A very nice looking PLA, simple to print

Color: Yellow

Voltivoâ€TMs ExcelFil is a high grade, high-density 3D printing filament available in both PLA, ABS for your everyday 3D printing jobs. ExcelFilâ"¢ is perfectly suited for and tested with a wide range of 3D printers.

ExcelFilâ"¢ PLA and ABS filaments allow for easy extrusion due to their tight laser-controlled tolerances, smooth flow characteristics over a large temperature range, rapid cooling, and a high tensile strength.

ExcelFilâ"¢ comes in a wide range of colors and in two diameters that fit many brands of printers. Voltivo ships ExcelFilâ"¢ on sturdy recyclable spools, vacuum sealed with a desiccant bag to ensure it arrives moisture-free.
