the ultimate tough PLA for tools, jigs and fixtures!BASF Forward AM filaments homepage
Ultrafuse PLA PRO1 is a tough PLA filament with proven quality, it was launched 2 years ago and has a track record of satisfied users since that date. As a tough PLA, PRO1 is excellent for use in tools, jigs and fixtures.
The high-speed engineering thermoplastic that prints as easy as PLA at speeds previously considered unusable and yet it retains far better mechanical properties that exceed printed ABS objects, something that the most demanding users have always had to make a compromise on prior to PRO1.

“I have to say that for me this is a game changer! I’m really impressed about the speeds I achieved with this material. Printing at 70mm/s with a proper an good result is no longer a problem.
Printing at low speed with low resolution like 0.05mm ended up in a smooth and perfect finish!”
Mike Naber – Naber Plastics – The Netherlands
“The first impressions are that it is very strong and it is easy to process”
Dr. Gavin Williams – Senior Technical Advisor – Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering (IISE) University of Derby – United Kingdom
“I have found Pro1 to be an extremely versatile, high quality filament able to create strong, robust parts with exceptional aesthetic qualities. The filament performs very well during printing with a consistent flow and no extrusion problems.”
By varying the print settings for this multi-purpose robust filament, users can home in on optimizing for speed, strength, surface quality or a mix of those qualities beyond performance levels of traditional filaments.
When you find yourself in an environment that requires reliable performance print after print, look no further than to increase your productivity with PRO1.
Ultrafuse PLA PRO1 offers professionals a solution that enables them to make functional parts without the hassle of tinkering with settings. It is a fast, strong and impact-resistant standard material suitable for all desktop FFF printers and has been developed to withstand high stress or strain. Therefore it is a perfect material for the creation of tools, jigs, and fixtures.
Ultrafuse PLA PRO1 filament has great thermal properties with a vicat softening temperature of 57⁰C. And when PRO1 is annealed, the vicat softening temperature is no less than 150⁰C, which is exceptional!
– SPEED: Reduce your printing time by 30%-80%, (subject to printer and object limitations)
– STRENGTH: Excels overall beyond printed ABS in mechanical property
– VERSATILITY: One filament that can be tuned towards blazing speed and excellent surface finish
– CONSISTENCY: Truly consistent filament, also between colors and batches, it will perform as expected, every time
