POLYMAKER PolyTerra PLA Matte 3D Printer Filament 1.75mm 1KG (Savannah Yellow)

PolyTerra™ PLA is a sustainable and unique matte PLA filament sourced naturally and for every spool produced a tree is planted.

  • Eco-friendly Polymaker PLA formula
  • Smooth matte surface finish.
  • Optimized for easier support removal.
  • Excellent printer compatibility.
  • Easier to sand and less brittle / more ductile compared to regular PLA.
  • Jam-free™ technology improves compatibility with all-metal hotends.
  • Sustainable cardboard spool & packaging + ONETREEPLANTED

PolyTerra️ PLA is a bioplastic based 3D printing filament designed from the ground up to create a new generation of PLA filaments, providing ease of use, printing quality, speed and reliability. It is a sustainable product sourced naturally and for every spool produced a tree is planted to give back to the earth.

 

Features

  • Matte Surface & Fun Colours - Print parts with a beautiful matte surface finish and unleash your imagination with PolyTerra™ PLA's fun and vibrant colour range. PolyTerra™ PLA renders models with an excellent matte surface quality and features good overhang and bridging capability.
  • Optimized for Support - PolyTerra™ PLA has been engineered with excellent support removal properties, enabling users to more easily break away support or rafts from the surface of their prints.
  • Easy Sanding - PolyTerra™ PLA is softer and easier to sand in comparison to regular PLA filaments and can be easily painted.
  • Bioplastic PLA Formula - PolyTerra™ PLA is a newly developed material from Polymaker called FBC (Fully Bio Compound). It is a compound of high quality Ingeo PLA and compounded with naturally occurring elements. PLA is biodegradable under industrial composting conditions however the degradation rate is very slow in ambient temperatures.  Polymakers FBC formula ​contains less PLA plastic to degrade making PolyTerra™ PLA a more environmental friendly material.
  • Eco-sustainable Packaging & Carbon Offset – Polymaker are committed to helping combat plastic waste, as such PolyTerra™ PLA comes on a fully recycled cardboard spool with recycled labels and box. Furthermore, Polymaker will plant one tree in Australia through the ONETREEPLANTED association for every locally sold spool of PolyTerra™ PLA. 
  • Improved Ductility - PolyTerra™ PLA delivers improved ductility which is less brittle (Charpy Impact) in X-Y axis than standard PLA formulations.
  • Compatibility / Jam-Free™- PolyTerra™ PLA is compatible with a wide range of 3D printers and is manufactured with Polymakers  Jam-Free™ technology which leads to excellent printing quality with zero risk of nozzle jams caused by heat creep [1]. PolyTerra™ PLA works well on most printing surface with a thin layer of glue stick applied, no heated bed is required but can sometimes be used at 40 - 50°C for better results (maximum 60°C).
  • Uncompromised Quality - PolyTerra™ PLA filament is made with the highest quality ingredients including Ingeo® from Natureworks; a high quality PLA material produced from rapidly renewable plant resources in the US. Combining Polymakers innovative R&D technologies, compounding and extrusion systems with Natureworks Ingeo® resins produces a reliable 3D printing filament to print beautiful and accurate models.

 

Printing Settings

Nozzle Temperature 190°C - 230°C
Build Plate Temperature 25°C - 60°C*

*You may find lower bed temperatures (i.e 45°C) work better with PolyTerra™ PLA in comparison to higher temperatures.
Build Surface Material Compatible with most common build surfaces.
Build Surface Treatment Apply a thin layer of PVA or PVP glue stick.
Cooling Fan ON
Printing Speed 30 mm/s - 70 mm/s
Retraction The ideal retraction settings vary from printer to printer. If you find the retraction settings are causing gaps in your part, the following settings may help.
Direct Drive: Retraction distance of 0.5 - 1mm with retraction speed of 20mm/s
Bowden: Retraction distance of 2 - 3mm with retraction speed of 20 - 40mm/s

Compatibility

PolyTerra™ PLA has been engineered with compatibility in mind to print excellently on a wide range of 3D printers. The Jam-Free™ technology implemented into PolyTerra™ PLA can improve compatibility with all metal hot end designs that suffer from heat creep.

Of course with thousands of unique 3d printer models on the market, we can't guarantee each filament type will work with every 3D printer.
