FormFutura Tough PLA is a 3D printer filament that is roughly 750% more impact resistant than regular PLA filaments.

Our Tough PLA filament is a performance PLA that combines durability with ABS-like strength properties and yet it is a significantly stiffer 3D printing material than ABS filaments. Tough PLA exhibits excellent layer adhesion allowing 3D printed objects to achieve similar mechanical strength properties compared to injection molding. 


Key features 

  • Impact strength of 29.8 kJ/m2

  • Excellent machinability properties allowing multiple post-processing techniques, such as drilling, sanding, cnc, tapping, etc...

  • Superb layer adhesion

  • Stiff, strong and durable

  • Compatible with AquaSolve PVA and BVOH for complex multi-extrusion 3D printing



  • Tooling and manufacturing aids

  • Functional prototypes

  • Snap-fit assemblies

  • Jigs and fixures

General printing guidelines *
Nozzle size: ≥ 0.15mmLayer height: ≥ 0.06mmExperience level: Beginner
Print temp: ± 210 - 225° CFan speed: 50-100% 
Heat bed: ± 50 - 60° CEnclosure needed: No 

*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There are a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends and printer offsets that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.
