Compatible with the 3Doodler make your own sea effect, brightly coloured kingfisher or just bring some colour into your designs with the ‘Tealtastic’ PLA filament (PL17-TEAL). The filament is 3mm PLA which is a biodegradable plastic with a glossy sheen.
What’s in this pack?
The pack comes as 25 strands, each 254mm (10 inch) long. For every inch of strand the 3Doodler can produce up to 10 inches of doodle. The 3Doodler is compatible with both ABS and PLA.
PLA is a bio-degradable material made from renewable sources such as sugar. The plastic has a lower melting point than alternatives and when heated it gives of a semi-sweet smell. Available in a variety of fun colours PLA comes in glossy, metallic, translucent and glow in the dark for additional effects. PLA sticks easier to a multitude of surfaces including glass, metal and acrylic and is better for drawing acute angles.
If you’re looking to use or store your doodle in warmer areas the alternative ABS has a reduced chance of warping at higher temperatures. ABS can also give more flexibility to a doodle.
Storing my filament when not in use
All filaments work better when they are stored in a dry and dust free environment as moisture can create problems with printing and reduce the lifespan of the filament. To protect your filament it is best to store it in a sealed container or bag with an added sachet of silica gel to ensure when you come to use, or reuse it, you’ll have the best quality doodle every time. When reusing a strand trim off the part-melted tips to improve the feed.
