This is the material for the Method 3D printer from Makerbot Industries, it has been designed and tested to work perfectly with Makerbot's industrial grade printer. Shipped in a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag, quality is preserved right up until opening.
The Smart Spool contains all the information that the printer needs, including material type, color, and amount remaining via an RFID chip. This is communicated directly to MakerBot Print, while a built-in desiccant absorbs any moisture exposure during the material loading process, ensuring your material stays fresher longer.
Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources. Safe for the office, this material is non-toxic and easy-to-print with high reliability and dimensional accuracy. MakerBot precision PLA Material is optimized with the Makerbot Method printer in mind. Ideal for the early stages of concept modelling and form studies, PLA printed objects will generally have a glossier look and feel.
PLA Precision Model Material: Extensively-tested for the highest reliability and measurably accurate parts.
Smart Spool™ provides valuable information including material type, color, and amount remaining via an RFID chip directly to MakerBot Print, while a desiccant in the spool maintains a low moisture level inside the drawer bay.
