PolyLite™ is a family of 3D printing filaments made with the best raw materials to deliver exceptional quality and reliability. PolyLite™ covers the most popular 3D printing materials to meet your everyday needs in design and prototyping. PolyLite™ PLA is a high-quality PLA designed for reliability and ease of printing.
PolyLite™ PLA features Jam-Free™ technology:
Jam-Free™ technology improves the heat stability of Polymaker’s PLA filaments with softening temperatures over 140 °C. As a result, Polymaker’s PLA filaments show minimal softening in the “cold end” and can melt rapidly once entering the heating zone, leading to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep.
PolyLite ™ PLA Features
Compatibility In Mind - High Quality PLA filament compatible with a wide range of 3D printers including models from Makerbot, FlashForge, Monoprice, Lulzbot, Ultimaker, Prusa Research, Raise3D, Tiertime and other popular extrusion based 3D printers (Heated bed may be required in some cases).
Easy to Print - Works well with common printing surfaces such as the blue tape, Kapton tape, glass, BuildTak, etc. No heated bed required but can be used for better results (up to 60°C).
Safe and Clean - Polymaker use only PLA resins from Nature Works for the filaments manufacture. PolyLite™ PLA is also plasticizer free.
Affordable Technology - Polymakers industry leading filament quality and Jam-Free™ technology now available at an affordable price.
Uncompromised Quality - With Polymaker's leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing, you can rest assured that PolyLite™ PLA will produce beautiful, reliable and accurate printed parts.

Magigoo Original is an easy to use 3D printing adhesive designed to address 'the first layer not sticking problem'. Magigoo ensures a strong adhesion to the hot plate. But the magic starts when printing is ready: just wait for the plate to cool down and then remove your prints with just a finger flick! Magigoo Original is a 3D printing adhesive for ABS, PLA, PETG, HIPS, TPU & ASA filaments.
Magigoo Original Features
Easy application: Applying Magigoo is as easy as child's play. Shake, press, apply. Spread on an active printing area only. No need to cover the whole surface
Easy-release: Magigoo adhesive properties are designed to release the 3D print once the build plate has cooled.
Easy-clean: Magigoo is easily cleaned with water.
Long-lasting: Magigoo last for 100+ average prints.
Odorless and safe: Magigoo is safe to use - be it in a closed room or educational workshop with kids.

Storage & Drying
MAGIGOO Original is best stored upright, with the cap closed and away from direct sunlight.
Before packaging, PolyLite™ PLA is dried to ensure the best printing quality and filaments are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture.
While not a strict requirement to use PolyLite™ PLA, we recommend that the material be used with the PolyBox™ or a dry cabinet during printing to keep the filament at dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less) to prevent moisture absorption which will lower the quality and the mechanical properties of the print.
When not in use PolyLite™ PLA should be stored away from sunlight in the packaged resealable bag. If the filament does absorb moisture, spools of PolyLite™ PLA can be dried in a preheated convection oven at 80˚C for up to 8 hours. Results may vary depending on the accuracy of your oven so please be conservative. For more information about filament drying please read our user guide.

PolyLite™ PLA has been engineered with compatibility in mind to print excellently on a wide range of 3D printers.
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.
PolyLite™ PLA FAQ
Q: How does PolyLite™ PLA compare to other PLA materials?
A: Like Polymaker's other products, PolyLite™ PLA is designed specifically with 3D printing in mind. PolyLite™ PLA is manufactured with Polymaker's patented Jam-Free™ technology to prevent heat creep jamming and during R&D, significant time was spent optimizing the softening temperature, material flow and printing characteristics to ensure excellent results on a wide range of 3D printers.
Q: Does Jam-Free™ technology prevent all filament jamming?
A: Jam-Free™ technology is designed to prevent jamming caused by heat creep. There are many reasons why a material may jam, such as printing with the wrong extruder temperature or incorrect nozzle height; Polymaker's Jam-Free™ technology won't prevent jamming in these cases.
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; we have many customers printing large full-size printing projects in PolyLite™ PLA. 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.
Q: What support materials can I use with this product?
A: Polymaker’s PolyDissolve™ S1 or PolySupport™ filament are the recommended support filaments for PolyLite™ PLA. If your 3D printer is not equipped for multi-material, self-support can be used.
Don't know where to start? Or which filament will suit your application? We have a broad range of support options including telephone support. Contact us today!
Q: How do I apply Magigoo?
A: It is best to apply Magigoo when the printing bed is cool. Before applying, shake the Magigoo pen like you mean it, press down the nib on the printing bed for Magigoo to flow. Spread more or less evenly on the printing area. It is enough to cover your active print area with an even thin layer. DO NOT SQUEEZE the bottle to avoid applicator popping off. Applicator has a valve which is activated once you push on it.
Q: Do I need to apply Magigoo everytime?
A: For good and reliable adhesion we recommend to apply Magigoo every time.
Q: How do I clean my bed after using Magigoo?
A: After your prints have finished and popped off, clean the printing bed by wiping with a damp cloth. Yes, just water is enough.
Q: How long will Magigoo last for?
A: One Magigoo 50ml pen is good for on average 100 prints. There is no firm best before date as it will vary depending on use and storing conditions - Once opened, we recommend to use it in a couple of months.
Q: Will Magigoo work with my existing printing surface?
A: Magigoo was originally formulated with borosilicate glass surfaces in mind however we have also had good success applying Magigoo to surfaces like Buildtak, in these cases Magigoo can work as a release agent for materials which can over-adhere like PET with PEI.
