Prints just like regular PLA, with no abrasive fillers to excessively wear out your nozzle and no inordinately sized particles that will lead to jams.
If you need improved heat resistance compared to normal PLA, this Protopasta HTPLA can be heat treated through baking – once the print goes from translucent pink to an opaque pink with reduced gloss, then the heat treating is complete. The manufacturer says 225°F with convection has produced good results. Some shrinking may occur.
When doing this, printed parts will get “floppy” before firming up. Provide supports and bake on a non-radiating surface, like glass or ceramic.
