What is LW-PLA?
LW-PLA, short for "Lightweight PLA," is an invention by colorFabb designed for 3D printing applications where reducing the weight of the final printed objects is crucial. This filament is particularly well-suited for printing items like RC (Radio-Controlled) planes, cosplay props, and other lightweight components. What sets LW-PLA apart is its active foaming technology, which allows it to achieve a lower density and reduced weight in 3D prints while still maintaining adequate strength. This means that when you use LW-PLA, the resulting parts are incredibly lightweight, making it an ideal choice for applications where weight is a critical factor. LW-PLA offers the advantage of being easy to work with after printing. It can be cut, trimmed, and sanded with ease, allowing for post-processing and fine-tuning as needed.
