colorFabb’s PLA Economy: Large volume, High quality, Low price

In November we launched a new product line: PLA Economy. This new grade of PLA, with an added impact modifier, has been a hit from the moment of release. We developed this new PLA, separate from our lauded PLA/PHA, as a filament for large volume users.

Because it’s made with the same processing technology used for other premium colorFabb products, this PLA Economy filament is just as reliable. PLA Economy is available on 2.2kg spools only, delivering a whopping 740 meters of 1.75mm filament and 270 meters of 2.85mm filament.

So far, we have released PLA Economy in four colors: White (RAL 9010), Black (RAL 9005, Red (RAL 3020) and Silver (RAL 9023). More colors will be made available in 2017.

We advice the following settings:

Adviced 3d printing temperature

Adviced 3d print speed
40 – 100 mm/s

Advised Heated bed (if you have one, not strictly necessary)

Cooling fan
100% fan cooling for best aesthetics, this gives best performance on overhangs and small details. For best mechanical performance try printing with the least amount of cooling needed, for optimal layer adhesion.


Design spool holder:

At a little over €35 (excl. VAT) for 2.2kg pricing for this filament is extremely attractive. That comes basically down to a little less than € 16 per kg for a high quality filament! But wait, there is more….

You can also opt for the PLA Economy Value Pack: order four spools as a value pack and receive an immediate 10% discount!

PLA Economy is very well suited for the maker who needs quality at an affordable price. It is a perfect filament for large volume and small series production, made with the guaranteed colorFabb quality that we are known for.

Happy printing!

  1. Hi, does this spool fit in the BCN3D Sigma? I’ve just received mine yesterday but the blue bay inside the machine doesn’t look that big.

    • Nope, it does not fit.
      But check out our spool holder solution for the 2,2kg spools. Just place these in front of the printer and your good to go.

  2. Hi, what about colorfabb contest in this year?

    • No plans at the moment, but maybe later in the year.
