For your STEM curriculum.
Created from plant products (corn, potatoes, or sugar beets), PLA is considered more earth-friendly compared to the petroleum-based ABS plastics. It’s biodegradable and can be composted at most commercial facilities (will not biodegrade in home/backyard type compost piles). Stronger and more rigid than ABS plastic, and printed objects will look and feel glossier than ABS. Can be sanded and machined. Do not leave in high temperatures (such as hot cars) since objects may deform and droop. When PLA is properly cooled, it has higher maximum printing speeds, lower layer heights, and sharper printed corners. Filament is 1.75 mm thick and comes on a 2.2-lb. spool. May be used with all MakerBot 3D Printers. Made in U.S.A.
