PLA is one of the most commonly used filaments in 3D printing because it is so easy to use. PLA has minimal warping and shrinking compared to other materials, which means it thrives when making objects featuring flat surfaces and hard angles, or requiring tight tolerances for fit.

PLA is commonly used for prototypes, educational and architectural models, and artifact replicas. It can also be treated with a variety of post-processing techniques, it is a popular choice for users looking to paint objects after they have been printed, such as costume props and figurines. PLA is relatively brittle, so it is not recommended for thin, high strength applications.
