The most commonly used 3D printing filament today, PLA has a slightly sweet smell when printing. PLA prints at a lower temperature than many other plastics, and produces very fine detail when used with a cooling fan. PLA readily absorbs moisture from the air which can cause unsightly print surfaces when the moisture turns to steam inside the heated nozzle. PLA filament should be kept in an airtight package with a desiccant pack whenever it is not being used for printing.

PLA bonds very firmly to acrylic. Printing directly on an acrylic surface is not recommended.

Print Cooling fan?

Print cooling fans are highly recommended with PLA filament and usually result in a very noticeable improvement in the appearance of the print. Print cooling fans also greatly improve the ability to bridge gaps and print overhanging areas without support when using PLA filaments.
