PLA+ is a type of 3D printer filament that is based on standard PLA, but with extra additives to enhance a wide range of qualities. It addresses many of the common problems that PLA presents, such as the brittle nature, low elongation breaking point, as well as layer adhesion. The only area in which regular PLA beats PLA+ is in tensile strength, although it is a slight difference, and is far outweighed by the plethora of benefits.
eSUN PLA+ is considered by many as the new standard for PLA printing, and despite being slightly more expensive than typical PLA, it offers far more value for money. It is not only easier to work with, but also produces better, smoother and less spider-webbed prints – while also being more flame resistant as well.
In terms of the value that PLA+ brings to printing, it offers a wide variety of benefits, the first of which you will notice is far greater layer adhesion. This is due to the higher flow temperature, which will also help to produce less spider-webbing in gaps and less stringing along surfaces. Additionally, PLA+ has a lower distortion temperature, which means it is allowed a longer time to settle before it actually cools. This can be particularly beneficial for 3D printers without enclosures, and helps to ensure that each of the layers are printed before the previous layer starts warping or distorting – further improving on layer adhesion.
While there are many other less predominant benefits, such being less brittle than PLA in filament form, the final key feature we will discuss is PLA+’s print finish quality. Owing to the enhanced layer adhesion, lower Melt Flow Index and higher stable print temperatures, PLA+ produces smoother, cleaner and more durable results. Whereas typical PLA is often brittle and can shatter quite easily, PLA+ has enough elongation and bending strength to resist falls, impacts and breaks from stretching. With these benefits in mind, it’s easy to see why so many Makers are choosing PLA+ as their favourite 3D printer filament.
eSUN has been in the industry of 3D printing and OEM services for top brands since as far back as 2002, and have garnered a strong reputation for providing consistently great quality materials, ranging from ABS to PETG as well as a few eSUN-specific materials like eNinja and eFlexy. We, as engineers who love 3D printing, know that we can rely on their strict quality control standards, and that each and every spool we acquire from them will be consistent, stable and reliable. This quality control is then fortified by our own quality checks, so that we can guarantee the value of the materials we supply to you. This way, you as the end-user never have to even think about the quality of printing materials you acquire from us.
eSUN 3D printer filament is designed and tested to work with all popular makes of FDM printers, and is available in a wide range of natural and obscure colours. eSUN have also designed more advanced types of plastic filament, including eCopper, eBronze and eSteel – which are fortified with metal powders to give prints a metallic, polishable finish – making the material choices for 3D Makers far more diverse than ever before.
The following are some of the primary reasons why we choose to procure and supply eSUN 3D printer filament:
While there are a wide range of suppliers throughout the world, each offering their own unique range filaments, we have chosen eSUN as our primary supplier simply because we believe they are the best. Not only have they been leaders and innovators, providing services for other companies to market and sell, but they are also constantly refining their existing products as well as producing brand new types of materials like the eFlexy, eBronze or the recent eMorph. This innovation, coupled with stringent quality control and a very affordable price range, makes eSUN our favourite supplier for all types of 3D printer filament.
