Throughout history, people have considered white a symbol of purity, and for good reason. If you glance out the window after a newly-fallen snow–those precious hours before grime starts to desecrate the beauty–you will see why. Seeing a swan bobbing up after a dive into the water will also help you appreciate that eye-catching color.
And as soon as you print using this filament, seeing the flawless color of your masterpiece, you will be reminded of the magnificence of a pure white as well. You can use this premium HTPLA for any of your 3D printed planter projects, as it looks like an elegant ceramic. However, some common planters people make with it are those shaped like rabbits, eggs, flowers, arctic wolves, snowy owls, igloos, and seashells. Or, punch up the classy factor and add a string of stylish pearls to your creation.
Of course, let’s not forget one of the best uses for such a brilliant white HTPLA filament. That’s right: you can make a beautiful unicorn planter with this color. Don’t worry; we won’t tell anyone if you think it’s real!
This dazzling white filament prints just like regular PLA. There are no abrasive fillers to excessively wear out your nozzle. There are also no large particles that will lead to jams.
This Protopasta HTPLA can be heat treated through baking, which is great news if you need improved heat resistance compared to normal PLA. To heat treat, the manufacturer suggests a temperature of 225°F with convection for the best results.
It is important to realize that when you heat treat, printed parts will get “floppy” before firming up. To keep your planter looking its best, provide supports and bake on a non-radiating surface, like glass or ceramic.
Also, please note that some shrinking may occur if you decide to heat treat this product.
