Precision 3D Filaments are not extruded to simply outperform the competition; they must also inspire. We honor the traditions of simplicity and elegance that shaped our history in extruding many forms of plastic. Drawing from traditions of excellence set by our parent company Marlon Inc. we carry the maxim “Shape Follows Function” even further: Shape Follows Emotion.

A bit more about us:

Precision 3D Filament is a division of Marlon Inc. and manufactured in [Boise, Idaho USA].  Marlon Inc. has been extruding precision filaments since 1992.  Marlon Inc. specializes in PVC extrusion.  PVC Spiral Supply, also a division of Marlon Inc. manufactures plastic spiral coil for the book binding industry.  We’ve also perfected extruding ABS for the Japanese and European markets due to their nonacceptance of PVC plastics.  We own and operate 15 high output plastic extruders and one compounding pelletizing extruder.  Marlon Inc. has the capacity to process 7 million pounds of material per year. 

We have perfected PLA filament with such precision, our tolerances are unmatched in the market today.  Our proprietary PLA formula has notable 3D printing characteristics such as precise detail, good adhesion to build plates (heating isn’t always required), less warping or curling, and low odor (no strong, greasy, or oily smell while printing). These properties make our PLA filament compatible with different types of printers and for a broad range of printing applications.  With our quality, customer service and quick turn-around, we are in position to become the premier 3D printer filament manufacturer in the USA.

Precision 3D Filament, a division of Marlon Inc.



PLA is a multipurpose material commonly used in 3D printing. PLA is a bioplastic, which means it is made from renewable natural resources such as corn starch and tapioca products.

Precision 3D Filament’s PLA is expertly formulated to give you the perfect filament for beginners and professionals alike. We recommend PLA because it truly is the most accessible and easy to work with material. PLA is a beautiful material because it has an excellent strength profile while printing without shrinkage. Additionally, PLA sticks to the bed very well. ABS is an excellent alternative but you do have to navigate the waters of shrinkage and bed adhesion to master ABS.


Precision 3D Filament’s PLA is compatible with nearly all 3D printers, including RepRap derivatives and those from MakerBot (such as the Replicator and Replicator 2), Ultimaker, Creality Ender Series, Bits from Bytes, Airwolf3D, Makergear, Printrbot, Bukobot, Type A Machines, Solidoodle, Leapfrog, and pretty much every other printer!

Recommended Extrusion Temperatures: 195C-225C

Dimensional Accuracy: ±0.02mm

All filament comes sealed in a bag with desiccant. We recommend keeping it stored that way until you are ready to use it.
