PLA 2 (PLA 2nd generation) filaments

As 3d printing technology continues to develop, the demand for higher quality PLA filament is becoming higher and higher by 3D printer owners and professionals. The FilaCube Research & Development Department is committed to develop unique proprietary formulas for the best 3D printing experience for users of all industries. After FilaCube PLA and PLA Plus (PLA+) filaments, we are proud to introduce our second generation PLA (polylactic acid or polylactide) filament (PLA 2). PLA 2 filaments have increased resilience (less brittle), a smoother surface finish, strong layer adhesion (bonding/binding), low shrinkage, and little-to-no warping.

What our client says about us

"We have had great success working with FilaCube filament. It takes a lot of filament to keep our 30+ machine print farm running. The FilaCube filament has proven to be consistent, reliable and hassle-free. Moreover the FilaCube team is very responsive and proactive. I highly recommend them." ~Dr. Larry Ciscon, President, Northworks Digital Factory,

Smooth finish and Great details


PLA 2 Prints can be Sanded!

Smiley face
Prints made from FilaCube PLA 2 filaments can tolerate sanding heat better than normal PLA. 3D printing professionals love PLA 2 filaments because great printed details from PLA 2 can save significant sanding and primer time!

The pictures demonstrate how a hero shield was printed with FilaCube PLA 2 filament and post-processed to a final cosplay. After the shied was 3D printed, it was sanded with 80 grit, 120 grit, and 180 grit sand paper, respectively. After the sanded shield was filler primed, it was wet sanded smooth up to 1200 grit starting with 220 grit sand paper. Next the shield was painted in a gloss black lacquer, masked and painted silver, and then sealed. Then nail polish was used to paint the back of the gem and the gem was attached to the shield.

PLA 2 Prints are Durable!

How to control diameter tolerance of 3D printer filament?

At FilaCube, we monitor the diameter change of all newly extruded 3D printer filament in real-time using a non-contact high-speed laser micrometer. In the video, 1,75 mm white PLA (polylactic acid) filament is being produced. There is an alarm associated with the monitor. If the diameter goes beyond (over or under) the preset tolerance 0.03 mm, the alarm will go off. So that workers on the product line will know the issue and discard the roll. This is how we do quality control on the diameter tolerance.
