Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a strong, renewable thermoplastic that dominates the 3D printing world. Notable for its ease of use and biodegradability, PLA is versatile and a great filament to start with. PLA finds application in the medical world and food industry thanks to its low toxicity and biodegradability. PLA’s low glass transition temperature causes it to burn away in high temperatures, making it useful for casting. Its chemical nature also makes it easy to recycle and reuse. For those looking for a place to start, PLA is an excellent choice.
