Made in SA filament comes from a local manufacturer in Gauteng (either Filament Factory or SA Filaments) that provides a great quality PLA for the local and African market.
PLA (Polylactic acid) is biodegradable and carbon neutral. It is commonly used in the 3D printing industry thanks to its low thermal expansion coefficient. This means less warping and curling during printing. PLA is not as tough as other plastics, but delivers prints with very high dimensional accuracy. It is available in a range of colours and is easy to print with.
