About PLA

PLA is a suitable material for making decorative products by means of FDM 3D printing. Because it solidifies faster than PETG, details come out better.

FAQ

The delivery time per order depends on the selected production speed in the configurator. For large orders of tens, hundreds or thousands of pieces, please contact us.

PLA is a biological material, it becomes porous when exposed to UV and moisture. The material is biodegradable and therefore only suitable for interior decoration products.

With the standard option we make the products with a filling of 20%. This saves material costs and production time. The solid option means that we completely fill the model.

The difference between our standard and premium product is the layer thickness that is applied when producing the products. A smaller layer thickness makes details more visible and the model can feel smoother.

If you choose the standard option, your product will be FDM 3D printed in layers of 0.2mm. Our standard option is the most chosen option among our customers.

FDM standard quality

If you choose the premium option, your product FDM 3D will be printed in layers of 0.1mm. By reducing the layer height, the product feels smoother than the standard layer height of 0.2mm.
