ABS and PLA plastic filaments are two of the most popular filament materials in the 3D printing market for their versatility, but each comes with its strengths and flaws. 

* ABS recycling consists of re-pellatizing and re-extruding into stock filament for re-use

**Can be recycled as part of municipal recycling program 


Extrude at about 270 ̊C

Requires UP’s heated bed feature to prevent warping of larger parts (51 ̊C–105 ̊C)

Works well without cooling fan

Good bonding with Acrylic

Requires additional adhesion enhancing techniques such as UP Perf board, to prevent warping and peeling of larger parts

Capable of producing finely detailed prints

Resistant to water

More flexible, resilient and durable

Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents (Acetone or MEK)

Will produce strong odor if not specifically mated to extruder temperature settings. Genuine UP Fila runs virtually odor free on the UP extruder


Stable and long lasting. Will not break-down but can be recycled*/**

Ideal for working parts and functional prototypes 


Extrude at about 220 ̊C

Benefits from UP’s heated bed (51 ̊C–105 ̊C)

Benefits greatly from cooling fan

Very firm bonding with Acrylic

Adheres well to a variety of surfaces

Very limited print quality

Very soluble over time

More brittle

Can be bonded using adhesives

Organic odor PLA is plant based



Ideal for large 3D prints, food-safe prototypes, lost-wax casting which burns out cleanly and non-toxic if carbonized 

Genuine UP Fila filaments are formulated to take full advantage of your UP printer.

Affordable and available in a variety of colors.
