PLA Plus+ 1.75mm 3D Printer Filament
- ‘Enhanced’ PLAs have a bad reputation, some are no better than PLA, some perform worse in some conditions. We’ve taken a different approach: our ‘regular’ PLA is regarded as the strongest pure PLA in the industry, it’s hard to improve on the best. But sometimes you need something a little more durable. Enter our specially formulated PLA Plus. Prints like PLA, but with better durability.
- Note: While not stronger or harder than our regular PLA, our PLA Plus is designed for applications where you need that enhanced durability, or even a little flex over standard PLA. This is a very tough PLA, it will never snap or shatter* – it will just eventually slowly deform. *Not tested in -0°C conditions.
- Like a pearlescent sheen to your prints? Our PLA Plus colours have a beautiful sheen to them, which catches the light unlike any other filament. Check out the photos in the reviews below to see what we mean.
- As with all rigid.ink filaments, our pure resin formula contains no nasty contaminants that lurk to block your nozzle at any moment. Your rigid.ink is also extruded to industry leading tight tolerances: this ensures consistent layers, giving uniform strength through your print and nicely finished layer lines. We guarantee 100% reliable printing. Every. Single. Time.
- Any issues with your order or printing setup? We’ve got you covered. Our friendly, efficient and knowledgeable technical support team are on hand to get you back on track.
What is PLA Plus?
PLA Plus is an enhanced version of our PLA that's less brittle and more durable.
Please note: If you're simply looking for the strongest PLA on the market, you may be better suited to our 'regular' PLA here (though there's nothing 'regular' about our PLA).
PLA Plus is for applications where good vibration absorption and a lower fracture rate is needed.
We became so tired of the hordes of terrible quality PLA 3D printer filaments flooding the market, we decided to release our own. You need a PLA filament you can rely on, something that won't ever jam your head and produce flawless prints, every time.
Accurately represented colours, near-perfect tolerances and excellent raw material quality was our aim. It wasn't easy, but we're confident we've produced a 3D printer filament to be proud of. In fact, we'd be surprised if you found better.
Especially for this price.
Using the most technologically advanced equipment and the finest raw materials, we produce a consistent filament with a tolerance of just 0.03mm either side of the 1.75mm diameter we promise. We know it's good, we test it thoroughly with lasers.
Don't feel like committing to a whole KG roll?
No worries, we even sell lengths of our PLA filament in multiples of just 10 meters, allowing you to try out a range of colours at a fraction of the price. The colours you see in the images are the exact colour you'll receive. We may not have the biggest selection of colours (more coming soon!) but they won't disappoint.
Sure the quality is amazing, but what about the service?
It's fashionable to say you give great service, but ours really is second to non. Seriously, not happy with your purchase in any way? Let us know, we'll bend over backwards to help you out. So why wait, order from just 10 meters or 1KG of rigid.ink today and start printing something amazing.
We even do free UK mainland delivery on orders over 65.00 GBP.

Makkelijk te verwerken en een prima stevig eindresultaat.
Easy to print with a very fine finish. I don't really need the extra toughness at the moment but when I do I will certainly use this.
Got a 10 metre sample to try to print parts for a D Bot I am going to make. I have HICTOP printer modded with a E3D light Bowden set up and glass on the heated bed. I used the minimum recommended temperatures and 3Dlac on the bed. At .25 layer height the prints are spot on. Surface finish and flat surfaces smooth and accurate. No stringing or other defects and no failures on the 4 parts I printed.
I am really impressed so have ordered a 1kg spool to continue with the rest of the parts.
I have a spool of the standard PLA but this will probably stay in its sealed pack until I get the D Bot bits printed. Will be happy to review that when I get it on the printer.
I would recommend Rigid ink PLA Plus if you need an alternative to ABS and like me don't have the correct conditions (ventilation etc.) to print ABS.
For things that you won't be looking at and you need to be strong it's great, prints well with minimum stringing but the finish is very rough, this could be me being unable to dial it in correctly as I'm new to 3d printing but that's my newbies first impressions.
Brilliant guys, loving the PLA Plus just started printing Lithophanes with it and the results are excellent.
Just some feedback from the ASA on my last order. I'm making lamp shades for the garden and they are looking fine.
(pictures attached) Printed on Cr-10 and a Hacked 3D Systems CubePro.
Everything ive had from you Guys & Gals has been epic.
