3D Universe Terrafilum Tough PLA Filament (1.75mm)

3D Universe Terrafilum Tough PLA is an industrial grade bio-plastic - industrial grade with excellent detail and precision performance; professional series PLA for higher impact and heat-resistance. Ideal when parts need to be precise and functional.

Recommended print settings:

  • Print temperature: 215-235C
  • Bed Temperature: 60C
  • Fan Speed: 100%

Note that the 3kg and 9kg spools will require the use of external spool holder. We recommend making a "lazy-susan" style spool holder so the spool can lay horizontally and unwind smoothly. Consider printing this model using the 51mm adapter that's included.

What Makes 3D Universe Terrafilum Materials Unique?

Like you, we also love our planet. That’s why we have painstakingly considered the environmental impact our products could have on our environment. We determined that using recycled plastic for 3D printing is a fantastic solution. We are happy to provide our clients with a recycling program that ensures the maximum amount of material that might otherwise be discarded as waste, is returned to us where it is recycled and repurposed into more of our wonderful product.

All 3D Universe Terrafilum materials include the following features:

  • High Compatibility – Compatible with most FDM Printers, consistent diameter, dimensional accuracy +/- 0.03mm
  • Long Prints – Consistent coil, even melt for better layer adhesion, smooth nozzle, and extruder performance
  • Superior Construction – Materials are USA produced using sustainable formulations
  • Excellent Performance – Each batch is test printed to ensure quality controls and color consistency

Diameters: 1.75mm and 2.85mm

Colors: Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Black, White, Natural, Purple, and Orange

For Best Print Results, Try Magigoo Original

Magigoo is an easy-to-use 3D printing adhesive designed to provide excellent print bed adhesion for a variety of 3D printing materials. Apply Magigoo to your unheated print bed. When the print is finished, wait for the plate to cool down and your prints will pop right off the bed! Magigoo also helps to prevent warping, even with more challenging materials like ABS and ASA.

Key features include:

  • Compatible with ABS, PLA, PETG, HIPS, ASA, and TPU
  • Available in 50ml and 120ml sizes
  • Easy application
  • Easy release
  • Easy cleaning (just use water)
  • No smell
  • Non-toxic
  • No additional tools needed
  • Easy to transport
  • Nicer print finish

Get the Quality Filament You Need

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...
