At 3D Universe, our streamlined approach is to deliver a focused set of products that perform exceptionally well. Filament is no exception. As such, we are especially pleased to announce that we are now carrying Ultimaker's own brand of filament. We can now offer our customers filament that is designed specifically for use with Ultimaker 3D printers.
Easy-to-Use, Remarkable Quality, & Good to Mother Earth
Ultimaker PLA possesses the relative durability of PLA. Finished print surfaces will have a shiny finish, and can be further smoothed with chloroform. Novices will appreciate Ultimaker PLA's ease-of-use in getting started with 3D printing. Advanced users will keep coming back to it for high-quality prints. And because it's a PLA, it's plant-based, non-toxic and biodegradable.
While you can easily use the default printer settings, the temperature for PLA ranges between 190ºC and 210ºC, with heated bed temperatures between 60ºC and 65ºC. For first layer adhesion, we recommend using PVA glue or Aquanet Extra Hold hairspray.
Works With Most 3D Printers That Accept 2.85 mm
Ultimaker PLA is tested primarily for use with Ultimaker 3D Printers. But, it will also function quite well on any other printer that works with standard 2.85 mm size filaments. This includes LulzBot 3D Printers.
Anyone that has used the spool of Ultimaker PLA that comes with any Ultimaker 3D printer is already acquainted with its quality. If you haven't used in it in a while, grab a spool and try it. You will not be disappointed.
Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
