Workday PLA (APLA) Heat Resistance Comparison
3D-Fuel Workday PLA filament is being produced from high heat grade PLA, developed specifically for the manufacturing of 3D printer filament.
High heat grade resin exhibits improved heat resistance and has faster crystalization rates. We use only genuine, <style="color: white;">Natureworks Ingeo resin for our Workday PLA filament.
When using 3D-Fuel filament made from this resin you can expect:
- Low odor
- Higher print detail/resolution
- Excellent first layer adhesion
- Improved adhesion between layers
- Reduced warping, curling, and failed prints
Printing InformationIt is essential to ensure filaments are dry prior to printing. Our filament will run best at an extrusion temperature of 190-230C. It is recommended to use high water content hair spray (as opposed to high ethyl alcohol content) or painter’s tape on the build plate to ensure the first layer of the print sticks to the plate. PEI (with a heated bed), BuildTak, and direct printing on acrylic can also produce good results. For more stability and a higher quality print:
|Workday PLA can be annealed to make it stronger and more temperature resistant. For more information on annealing, view our article here.
