MakerBot 3D Printing Filament Types

From inexpensive concept development to strong durable end-use parts, there is a desktop 3D printing material for your project.

PLA Filament

A corn-based bioplastic. The most consistent filament for MakerBot 3D Printers. Safe for the classroom, office, or home. PLA Filament is non-toxic and easy-to-print with minimal warping or curling. Details such as sharp corners and edges print well and will generally display a glossier look and feel. Choose between small and large spools to produce the higher quality prints, reduce filament problems and minimize downtime.


Tough PLA Filament

MakerBot Tough PLA Filament is as tough as ABS, as reliable as PLA and is made to create durable, high-impact strength prototypes & fixtures. Tough PLA is engineered and tested for consistent results featuring tensile, impact and flexural strength that’s similar to ABS. Print jigs and fixtures with threaded and snap fits that can withstand repeated use.



PETG, one of the most widely used polymers today, is now available for 3D printing on the MakerBot Method desktop 3D printer. The first advanced material from Makerbot’s specialty line exhibits excellent temperature, moisture, and chemical resistance as well as higher strength and durability than both PLA and Tough PLA.

ABS Filament

MakerBot ABS Filament is the best, most consistent, and most tested ABS Filament for your MakerBot 3D Printer. More flexible than PLA, Makerbot ABS is great for mechanical designs or ones that have interlocking or pin-connected pieces. ABS has a longer lifespan, more impact resistant and displays a matte look & finish compared to PLA. With a high melting point, MakerBot ABS is also suitable for machines or car parts.

Flexible Filament

Open up a world of creative and exciting possiblities with flexible, durable parts. MakerBot Flexible Filament is polyester-based with a low melting point making it easier to extrude. Create new opportunities to stretch the limits of 3D printing as you create objects such as functional hinges, joints and things shaped to fit the human body.
