MakerBot PLA Small Spool True Blue filament is an excellent and consistent filament specifically designed for printing with MakerBot 3D printers.


Every MakerBot PLA filament colour has been comprehensively tested at both 100 and 200 micron layer resolutions on a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D printer to ensure the best print finish possible and verify that the filament will perform every feature that MakerBot software offers, reliably slicing and printing every time. All MakerBot filaments are manufactured to tight tolerances to ensure uniform diameter from the beginning of a spool to the end.


MakerBot PLA Small Spool True Blue is 1.75mm in diameter, bio-degradable and has a gloss finish. Its qualities make it an excellent all-round material for 3D printing.


Available in a wide range of colours and spool sizes. Check out Features to view spool size compatibility.
