Description

FormFutura 1.75mm EasyFil™ – PLA – Dark Blue

Dark Blue EasyFil PLA is a high-end “easy to use” impact modified PLA (Poly-Lactic Acid). A type of 3D printer filament which is optimized for FFF / FDM 3D printing technology. EasyFil PLA is tougher and less rigid than standard PLA and its improved filament flowing behaviour and interlayer adhesion make EasyFil PLA an extremely easy to print filament.

Easy to print at low temperature

FormFutura EasyFil™ PLA – compared to regular PLA – is EasyFil™’s low shrinkage factor. This makes EasyFil™ PLA nearly warp-free and therefore EasyFil™ PLA will not deform after cooling. Due to its low tendency to warp EasyFil™ PLA can be printed without a heated print bed. If your printer is however equipped with a heated print bed. We recommend setting your heat bed temperature to ± 35° to 60°C.

The Formfutura EasyFil™ filament range has an excellent roundness and very tight diameter and roundness tolerances. This makes this filament a perfect match with all common desktop 3D printers. Printing with EasyFil™ PLA 3D printer filament will go very smoothly with basically all FFF/FDM technology based desktop 3D printers.

General Tips & Tricks for printing with PLA filaments.

The printing temperature guideline for printing with our EasyFil™ PLA filament is approximately 210-220°C. As each desktop 3D printer has its own unique characteristics, you might need to tweak around with your temperature settings a bit to get the best results. To obtain optimal results for your prints you need to take into account variables like your 3D printer’s nozzle diameter, your printing speed settings, and layer height.

Low Warping

PLA has much less tendency to warp compared to ABS. Therefore it can be printed both with and without a heated print bed. However, if your desktop 3D printer does have a heated print bed it is recommended to set your print bed temperature to approximately 35° to 60° C.

Good first layer adhesion is of the utmost importance in obtaining the best results for your prints. Firstly make sure that your print bed is accurately levelled and clean. Next, there are several tricks to get the first layer of your PLA print to stick better to the print bed of your 3D printer.

Blue Masking Tape. PLA prints usually stick really well to blue masking tape. When preparing the print bed it is better to have tiny gaps between your strokes of masking tape, rather than having overlaps. Overlaps of smaller pieces of tape may cause difficulties later on during the print process. We have tested a wide variety of masking tapes and found that the best results can be obtained with Eurocel Blue Masking Tape.

Coat your print bed with hairspray. Like ABS, PLA has a tendency to stick really well to extra strong hairsprays. Blue masking tape is unlikely to leave a residue on your print bed. A hairspray coating, however, will leave a residue on your print bed.

*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There is a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends and printer offset that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.
