Ultimaker PLA (polylactic acid) is highly versatile, easy to print, and available in 11 colors. It prints reliably with high dimensional accuracy and a quality surface finish. This makes it an ideal material for a range of applications – from detailed prototypes to simple manufacturing jigs and gauges.
Ultimaker PLA filament provides a no-hassle 3D printing experience thanks to its reliability and good surface quality. Ultimaker PLA is made from organic and renewable sources. It’s safe, easy to print with, and it serves a wide range of applications for both novice and advanced users.
Ultimaker extensively test their PLA material for hassle-free 3D printing.

Ultimaker PLA can be printed on all Ultimaker 3D printers with all nozzle sizes as a single material. On the Ultimaker S5, S3 and Ultimaker 3, you should use the AA print cores.
Storage & Drying
It is recommended to store Ultimaker PLA material in a resealable dag with desiccant away from sunlight. This helps avoid moisture absorption from air and long-term exposure to humidity which can compromise material quality and performance.
The 3D printed test specimens were printed in the XY plane, using the normal quality profile in Ultimaker Cura 2.1, an Ultimaker 2+, a 0.4 mm nozzle, 90% infill, 210 °C nozzle temperature, and 60 °C.
