All of our machines print computer designs in three dimensions using PLA. Short for Polylactic Acid, PLA is a plant based corn product, which is biodegradable so the environmental impact is lessened.
You can create your own designs using Tinkercad, a computer-aided design (CAD) program that is easy, intuitive and child friendly too, or you can grab a ready-made file from Thingiverse, a repository of 3D designs that are free to use.
