PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a biodegradable, sustainable and food safe polymer made from organic sources. It is the most common used filament in FFF 3D printers for its ease of use and awide range of applications, especially those not mechanically or thermally demanding. Definitely a good starting point to learn about the 3D Printing manufacturing process.
Plastics absorb moisture from the air. For long periods of time without printing, it is recommended to keep the PLA spools in a box or airtight container with desiccant to keep them dry. PLA emits low levels of gasses and particles when printed. We recommend printing it in a well-ventilated area to ensure a healthy environment.
