PLA (Polylactic Acid) is created from plant products including corn, potatoes or sugar-beets. PLA is considered a more 'earth friendly' plastic compared to petroleum based ABS. PLA is biodegradable and can be composted at commercial compost facilities. It won't bio-degrade in your backyard or home compost pile however.
PLA is stronger, and more rigid than ABS. It may be occasionally more difficult to work with in complicated interlocking assemblies and pin-joints. Printed objects will generally have a glossier look and feel than ABS. PLA can be sanded and machined. The lower melting temperature of PLA makes it unsuitable for some applications, as parts spending the day in a hot car can droop and deform.
When properly cooled, PLA has higher maximum printing speeds, lower layer heights, and sharper printed corners. Combining this with low warping on parts make it a popular plastic for home printers, hobbyists, and schools.
