Almost three years after we have launched our PLA Economy range we are happy to announce a new color to one of our most popular products: Light Gray. PLA Economy Light Gray is very close to RAL 7035.

This print was made on the Stacker S4 XL and took 3 days and 4 hours to make, printing with 0.2mm layer height. PLA Economy is very reliable and works extremely well for long projects!
With the addition of this very nice subtle gray shade we offer our users another much requested color. PLA Economy is available on 2.2kg, 4.5kg and 8kg spools only. It is very well suited for the maker who needs quality filament at an affordable price. It is a perfect material for large volume and small series production, made with the guaranteed colorFabb quality that we are known for.
PLA Economy is now available in six of the most popular colors. ColorFabb PLA Economy is not a standard PLA. It has been modified for better layer adhesion and flow properties to get better performance over other basic PLA filaments. Because it’s made with the same processing technology used for other premium colorFabb products, this PLA Economy will be just as reliable.
A good starting point for the settings is:
Adviced 3d printing temperature
Adviced 3d print speed
40 – 100 mm/s
Advised Heated bed (if you have one, not strictly necessary)
100% fan cooling for best aesthetics, this gives best performance on overhangs and small details. For best mechanical performance try printing with the least amount of cooling needed, for optimal layer adhesion.
PLA Economy Light Gray is available to order now and ships as from September 17th 2019
