Printing temperature - 190-230 ℃
Bed Temperature - Heated to 60C or no heat required.
PLA is made from Polylactic Acid which can be found in corn and other vegetables. PLA has a very low melting point and can easily melt if your model is left inside a hot car for instance, and will distort very easily in hot water. PLA is probably the most popular filament because of it's ease of use for anyone new to 3D Printing.
I love printing things out of the glow in the dark PLA for family and friends, such goodies as glow in the dark key fobs etc next I'll try some photos.
Our real world settings for making good looking prints using PLA are as follows:
We use a 3mm nozzle.
We print on glass, no tape, only hair spray (Firm Hold)
Our bed temperature is 60C
Nozzle temperature 220C to 230C
Layer Height 0.12mm
Initial Layer Height 0.2mm
Fan Speed is always a tricky one. If you live in the northwest or northeast you know how it can get pretty cold this time of the year, and the wind can get very chilly. I found if the fan is on 100% it can start to cool off the nozzle quite a bit, and as the nozzle temp drops, the print starts to show little bumps and it feels very rough to the touch. If you notice a drop in the nozzle temp just lower the fan speed a little at a time and watch for the nozzle temperature to rise up again and hold its original 220C. You should then see the PLA putting down a a nice normal line again. If you have a display you can lower or raise the fan speed there without having to stop printing.
