PLA is the most popular and affordable material used in 3D printing. Due to its plant-based components, this odorless PLA+ filament is an eco-friendly thermoplastic. You will notice a glossy type finishing to your 3D printed project. Due to its ease of use, PLA+ filament is considered to go-to 3D printing filament for household prints.
Colors in back-order can take up to 5 -10 business days to be in stock again.
Gerald Bayne –
I am new to 3d printing. Bought a Sovol SV06. Printed with the sample PLA with success. Switched to this PLA+ and it would not stick to the PEI bed. Started my learning process. I contacted Sales here not wanting to use social media, blogs etc. and possibly giving this product a bad image. I am glad I did, they pointed me down the right road, much help right here on this site. I found that the advice to use IPA to clean the bed will not work, there is a chemical reaction with the PEI that makes it as slick as Teflon for this filament. Just wash the build plate with dish soap and one of the scrubby sponges. At one point I had the whole thing covered in glue stick. All clean now and using slower speeds first layer, no fan on the first layer, a thicker layer height first layer and 25% over extrusion first layer. Using 220 for the nozzle and 60 for the bed I am getting great consistent results. 70 for the bed actually caused warping and made things worse. I intend to make this my standard PLA+ going forward.
Gerald, thanks for your comment; I’m glad that it did help. We’re not a big company, so we cannot monitor all our social media to check for comments and messages; we do have a Discord server with people always willing to help there (me included): https://discord.gg/KMTUAJxetN.
I would do (for a 0.4mm nozzle) if you are using a 0.20mm layer:
0.3mm first layer height
0.44mm or 0.48mm layer width
No fan on the first 3 or 4 layers
15mm/s printing speed on the first layer
40mm/s travel speed first layer
