SUNLU PLA+ and PLA review

When I show my 3D-printed objects to friends, the most common question is, “How much does the filament cost?” SUNLU is known for its affordable 3D printing materials. In this review, we tested their PLA and PLA+ filaments. To check the quality and usability, I printed various things that I needed in the house.

PLA (Polylactic Acid) and PLA+ (also known as enhanced PLA, PLA Pro, or PLA Plus) are two popular 3D printing filaments used in Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing processes. While both are produced from biodegradable renewable resources (like cornstarch or sugarcane) and have similar base characteristics, there are some differences between them:

  • [Strength and Durability] PLA+ is often marketed as a stronger, more durable version of standard PLA. It typically has enhanced mechanical properties, including increased tensile strength and impact resistance. This makes it less brittle and more suitable for functional parts.
  • [Flexibility]…
