What can you print PLA on?

Use a heated print bed – While PLA/PLA+ can be printed on an unheated bed, for best results we recommend and a bed temp of between 50°C – 60°C. If poor adhesion is an issue, print the first two layers ONLY with the bed at 65°C (and 60°C for every subsequent layer).

What can you use PLA filament for?

Overview. Polylactic Acid, commonly known as PLA, is one of the most popular materials used in desktop 3D printing. It is the default filament of choice for most extrusion-based 3D printers because it can be printed at a low temperature and does not require a heated bed.

Why does my 3D print not stick to the bed?

If your 3D print is not sticking to the bed, check the distance between the bedplate and the nozzle. If the nozzle is too close to the bed, then the filament will not be able to come out, or the extruder could damage or drag the previously printed layer.

What is the best surface to 3D print on?

And because plastic bonds strongly to other plastics, polypropylene is a great printing surface option for most 3D printable materials, such as PLA, ABS, PETG, and even polypropylene (because you can also 3D print this material).

Why are my 3D prints lifting?

Warping occurs due to material shrinkage while 3D printing, which causes the corners of the print to lift and detach from the build plate. When plastics are printed, they firstly expand slightly but contract as they cool down. If material contracts too much, this causes the print to bend up from the build plate.
