PLA-X³ is our industrial high performance PLA which features extreme performance on speed¹, mechanical properties² and high heat environments³. PLA-X³ is perfect for printing speeds of > 120mm/s, allowing you to be more efficient in the same time. Users who use a lot of ABS now have a bio-based alternative material with all the advantages of ABS and none of the disadvantages like shrinking and delamination.

Due to the composition of PLA-X³ the material is already highly crystalline after printing, which increases the stiffness of the material at higher temperatures. When you combine this with annealing the PLA-X³ the material reaches an HDT of 95°C+. Compared to other high temp. resistant PLA types PLA-X³ has the USP of negligible small shrinkage after annealing (the dimensional accuracy is superb).

PLA-X³ has been specifically engineered for industrial applications where you want an easy to print filament with high mechanical properties. Objects that are printed with PLA-X³ will have a semi matte finish which not only looks great but helps concealing layer lines.

PLA-X3 features:

  • Prints like PLA, performs like ABS
  • Engineered for fast printing (> 120mm/s)
  • ABS matching mechanical properties
  • Great heat resistance at higher temperatures
  • HDT after annealing 95°C+
  • Semi matte finish after printing
  • Negligible shrinkage after annealing

Additional information

PLA-X³ can be printed without a heated bed. If you have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 50-60˚C.
PLA-X³ adheres to any print surface though we always recommend some adhesive or a print sticker.
PLA-X³ can be used on most common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.


Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.

* Viscosity is lower (higher MFI) at a higher printing temperature (240°C ±10°C), which increases the printing speed capabilities.
