Cubify ABS printer cartridges provide a balanced combination of mechanical toughness, wide temperature range, good dimensional stability, chemical resistance, electrical insulating properties, and ease of fabrication. ABS cartridges are 100% recyclable
PLA plastic is excellent for fine details, large bold prints and soluble support structures. With multi-jet printers, it can be used as opposite material when printing with ABS and easly peeled off from the final print.
PLA is probably the easiest material to work with when using a filament-based 3D Printer. It is a biodegradable thermoplastic that has been derived from renewable resources such as starch and sugar canes. This makes PLA environmentally friendly and very safe to work with.
PLA also has a very sharp glass transition point so if you use a fan to cool it on printing, it will set to solid very quickly. This has the advantage of achieving a greater range of geometries than are possible with other plastics. It also reduces the thermal stress on the printed part - warping becomes less of an issue in larger parts when you print with PLA. It does not require any curing or post-production treatment. Should you wish to, PLA can be sanded and coated with automotive spray filler and it can also be painted over with acrylic paint. PLA prints parts that require break off support material.
