MakerBot PLA Filament is the best, most consistent, and most tested filament for the MakerBot® Replicator® 2 Desktop 3D Printer.
MakerBot PLA Filament is a bioplastic derived from corn. It's guaranteed to have no heavy metals phthalates, or BPA.
Each filament color is comprehensively quality tested at both 100-micron and 200- micron layer resolutions on the MakerBot Replicator 2 to verify it will perform every feature that MakerBot® MakerWare™ software offers and reliably slice and print every type of 3D model.
If you're new to 3D printing, MakerBot PLA Filament is a good material to start with because it's easy to use and performs well on most prints.
MakerBot PLA Filament adheres well to acrylic and to blue painter's tape. Prints with a large bottom layer may have a tendency to curl. To prevent curling, use rafts.
Store MakerBot PLA Filament in a cool, dry place as it can absorb moisture from the air and long-term exposure to humidity can compromise filament quality and performances.
Be sure your build plate is level, clean and oil-free before printing.
