MakerBot PLA

Rigid and glossy parts for quick and easy, office-friendly prototyping

PLA is a great material for early concept models because it is easy to use, office-friendly, and works great with breakaway supports which print faster and can be removed faster than dissolvable supports. PLA is a corn-based plastic and is considered biodegradable under industrial processes.
