< by ctrl design > PLA-X3 is perfect for printing speeds of > 120mm/s, allowing you to be more efficient in the same time. Users who use a lot of ABS now have a bio-based alternative material with all the advantages of ABS and none of the disadvantages like shrinking and delamination.
Due to the composition of < by ctrl design > PLA-X3 the material is already highly crystalline after printing, which increases the stiffness of the material at higher temperatures. When you combine this with annealing the < by ctrl design > PLA-X3 the material reaches an HDT of 95°C+. Compared to other high temp. Objects that are printed with < by ctrl design > PLA-X3 will have a semi matte finish which not only looks great but helps concealing layer lines.
Printing temp. 195-220 ̊C
< by ctrl design > PLA-X3 can be printed without a heated bed. If you have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 50-60˚C.
< by ctrl design > PLA-X3 adheres to any print service though we always recommend some adhesive or a print sticker.
< by ctrl design > PLA-X3 can be used on most common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
Cool and dry (15-25 ̊C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly
