PLA Materials 

Standard PLA 

  • Recommended Extruder Temperature: 200-220 °C
  • Recommended Bed Temperature: 50-70 °C
  • Print using a 0.3mm first layer to ensure the best possible adhesion!

Matte PLA

  • Recommended Extruder Temperature: 200-220 °C
  • Recommended Bed Temperature: 50-70 °C
  • Matte PLA tends to be softer than standard materials, we suggest loosening the tension on your extruder idler. This will allow the extruder to still       grip the filament without chewing it up before extrusion. Aggressive tension can lead to inconsistent layer lines.  

Silk PLA

  • Recommended Extruder Temperature: 200-220 °C
  • Recommended Bed Temperature: 50-70 °C
  • Silk PLA tends to be stringier than standard PLA. For this reason we recommend starting off with the lower temperature in our recommended range. You can also help eliminate stringing by increasing retraction distance and speed. 
  • Silk PLA does not like overhange and bridges. For parts that require these features we recommend turning down the temperature, slowing down the print, and keeping your part fan at 100% speed. 

PETG Materials 

Standard PETG 

  • Recommended Extruder Temperature: 220-250 °C
  • Recommended Bed Temperature: 70-90 °C
  • PETG can have a difficult time sticking to certain bed surfaces. We recommend our Fulament PEI Fula-Flex for this application. If you would like to print with another surface, the best way to eliminate warping and adhesion problems is increase the bed temperature. A hotter bed temperature with a 0.3mm first layer should help eliminate any bed adhesion issues.
