Makerbot PLA - Large
Here at The 3D Printer People we only ever recommend the use of genuine, manufacturer branded materials.
MakerBot PLA Filament is the only genuine and consistent filament designed to be used with the 5th generation MakerBot Replicator and Replicator Mini 3D printers. Manufactured with the purest grade resin available on the market and rigourously quality tested by MakerBot (to Stratasys standards), our PLA filament reduces potential downtime and let's you produce the best quality items every time.
We think Bre Pettis, the Makerbot Founder, sums it up very nicely below
"The great thing about MakerBots is that they’re fast, they’re nontoxic, they’re friendly and, when you’re done, you just take (the object) off of the build plate and it’s ready to go. If you want to get this technology around kids, you can’t have it be toxic. PLA (plastic) is just a wonderful renewable biomaterial. When you think about metal, there’s things that happen when metal melts. You probably don’t want that in your house. We’re focused on things that people can have comfortably on their desktops or in their living rooms that are friendly."
