Back-to-basics White PLA

4043D PLA Filament

$29.99 USD

No sparkles or fancy finishes here, just premium Natureworks Ingeo 4043D PLA with high quality white pigment. Master-batched and extruded in house to be your go-to basic PLA filament for a premium experience. Spooled onto cardboard spools to minimize environmental impact and maximize value. Many filaments are wound onto wasteful plastic spools because it's cheap and easy, but cardboard is sturdy enough for single use, saves shipping weight, and is easily recycled when done! Protopasta filament is first dried, then extruded without moisture using air cooling for exceptional quality. Minimal waste, no water use, and no additives because less is more when meeting basic needs.

Love the cardboard spool!

The filament worked great. I had zero issues through the entire spool, good quality prints. And it comes on a cardboard spool which makes me very happy. The spool held up perfectly, no issues with the spool and I can recycle it. I wish more places did this.
