Back-to-basics White PLA

4043D PLA Filament

$3.50 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.

I really like Protopasta filament. It's pretty much the only filament I buy. The colors are great and I never have any trouble printing.

Home renovation

Of all the filament to be out of when I decided to print my switch and outlet covers. But Proto-Pasta comes through again with the basic white pla. Thanks for the help.

The only filament I use

When it comes to black, I always come Back to the Basics with Proto Pasta B2B PLA. I can have it matt when printing fast, or shiny when printing slower, it really is the only black you’ll ever need! Thanks for making such a wonderful product.
