ALGA is back and it's better than ever!
ALGA 3D printer filament is an optimized PLA combined with nuisance algae that has been removed from the environment, creating a markedly sustainable material by helping to keep the ecology in balance through remediation. ALGA features an earthy color palette and has a unique texture that resembles bone, sandstone, or wood.
We've also reformulated ALGA making it much less brittle and more optimized for 3d printing by adding an additional bioplastic component.
In addition ALGA is now wound onto our 1KG eco-friendly spooling.
Select colors are in stock now and shipping same day.
The algae content of ALGA produces a unique color palette that will vary slightly from one batch to another. That said we have strived to reproduce the original ALGA colors as closely as possible.
ALGA filament is 100% biodegradable and is the perfect material for prototyping, educational and design or artistic projects inspired by nature. ALGA parts also releases nitrogen into soil so your prints can even aid in nitrogen fixation.

Originally developed by Algix, 3D Printlife is proud to be the sole manufacturer of their unique and sustainable 3d materials. We are thrilled to integrate their sustainable, high performance materials into our portfolio as we work together to improve sustainability in 3d printing.
Made in the USA with 100% virgin PLA resin, remediated algae, and precision manufacturing combined to deliver the ultimate in consistent and sustainable 3d printing for hobbyists to Industry 4.0.
ALGA meets ASTM D6400 standards for biodegradability and maintains a dimensional accuracy better than +/- 0.05mm.
Every inch of ALGA is measured to ensure that it is within the strictest standards for quality, diameter, and ovality. ALGA is 1KG of filament wound onto a heavy recycled cardboard spool that is biodegradable and bound with a recyclable tin end cap. In fact the entire spool can be tossed directly into your recycling bin! The spool includes both a cutout for viewing filament and dual puncture slots to secure filament when not in use. The flange can even rotate to in either direction to aid in securing the filament wherever it has been cut.
The spool was specifically designed for universal fit with most 3d printers in use worldwide and is compatible with Ultimaker printers. Each spool of ALGA is carefully wound to exacting standards to minimizing crossovers and loopbacks that can lead to snags and snaps.
In addition, a portion of the proceeds from every spool of ALGA will be donated to plant a tree. Every spool helps rejuvenate iconic forests in key locations throughout the United States.
