Gizmo Dorks PLA filament is made from the highest quality virgin material. PLA, Polylactic Acid, is created from processing a number of plant products. PLA can be composted at commercial facilities unlike ABS which is derived from fossil fuels. PLA is a more earth friendly plastic and more rigid than ABS, and in general the printed objects will have a more glossy look and feel compared to ABS. PLA can be sanded and machined. PLA has a lower melting temperature compared to ABS. As a material, PLA has much less warping versus ABS. Additionally, a heated bed is not required to print it. PLA generally enjoys sharper details and corners compared to ABS without the risk of cracking or warping. PLA can also be printed at higher throughput speeds.
Color changing filament is a special filament formulation that changes color when heat is applied. When the temperature of the plastic rises above approximately 88 F, the filament will change to another color. This also means that the plastic will change colors simply by touch such as when holding it in your hand. When the temperature drops down below 88 F, the filament changes back to it’s default color.
