1.75mm or 3mm grey PLA 3D printer filament is an ideal choice for general 3D printing, test prints, calibration, and design. It’s also a great choice for robots, mechanical parts, or model cars. Our gray 3D printing filament is tested and quality controlled to provide maximum extrusion performance for any object design. Both 3mm and 1.75mm grey PLA filament are offered in 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools. Although grey is darker than white PLA, it’s still suitable for painting.
Polyactic Acid (PLA) is biodegradable and made from materials such as corn starch, tapioca roots, and sugarcane. Considered one of the most popular 3D printing filaments for sale today, it’s a multiple purpose material with high strength and minimal warping.
Extrusion Temperature Range: 190 oC – 230 oC
Storage Requirements: Store in an airtight container or bag at room temperature. PLA will absorb moisture; thereby affecting the dimensional tolerances of your 3D printer filament. Use airtight storage containers, buckets, or zip lock bags to keep the material free from humidity.
Compatibility: Our 1.75mm and 3mm gray Polyactic Acid 3D printing filament for sale is inspected, tested, and confirmed to work with all FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printers. This includes popular brands such as Printrbot, Ultimaker, Afnia, Up!, Type A Machines, Solidoodle, Flashforge, Airwolf3D, Makergear, RepRap, and Makerbot (Replicator and Replicator 2).
3D Printing Helpful Hint: When receiving PLA 3D printing filament, always check the surface of the filament. Is it smooth to the touch or grainy? If it’s grainy, consider a different supplier. There’s a good chance that filament could contain impurities that will hinder your 3D printer’s performance.
Fun Fact: Gray and Grey are simply different spellings of the same color. In American English, Gray is the preferred spelling. In all other forms of English, Grey is used.
