A special collaboration between Proto-Pasta and thingiverse contributor Garrett, this rich HTPLA (Heat Treatable Polylactic Acid) is a deep red with a warm, translucent tone and a subtle fleck for added texture.
Because this filament was created during such a rare coming together of different 3D printing minds, only a very limited run was produced, so snatch it up while you can. Truly a chaotic color, once it's gone, it's just a crazy memory.
Video and model-maker Garret visited the Proto-Pasta headquarters in Portland, Oregon, and they worked together to bring Garret's vision to life in the form of Chaos Red. This HTPLA is imbued with the love and passion of the maker community, and it looks like nothing you've used to print before.
HTPLA combats the regular shortfalls of PLA but utilizing heat treating after printing. After a part is completed, it can be heated back to the glass transistion point and very slowly cooled back to room temperature. This improves inter-layer adhesion and makes the part more heat resistant. This heat treading process works with any PLA, but HTPLA is specifically manufactured to recieve this treatment. Additionally, this fiber based HTPLA has improved dimensional stability throughout the annealing process due to the plant fibers built into the filament.
Many composite materials require a hardened nozzle, but not this filament! This material prints perfectly with a standard brass nozzle without any additional wear compared to standard filaments. This material is perfect for those who want to expand their filament library without having to make hardware changes on their printer, as it offers expanded possibilities without any drawbacks or complications.
