Back-to-basics Natural PLA

4043D PLA Filament

$24.99 USD
PLA11710-NAT

No sparkles or fancy finishes here, just natural, unmodified Natureworks Ingeo 4043D PLA resin extruded into filament and 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! Proto-pasta 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.

Better than basic results

I run a product design lab, and we use a large volume of material for cosmetic and form models. This filament is among the best I've used, and my students are very happy with it. Lighting projects in natural PLA using vase mode come out beautifully.

Great all purpose filament at a great price

I've been printing with this filament for a few days now on a Prusa MK3S. All I had to do was bump the temperature in the default PLA profile from 215 C to 220 C and it's printing beautifully. I love the cardboard spool. Much less wasteful than plastic.

Very good every day print material

I wanted to try out proto-pasta, as I've heard really good things about their products. The main thing that held me back most of the time was price. Going with the back to basics natural PLA was a great starting point for me. Would highly suggest this filament to anyone looking for a high-quality, but affordable filament.

Great, as always

Great filament at a really good price. I use it most of the time for prints that will bbe painted later. It's a fantastic base with no worries about color coming through.
