BigRep’s PLX filament is a PLA-derived, general-use bio performance material for open-environment 3D printing. An innovative and robust thermoplastic filament, PLX can print up to 80% faster than a standard PLA material with no modification to the 3D printer at a strength that exceeds the typical mechanical properties of even ABS-printed parts – enabling industrial additive manufacturing in large-format at unprecedented speeds. PLX is incredibly versatile, allowing printer settings to be tuned for either incredible speeds or beautifully smooth surface finishes. PLX delivers consistent, quality results that make it a reliable material for large-format printing in any industry.
As a material derived from organic compounds, PLX is biodegradable under the correct conditions. CO2 neutral and environmentally friendly, it has a much lower ecological impact than other plastics derived from fossil fuels.
- Up to 80% faster extrusion throughput
- Versatile for fine surface finishes
- Consistent quality results
- Environmentally friendly thermoplastic
I’m a big fan of PLX. It prints just as easily as PLA with standard print settings and delivers top-notch results. I had no parts peel or warp and every print came out looking great. I generally avoid the use of supports as much as possible but they’re totally manageable with this material. And being able to reduce print times by printing faster is a huge value add for manufacturers of all sizes. BigRep hit it out of the park with PLX.
