PLA+ (Polylactic Acid)
PLA is one of the most popular 3D printing materials because it prints at low temperatures, doesn't require a heated bed, and doesn't warp. Due to its low printing temperature, it's usable with 3D printers and 3D printing pens! PLA is a biodegradable material made from renewable natural resources such as corn-starch.
What's the difference between PLA and PLA+?
PLA+ is made of the same great PLA but has different additives to toughen your prints, so they're even easier to print and more durable!
What is your SkinTones series and why is it $2 more?
We've created the SkinTones series to match different skin tones for prosthetics projects. We've been meaning to create this for awhile but what really triggered to start this was a little boy at ERRF 2019. With the help of Loubie and other community members, we came up with 3 colors to cover a range of skin tones: fair, tan, and dark.
The $2 increase goes towards helping prosthetics projects, namely Project E-nable. At this time proceeds will be donated there.

- Easy to print reliably.
- Low warping as compared to other materials.
- A heated bed is not required! We recommend using blue tape if you do not have a heated bed to prevent warping.
- Nontoxic, unlike ABS.
