thermal resistance. PLA is an artistic material characterized by high quality of detail reproduction.
High-performance materials for professional prototyping
BCN3D filaments are manufactured by BASF and Mitsubishi Chemical, two of the world's best known chemical corporations. Experience and expert knowledge in the production of plastics, together with advanced production technology - provide filaments with the highest repeatability on the market. Each spool will consistently show the same quality and will always offer the same results.

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.
Store it in an airtight container with desiccant.
The process of developing a conceptual product design using 3D printing reduces the cost of product development and allows you to assess the functionality of a specific part. Due to the ease of printing and excellent visual effects - PLA is an ideal material for this type of prototype.
Models for client presentations
PLA is a good choice for building affordable models that need good surface quality for customer presentations, to help them better understand and visualize the product.
Detailed complex geometries
PLA is ideal for those models and prototypes that need and good surface quality and aesthetic detail. Also, is the perfect material for printing part that contain overhangs, complex geometries and intricate curves.
