//Biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources.
Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources. Safe for the office, this material is non-toxic and easy-to-print with high reliability and dimensional accuracy. MakerBot precision PLA Material is optimized with the slicing algorithm in our software to give you the best results and highest quality. Ideal for the early stages of concept modelling and form studies, PLA printed objects will generally have a glossier look and feel. Available in Cool Gray, True White, True Orange, True Red, Natural and True Black.

//Engineered for durable and strong 3D printed prototypes and fixtures. Print with confidence. Print Tough.
With up to 2X the impact-strength of ABS and similar tensile and flexural strength properties, Tough gives you durability for a wide variety of industrial applications that hold up under all types of stress. Tough is designed to overcome common flaws in ABS 3D printing – including warping and curling – so you can print your parts reliably without excessive adjustments or tweaking. Throw your printed part into the CNC or drill press; tap some threads and bolt on a steel bracket, or sand the surface and paint for a finished presentation pieces. Whatever your design challenge, Tough makes it easy to test and present your parts in real-world applications.
Available in four colors – slate grey, safety orange, stone white and onyx black – for creators who need to color code their parts or want more creative.

//Superior Part Durability and Chemical Resistance
PETG is the material of choice for printing high-performance parts that demand excellent durability along with temperature, moisture, and chemical resistance. Engineers and designers use PETG to produce durable prints with speed and agility that can withstand industrial applications including functional prototypes, jigs and fixtures, and end-use parts.
- Excellent mechanical properties, including high durability and toughness: 8.1 kJ/m² Impact Strength (ISO 179)
- Higher heat resistance than both PLA and Tough: 70C Heat Deflection Temperature (ASTM 648)
- Chemical resistance to acidic and alkali compounds
- Moisture Resistant: 1104 ppm moisture absorption (ISO 62)
- Prints with water-soluble PVA supports
