Shiny, Happy 3D Printing with Elefilament
Need a filament that won’t let you down? Want a superb finish on your models? Don’t want to pay a fortune? Elefilament could be just what you are looking for - it is a premium brand filament at a reasonable price and gives a consistent, slightly shiny finish.
Elefilament PLA comes in 1.75mm and 2.85mm, supplied in a range of popular colours.
**Need a special colour? Get in touch and we can arrange for a colour to be made just for you (minimum order quantity and set up charge may apply).
**Try our Pot Luck Colours If you colour is not important to you then you could save money with our "pot luck" Elefilament PLA 2.85mm filament. These are spools produced to the same high standard and specification as any other reel BUT they are end of runs or when something went awry with the colour. Some reels are an odd colour, some are inconsistent (for example, one colour running into another colour) and some are the results of our experimentation with colour. At a greatly reduced price, why not give them a try?

What is PLA
PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a good material to start 3D printing with because it is easily handled by 3D printers. It cools quickly, thus decreasing the likelihood of the object becoming warped. It operates at temperatures between 190 and 220 °C. Colours may vary slightly from the colours shown in the pictures.
Our PLA is made by NatureWorks, an American company known for its innovation and quality. We never use recycled materials, since they can be harder to print with.
How we make our filament:
- Quality raw material made by NatureWorks, the world’s leading manufacturer of PLA
- Thoroughly dried using a desiccant air dryer to prevent air bubbles
- Low tolerance (0.05mm) to make it easy to print with
What’s more, our production staff care and take pride in their work and want to make you the best filament they can!
- Extruder temperature: 190 and 220°C
- Platform temperature: 50° - 60°C
Packaging & Storage
Each reel of PLA 1.75mm Elefilament is enclosed in a bag with silica gel to absorb moisture and normally sent to you in a thick plastic bag. Orders for larger quantities are sent in a box. As moisture can affect the quality of the filament, we recommend you store your reel in the bag with the gel when not in use.
