Precise PLA is our special version of the popular prototyping plastic polylactic acid, or PLA for short. We call it “Precise PLA” because it’s PLA in the usual “Markforged Quality”. Our engineers have paid great attention to detail to ensure that printing is very reliable and the user experience is simplified. The result is you get parts that look and work great every time. Eight colors are offered at launch: yellow, red, orange, green, blue, grey, black and white.
Our customers are successful in printing high-strength tools, jigs, and ready-to-use components, but sometimes the high-strength materials are not economical for first viewing samples, prototypes, fit testing, or concept models. We want to give our users the ability to create prototypes without sacrificing “Markforged quality”, i.e. the process is reliable and the parts come out of the machine nicely.
