Quality at Speed: Anycubic High-speed PLA Filament

With the development of 3D printing technology, the materials for 3D printing have become more and more abundant. PLA has always been the most popular filament, in addition to the regular PLA, there are more PLA with special attributes have been created to meet the needs of more users. High speed PLA is one of them. It is specially designed for faster and more efficient printing requirements, enabling faster FDM printing. This guide will introduce Anycubic High-speed PLA filament, which is specially customized for fast 3D printers. Read on, you will learn about its characteristics and use.

What is High Speed PLA?

Polylactic acid, often becoming PLA, is a commonly used and easy-to-use material for FDM 3D printing. Derived from renewable resources such as cornstarch or sugar cane, PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic, and being environmentally friendly is one of the reasons for its popularity. When used as a material for 3D printing, PLA is relatively inexpensive, has fast printing quality, and produces low odor, which can meet most of the conventional printing needs.

High speed PLA filament is mainly to meet the needs of fast 3D printing, cooperate with fast printers, directly improve the production efficiency of 3D printing, and optimize the printing experience of users. High speed PLA, combines the excellent printing performance of traditional PLA with improved fluidity and heat dissipation. It also performs well for meeting the challenges of fast 3D printing while ensuring print quality. With a high-performance fast FDM printer, such as Anycubic Kobra 2 Pro, it takes only 14 mins 56s to complete the 3DBenchy.


Characteristics of Anycubic High Speed PLA Filament

Compared with ordinary PLA filament, Anycubic High speed PLA filament has better fluidity and heat dissipation. The fast PLA formulation has been carefully designed to optimize its viscosity so that the material is fed smoothly and consistently into the nozzle. Properly enhancing the fluidity of PLA filaments can enable high-speed extrusion after the material is melted, improve printing efficiency while ensuring printing accuracy, and reduce the risk of printing irregularities and failures.

Enhanced heat dissipation can speed up cooling and forming. With uniform and rapid cooling of the high-speed PLA, each layer of printing is well bonded, and it is not easy to deform and warp. This is essential for creating a smooth surface and a more stable and durable structure. The use of Anycubic High speed PLA filament supports faster printing speed, and takes into account the forming effect of the 3D prints, and the overhang part has excellent performance.

Performance of Anycubic High Speed Filament


It has excellent performance in fluidity and heat dissipation, making it suitable for users who have a need for printing speed. In addition to this, Anycubic High-Speed PLA Filament is also popular among 3D printing enthusiasts for its good printing results. It is designed with high toughness and low shrinkage rate to ensure more excellent quality of 3D prints, which is friendly for applications that emphasize aesthetics and precision. There is no need to worry about the quality and efficiency of printing, or about clogging and tangling of the filament. Anycubic High-speed PLA filament has a uniform diameter and spools of steam for smooth extrusion and printing, it is compatible with both fast FDM 3D printers and standard printers on the market.
