Print 3D models with the MakerBot METHOD PLA and PVA Mixed Filament 9-Pack.
This pack comes with six filaments of PLA Precision, with two each of the following colors: black, white, and orange. It also comes with three filaments of PVA Precision Support. PLA, or polylactic acid, is a thermoplastic usually made from corn starch, sugarcane, or other biodegradable materials. In addition to being environmentally friendly, PLA also prints at low temperatures, which helps to reduce the possibility of warping. PLA precision is optimized with the slicing algorithm in the MakerBot software. PVA stands for polyvinyl alcohol and is specifically used as a support material. It is mainly used in conjunction with PLA, though it can also be used with other materials. PVA dissolves in water, which enables you to print complex objects. Since PVA is sensitive to moisture, you should store it in airtight containers.
This pack utilizes Smart Spool, which provides material type, color, and amount remaining information via an RFID chip to MakerBot Print. A desiccant in the spool also helps maintains a low moisture level inside the drawer bay.
