Add:North X-PLA

About The Materials 

Materials Documentations

X-PLA is a unique PLA-mix developed by add:north.

It is 100% biodegradable and has a high impact resistance, zero brittleness and an unbeatable finish. The X-PLA was first developed to meet the high requirements from architects, who often print thin walls but at the same time want a resistive and even surface.

Finished prints of X-PLA have a solid and robust feeling which is perfect for technical applications but also prototypes and figures. X-PLA can be printed at low temperatures (from 180 °C) and will then get a nice matte finish that is not possible using regular PLA.

[Print Guide]


180-220 degrees in the nozzle and up to 70 degrees on the build plate. There are three primary factors influenced by the temperature: 

* Surface. You can achieve more matteness with lower nozzle temp, and vice versa. 

* Layer adhesion. Layer adhesion increases with increased temperature. It is usually good for bed adhesion to also print the first layer a bit warmer than the rest of the model, on the nozzle as well as the print bed.

* Flow. With increased temperature, the flow increases (the viscosity decreases). This may have to be compensated with a somewhat increased retraction distance and retraction speed. Conversely, low-temp prints needs a bit less retraction. Always try to use as little retraction (distance and speed) as possible, so it just prevents the stringing you want to get rid of. This is especially important if you print with all-metal hotends. 

We recommend you to print a temptower when first using a new material, to find the sweetspot of your printer.
