Despite not being able to simulate the appearance of the original material, the irregular pattern created by the specks of marble in the filament does a great job of giving 3D prints some character. Marble PLA+ is great for display pieces. If you want a 3D printed reproduction of a famous sculpture in your living room, then you should totally print it with Marble PLA+. The dark specks actually do a great job of hiding layer lines, but you can readily sand and polish your Marble PLA+ print to take its visual appeal to the next level.
How to print with Marble PLA+
There aren’t many Marble PLA+ filaments in the market today, but there may still be some variation in the recommended printer settings from one product to another. When in doubt, it’s best to follow to recommendations of your filament’s manufacturer.
Marble PLA+ prints at a forgiving extruder temperature range of 190 to 210 °C. PLA+ is a variation of PLA that has added material in order to make the filament less brittle, have a smoother surface finish, and less likely to absorb moisture. Typically, TPU is added into the filament in order to achieve this property. PLA+ will have the feel and functionality of ABS without the smell. If you didn’t know better, you would think it was ABS. We suggest printing with PLA+ at 190 to 210 degrees Celsius and with a bed temperature of 45 degrees Celsius. PLA+ responds very well to blue painter’s tape and a glue stick to hold properly and not peel up when printing. PLA+ Advantages: Blended with special biodegradable bio-polyesters. High rigidity.
