Pro PLA APLA+ 3D printer filament Canada

3DFuel 3D Printer Filaments Canada has always striven to be in the forefront of 3D printing materials in order to bring our customers the latest and most innovative 3D printer consumables from around the world. As such, we are proud to announce that we have officially teamed up with 3DomFuel, the North American and European manufacturer of 3D-Fuel filaments, to bring you this Advanced PLA+ filament (APLA+)!

Advanced PLA+ (APLA+) has higher impact strength than ABS and PLA with a heat resistance rivaling that of ABS! New Advanced PLA+ will help your 3D printed projects look amazing and perform amazing.

Anneal your design after 3D printing for even better heat & impact resistance. (see bottom of page for annealing instructions)

Our High Impact Engineering APLA+ Formulation Offers Heat and Impact Resistance Rivaling ABS! Processes and Prints with the Ease of PLA!

This filament will give you the opportunity to expand into industrial prototyping with a unique, cost effective product with superior overall quality, printability, and part performance.

APLA+ was developed to meet the growing demand by industrial companies for a material that combines the properties of ABS and the printability of PLA. Parts produced with APLA+ exceed ABS 3D parts in impact strength and, with post-print annealing, rival ABS heat resistance!

APLA+ was designed specifically for the impact strength required in industrial applications.

The new APLA+ boasts 4.3 times impact strength levels of PLA. Even before post-processing, APLA+ exhibits significantly higher impact strength than ABS. A post-print annealing process will crystallize the materials and provide additional heat and impact properties.

Natureworks Ingeo 3D870 PLA 3d Printer Filament Canada

APLA+ is NatureWorks’ Ingeo™ certified, meaning the filament has passed a defined set of tests to assure the quality of the product.

  • Printing Information

    It is essential to ensure filaments are dry prior to printing. Our filament will run best at an extrusion temperature range of 185-230C. It is recommended to use high water content hair spray (as opposed to high ethyl alcohol content) or painter’s tape on the build plate to ensure the first layer of the print sticks to the plate. PEI (with a heated bed), BuildTak, and direct printing on acrylic can also produce good results.

    For more stability and a higher quality print:

    • Reduce the speed of the extruder to 30-60mm/second if possible.
    • Increase infill to at least 30%
    • Reduce layer height for higher quality prints, 0.10mm is a good benchmark.
    • For prints with curvatures, it is recommended to turn on rafts and supports in your settings.
    • Print in an area with good airflow and/or and active cooling fan that directs airflow directly on the print.
    • Clean the base plate after each day of printing.
    • Clean the nozzle after every use for best performance.
  • Recommended Bed Temperature:
  • 0-60C*

    Recommended Print Speed:
    40 – 100 mm/s

  • Annealing: 80°C – 130°C
  • Annealing Printed Parts:

    Ingeo 3D870 (APLA+) is formulated to crystallize when annealed post-printing.

    Crystallization is a simple and effective route to improve the thermal performance and further enhance the impact properties of Ingeo 3D870.

    The recommended anneal temperature is in the range of 110°C-120°C.

    Annealing can be carried out in an oven or some other medium of heat-transfer, such as a hotwater bath. Make sure to follow safety procedures that are appropriate for working around elevated temperatures.

    Below is a general guideline to anneal parts printed with Ingeo 3D870:

    1. Pre-heat oven to an anneal temperature range of (110°C-120°C). 2. Measure temperature at various locations in the oven to ensure absence of hot/cold spots. Uneven heating can lead to unexpected warpage and sub-optimal performance of the part (a convection type oven/toasted oven is ideal)

    3. Place printed part in oven and start timer. Typical time to anneal parts with wall-thickness of 0.125 in (~3.18 mm) is around 20 minutes, but this time is dependent on wall thickness.

    4. For large dimension parts, it is common to use support fixtures (e.g.-aluminum jigs) during the annealing process

    5. Once removed from the oven, let the part cool in ambient conditions. Minimize handling, as inside of the part will likely remain at elevated temperatures longer than the outside.

    6. If using a water-bath to anneal, the part may have to be at temperature for a slightly longer time to crystallize (since the water-bath cannot be at 110°C-120°C).

    7. Measure dimensions of the part prior to annealing and again after, to determine shrink.
