The worse pla?

Recommended Posts

I mean... I want to double extrude pla materials using other pla as support but I was wondering (since this it's just an idea and prolly a bad one) if anyone knows some kind of pla that might have zero warping (or close), bad adhesion (so it can be easyer to break it) and if posible that could be britle (to break it easyer). I don't want to go the hips/pva road since both have chemicals or they can get bad jams etc.

So... What's the worse pla you ever tryed? :)

I have a lot of complaints regarding E-sun filaments (never tried it tough), mainly because it's 3mm and not 2.85mm i think so maybe not a good choice.

And i'm not sure it would help to create supports in one pla and the model in another one, i don't see any advantage between that and printing the whole model with support in single extrusion... it will probably be less of a headache i think

    • "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.
