Flashforges regular PLA
Derived from renewable resources such as corn starch and sugarcane, PLA is one of the most popular 3D Printing materials for prototypers, educators and hobbyists due to its low printing requirements and excellent dimensional stability at a low cost. Flashforge PLA has been engineered with Flashforge 3D printers in mind and of course offers good compatibility with other 3D printer brands. No heated bed required but can be used for better results (up to 60°C).

Storage & Drying: When not in use Flashforge PLA should be stored away from sunlight in the packaged resealable bag. If the filament does absorb moisture, spools can be dried in a preheated convection oven. Flashforge have not provided drying instructions for this product so please be conservative. For more information about filament drying please read our user guide.
Specifications like spool dimensions may be subject to change without notice.
FlashForge PLA has been engineered for the Flashforge range of 3D printers however also offers good compatibility with other brands.
If your 3D printer suffers from heat creep we highly recommend purchasing Polymakers PolyLite™ PLA or PolyMax™ PLA filaments. These two Polymaker filaments are manufactured with Jam-Free™ technology to prevent heat creep related jamming.
Of course with thousands of unique 3d printer models on the market, we can't guarantee each filament type will work with every 3D printer.
Q: Can PLA be printed at large scales without warping?
A: One of the benefits of PLA is the ability to print large parts with excellent dimensional stability. Please note that while PLA materials don't warp in most situations, printing with poor first layer adhesion can cause any material to warp and printing or the heated bed too hot can cause any PLA filament to crystallize rapidly, creating internal stress and warping.
