PLA Sleek will make your prints really stand out and shine. It produce prints with a silky and a bit translucent appearance. It is a blend of high quality PLA (Ingeo 3D850) with industry leading elastomers and other additives which will ensure precise, beautiful prints. Our materials are thoroughly tested to guarantee the least amount of imperfections — you can count on our PLA SLEEK to meet your structural and aesthetic needs.
This type of filament is the go-to for both beginner and experienced 3D printing enthusiasts. It provides a shiny print that helps to blend together the appearance of the layering. It is often the choice for makers whose primary interest is in making prints that look silky and glossy. Our filament is tested to be strong and durable, with minimal warping.
Sleek PLA has very good 3D printing characteristics, including detail precision, on the majority of desktop and industrial 3D printers (it was tested on a range of printers - see details on Replitech website)
The diameter of the filament is closely monitored during production to ensure a close tolerance. The actual diameter limits of each spool are recorded on a label attached on the spool.
The quantity of filament in this package is almost double than the classic 1kg spool. For this reason, the spool is slightly larger. Please check the spool size dimensions to see if it fits on your 3D printing setup.
It has good adhesion to build plates. For improved bed adhesion we recommend to use glue (Elmer's Disappearing Purple and other similar).
It has minimal warping and curling, and low odor when printing.
It has a lower environmental impact than other 3D printing materials
- Bed temperature 60±5°C;
- Nozzle temperature 215±5°C; - It sticks well on a variety of build plates (PEI, glass, tape, etc.); We recommend using water soluble glue; - Print speed: 40 - 100 mm/s (depending on your hot end melting capability and nozzle orifice size) - Like most 3D printing materials, this one is hygroscopic, (i.e. it absorbs water from its surroundings). For better printing results, when storing, use the included bag and desiccant to keep the material as dry as possible.
