NEW PRODUCTS – PLA Filament for 3D Printers – 2.85mm Diameter – 1.0Kg – MeltInkBlack & Clear


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.

If you’re looking for more information on the different types of 3D printing material, here’s a great tutorial on our Learn System!
