Share this Product
Have you ever wished that your 3D printing filament smelled like freshly brewed coffee? If the answer is yes, then boy howdy are you in luck! Go ahead and scratch your computer screen to test the scent of this quality roast!
With print ease similar to standard PLA, you can't go wrong with this high performance Proto-Pasta "Heat Treatable" HTPLA Aromatic Coffee filament! More durable than standard PLA, HTPLA can also be "heat treated" post-print for "higher temperature" performance than standard PLA, ABS, and Polyesters like PET. It might not be made from World's Best Coffee, but it might be World's Best Filament!
This otherwise odorless plastic releases an invigorating roast coffee scent when heated (as much as you may be tempted, do NOT consume the filament). Beyond this novel feature, the color is a beautiful pearlescent, translucent bronze when printed. The color turns opaque when heat treated for a more wood-like finish.
Aromatic Coffee HTPLA has a potential Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) of as much as 140C (285F) depending on post-processing. This means parts retain more stiffness and form to higher temperatures. No warping when left out in the sun!
We recommend printing this material at 190C-230C. No heated bed is required but may improve printing some geometry. Temperature resistance of up to 140C is achieved by annealing after printing in an oven at 60C-110C.
Just try it, and you'll understand why printing should smell good!
This is 1.75mm filament and is made in the USA by Proto-Pasta. Check out the Proto-Pasta site here for more information!
