PLA (polylactic acid) is a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch, cassava roots, chips or starch, or sugarcane.  


The BotFeeder Original PLA, also known as Pure PLA, is the safest choice.  During printing, It emits relatively low level of VOCs compared to other filament due to the fact that it is nearly 100% PLA.

    At BotFeeder we have a well equipped 3D printing studio with a lot of popular 3D printers. We know our materials will give you excellent results and to help you get these results here are tips and trick for using BotFeeder 3D printing filament.


    Extrusion Temperature: 200 to 220C
    Print Bed Temperature: 60 to 70C (optional)


    Build Platform:
    For BotFeeder PLA we advice to print on a heated bed. After printing, the build plate needs to cool down to about 20-30 C at which point you can remove the printed part.

    Care

    Storing Your Filament

    Please note that improper storage may damage your filament. To maintain its original quality, it's strongly recommended that the filament be stored in the following conditions:

    • A dehumidifier cabinet or a dry and circulated area
    • Room temperature
    • Avoid direct sunlight or heat source

    Selecting A Printer Location

    Please note poor printer location will have a negative effect on your print result and possible of damaging your filament. To select the most ideal location for your printer, please follow this guide.

    • Consistent temperature
    • Stable air flow
    • Away from furniture for safety

    Avoid Tangling Your Filament

    When unpacking, changing filament or unloading, It is strongly suggested to get a good grip at the end of the filament at all times in order to prevent tangling. The spool holder is specifically designed with 2 holes of each side, allowing you to secure the end of the filament by threading into it. or you can simply 3D print a "Filament clip" that is attached to the spool holder itself.

    If Filament Gets Damp

    Dry it slowly in room temperature. Please note that heat drying the filament will damages its quality by making it become brittle. The preferred method of drying your filament is to put in a dehumidifier cabinet or in an airtight bag with a few packs of desiccants. It's recommended to maintain a humidity level of 25% or less.


    Quality

    In-House Production

    All BotFeeder 3D Printer Filaments are produced in our own production facility, situated in the Taiwan. Since no external parties are involved in the making of BotFeeder filament we can ensure consistent quality on every order.


    Excellent Diameter Tolerance

    An important machine in our production are the laser measurement systems used to check the diameter of our filament real time during production. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and helps us guarantee that each spool of BotFeeder 3d printing filament produced within tolerance. We can guarantee 0.03mm +/- on both 2.90mm and 1.75mm BotFeeder 3D Printer Filament, which means you can rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material.


    Packaging

    Within minutes of production a spool of BotFeeder 3d printing filament is wrapped with a protective film and then sealed airtight with a double barrier foil. To ensure minimal moisture, we upgraded to a large pack of desiccant.  To go the extra mile, we’ll also seal the fancy cardboard box that we use to ship our product. You can make sure BotFeeder 3d printing filament is fresh and ready for 3d printing when you’re done unboxing.
