Is Ultimaker PLA safe enough for printing children's toys

Recommended Posts

For children depends on the age. Also if he bites it I would only use fda approved filaments. And also yeah PLA snaps when it breaks. And tglass that it's fda approved snaps even worse when broken... So it really depends on the age of the children. It's a difficult matter. I did aome toys for mine in easywood coconut and varnish it with a 100% safe (also 100% ecological) for children wood varnish.

I liked the coconut for my children because even when it's pla+coconut wood, it doesn't 'snap'. It breaks more smoothly but also its more weak than just pla.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
