Create durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures.
- Similar tensile, impact, and flexural strength to ABS
- Greater durability than PLA, allowing it to flex more than PLA before it breaks
- Suitable for printing jigs and fixtures with threaded and snap fits that can withstand repeated use
- Warps less than ABS during printing, which makes for more reliable print results
Create durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures with this bundle. It includes 3 spools of Tough PLA Filament and the Tough PLA Smart Extruder+. Engineers and designers can save time and money with a filament that’s as tough as ABS and as reliable to print as PLA.
This filament is similar to ABS in its tensile, impact, and flexural strength. It warps less than ABS and offers greater durability than PLA, meaning it can flex more than PLA before it breaks. It’s optimized for use with the easily swappable MakerBot® Tough PLA Smart Extruder+.
Temperatures includes glass temperature: 60 to 65 °C (140 to 149 °F), melting temperature: 150 to 160 °C (302 to 320 °F), nozzle temperature: 215 °C (419 °F).
Specifications includes filament diameter: 1.75 mm, spool diameter: 25.0 cm (9.84"), spool width: 4 cm (1.57"), spool hub hole: 5.08 cm (2"), shipping weight: 3.54 kg (7.81 lbs.), net weight: 3.12 kg (6.87 lbs.) for bundle.
Caution: Store MakerBot® Tough PLA Filament in a cool, dry place as it can absorb moisture from air and long-term exposure to humidity can compromise filament quality and performance.
