Ocean Blue Standard PLA is great for a basic material for 3D printing prototypes.
Standard PLA printed parts always look great. And if blue is your color, you'll love our Ocean Blue Filament!
Standard PLA is a basic, entry-level PLA filament. It's available in a broad color selection and uses only virgin NatureWorks Ingeo 4043d PLA resin. No fillers or stretchers means a more predictable 3D printing experience. Because we don't use fillers, the ideal print temp might be 5-10C higher than your current PLA settings.
Our Standard PLA, or Polylactic Acid, is among the most popular 3D printing materials in the world because it is easy to print and strong. Standard PLA is a hard plastic that produces a barely noticeable, but quite pleasant, sugary smell when extruding.

All 3D-Fuel 3D printer filament is manufactured in our own production facility located in Fargo, North Dakota. We have complete control over the manufacturing process and are able to ensure consistent quality for every spool. Learn more about 3D-Fuel filament quality.
Variable diameter can cause big problems in your 3D printer. We use a multi-axis laser measurement system to control our filament diameter and ovality in real time during production. Every spool has the diameter and ovality measurements listed right on the box.
A full 1kg (2.2lbs) of Standard PLA plastic filament arrives on a durable plastic reel and is vacuum sealed with a desiccant packet to keep out any moisture.
The 3D-Fuel test lab features multiple brands of 3D printers including Raise3D, MakerBot, LulzBot, FlashForge, and more. We use what we manufacture to ensure that our filament provides the absolute best quality possible.
