  • ‘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.

Description

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.

*NOTE: Some printers do prefer lower temperatures for rigid.ink PLA Plus+ 200-210°C, bed temp 40°C. If your test print is looking a little too runny and the layers aren't cooling enough try lowering your temperatures.

Why rigid.ink?

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. 

Works with pretty much all filament based 3D printers, our spool size is - 20cm dia, 7cm width, 5.6cm dia spool hole.

Please note a different pigment is being used for the black from February 2017 onwards.

We do not hold Food Safety Certificates. Some of the raw materials used to produce our filaments are food safe accordingly to European regulations, but our filament in it's final form is not officially approved. Neither is the 3D printing process and all the components of 3D printers.

Would recommend this filament

It was a very easy plastic to print with, and the quality it excellent. The prints I did using the PLA plus came out amazingly better quality than any pint my printer ever produced.

Prints well, tougher but less hard than standard PLA

This is an easy to print plastic which is good for mechanical parts. It doesn't shatter like a standard PLA, it will deform though.

It's a lot easier to print than ABS, although you do need a heated bed and higher temps than standard PLA, I used 230 on the nozzle with 100% fan after the first layer. Had to use a skirt and a bit of 3DLAC spray on large parts to prevent curling, used 60 initial bed temp for the first layer, 40 for the rest. This was for printing a large mechanical part the full bed size though.

It also worked well for a multi-material print (by filament swap at layer) changing from the Rigid.ink flexible PLA (BioFlex), to the PLA Plus. The adhesion between the materials is great, and allows printing a rubbery base on to the solid part.

Hi Silas,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review.
Your print looks very nice and I'm glad you like the filament!

Also, thank you for providing more information about your print, it helps to other customers as well :)

All the best
