Neutral but definitely not boring, our standard white is one of those essential filaments for every maker out there.

I buy this in bulk quantities regularly, it works extremely well on my fleet on Ultimaker 2+'s and I have never had any issues with it, very easy to work with and produces excellent quality parts. (Posted on 12/28/2016)
- Warp and doesn't stick
As Alexander said in his review this plastic is very demanding.
I have exactly the same experience :
"But getting good prints with this filament on a brand new UM2+ is a real challenge. Three out of four prints failed miserably. It warps, it shrinks, it strings and it doesn't stick to the build plate."
Maybe I'm doing something wrong but with Makerpoint white PLA I never had those issues before.

- Good, Easy, Hight-Quality & Affordable
This Material is definitely something for the ones who just want something to work on their printer.
The coloring looks very nice, and after printing it has a lovely, uniform looking coloration to it.
The surface feels smooth (apart from the printing layers, of course), and the models feel firm and good.
The material is also exceptionally easy to print. With a heatbed, a glass plate, and some light tweaking, this material can quickly produce nicely made models. It won't warp at all if you keep bed temperature up, and I couldn't see a bit of stringing or similar on my models.
It's a bit softer, which makes it easier to print overall, and it won't snap in a bowden tube, or cause any other nasty problem. (Posted on 10/20/2016)
Second time ordering the standard-white filament from Colorfabb. Very pleased with the results this filament delivers. I have not yet had any problems with warping, not sticking to the bed and stringing on my UltiMaker 2+.
Using my 3dhub discount makes it even more attractive. 5 stars & keep up the good work. (Posted on 7/4/2016)
- Bloody excellent.
For some reason, white always seems to be the unruly teenager of PLA. This one though, I find exceedingly easy to deal with. No issues whatsoever, it just works (well, not counting my own screw-ups anyway). This is hands down the best white I can find. (Posted on 7/1/2016)
- nice color .. bad quality !
the color of this filament is amazing .. but everything else is bad! its finish is rough and it's hard to get a nice print in comparison to other colors .. colorfabb has to redesign the material .. as it is a very important color !

- Demanding Filament
This Filament has a very pleasing white color and surface feel.
But getting good prints with this filament on a brand new UM2+ is a real challenge. Three out of four prints failed miserably. It warps, it shrinks, it strings and it doesn't stick to the build plate. At extrusion temperatures between 210° and 220°C the material behaves extremely elastic almost like acrylic sealing compound. So far it's only good for prints that don't rely on exact dimensions. (Posted on 2/10/2016)
- Great Quality
Loved this, easy print and great quality finish. This was my first colorfabb purchase and the plastic was so much better than what i was using. Its colorfabb from now on. (Posted on 9/17/2015)
All colorFabb 3d printing filaments are produced in our own production facility, situated in the Netherlands. Since no external parties are involved in the making of colorFabb filament we can ensure consistent quality on every order.
Excellent diameter tolerance
An important machine in our production are the laser measurement systems used to check the diameter of our filament real time during production. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and helps us guarantee that each spool of colorFabb 3d printing filament produced within tolerance. We can guarantee 0,05mm +/- on both 2,85mm and 1,75mm colorFabb 3d printing filament, which means you can rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material.
Within minutes of production a spool of colorFabb 3d printing filament is sealed airtight with a double barrier foil. To go the extra mile, we’ll also seal the fancy cardboard box that we use to ship our product. You can make sure colorFabb 3d printing filament is fresh and ready for 3d printing when you’re done unboxing.
The colorFabb testlab features a wide range of popular 3d printers. We’re continuously testing on our 3d printers to keep checking the quality of the materials we produce and to develop exciting new materials for the maker community. If your not sure how to print with our materials on your 3d printer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The following printers are used in our lab:
- Ultimaker Original
- Ultimaker Original Dual Extrusion
- Ultimaker 2
- Makerbot Replicator 2s
- Delta Tower (E3D hot-end)
- Felix 20
- Leapfrog Creator
- Mass Portal Pharaoh ED
- Prusa i3 HEPHESTOS
Companies who are interested in having their 3d printer(s) featured in our testlab can contact us at email@example.com
ColorFabb was founded as a brand of Helian Polymers, a sister company of Peter Holland which have been active in the master batch and additives for the plastics processing industry. Our knowhow, network and partnerships is driving material innovations and quality. You can expect colorFabb to keep on developing interesting new materials, which will be tested on a variety of printers to make sure it’ll get the job done.
At colorFabb we have a well equipped 3d printing studio with a lot of popular 3d printers. We know our materials will give you excellent results and to help you get these results here are tips and trick for using colorFabb 3d printing filament.
Adviced 3d printing temperature:
Adviced 3d print speed:
40 - 100 mm/s
Advised Heated bed (if you have one, not strictly necessary):
Our PLA/PHA performs well on both heated and non-heated build platforms. For those users printing on a cold build platform we advise applying masking tape to the build area. The rough surface of the tape will provide enough adhesion for the first layer to stick and print almost without any warping.
Users using heated build platforms have quite a few options these days. The usual suspects are glass and aluminum build plates. For directly printing on glass or aluminum we advice user to apply glue-stick. A very thin layer will be sufficient to keep your print nicely in place. Another method is dissolving wood glue in water, you the consistency of the substance can be quite thin, a bit like milk. By applying just a few drops and smearing this out before you start heating the built plate will create a very thing layer which holds the PLA/PHA down very well. If applying this method, be careful that you don’t get your electronics wet.
Another method that works well with colorFabb PLA/PHA is polyimide tape, or Kapton tape. This tape is available as a very narrow strip or very wide strips which allow you to cover the build plate in one go. When the tape is applied correctly it can last for months.
TIP! Take your time leveling the bed and adjusting the the gap between 3d printer nozzle and build plate. A perfect first layer will is very important, especially for 3d prints with a large bottom layer. Having the nozzle set to close to the build plate will cause a pressure build up and as a result back flow in most hot ends.
TIP! PLA/PHA has very minimal warping tendencies, however if your printing parts which take up the maximum of you buildspace you might see some warping. If it’s very important that your part is perfectly flat than we suggest to turn down the fan that is cooling your part. This allows the material to slowly get rid of heat without warping. After a few centimeters you can turn on the cooling if the part needs it.
*3d printers have lots of different types of hot-end which makes it extremely difficult to give aan temperature advice. We feel our temperature advice holds for most 3d printers, but should be considered as a starting point for you to find the temperatures that work in you setup. Don’t be afraid to go either higher or lower then our advised temperatures if you feel your set-up needs this.
Since colorFabb develops and produces their own filaments we have a lot of knowhow about our materials. Here you’ll find all kinds of interesting material specifications that will help you decide which material is best for your project.
Please note: The colorFabb transparent colors in the PLA/PHA range are pure PLA without the added PHA.
