Having a 3D printer without filament is sort of like having a regular printer without paper or ink. And while a lot of printers come with some filament, there’s a good chance you’ve been printing up a storm and want something fresh. That’s why we carry 3D printing filament in a variety of colors!
These PLA Filaments with 2.85mm diameter, in Black and Clear 1.0Kg Spools are great beginner filaments, especially in classy Adafruit Black and this nice, translucent finish.
It’s always a good idea to check what diameter and filament type your printer can handle before purchasing! Please note this is 2.85mm filament, not compatible with 1.75mm-only machines!
PLA is bioplastic as it’s made from renewable natural resources. Since it’s biodegradable in commercial compost facilities, you can feel good and green about whatever you’re printing. There’s less warping when printing with PLA, and it works best when extruded between 205°C and 215°C.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
