About

These are cost-effective and easy to print materials perfect for the early stages of development. They are ideal if you are doing many iterations of a project to hone your designs aesthetics and functionality. Not only are these great for creating functional working prototypes, but they are also excellent for general use projects and design.

About PLA

PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a corn based plastic. While strong, it does not hold up to high heat or extended UV lighting. It will biodegrade in the right conditions over the course of several years. It is the preferred material for early prototyping due to its ease of use, affordability and wide range of colors.

About Cf-PLA

CF-PLA (Carbon Fiber Polylactic Acid) is very similar to Standard PLA but is blended and composited with carbon fiber strands. This reduces the plastics tendency to warp in addition to adding rigidity. However the reduction of flex causes this material to be very brittle.  CF-PLA also leaves your prints with one the best surface finishes out of all the materials offered.
