PLA is a basic 3D printing filament that is cheap, easy to work with, and suitable for many needs. PLA works best for figurines and quick prototypes.
PETG is a similar filament to PLA, but is much more durable and is better for technical parts. It is also cheap and easy to work with, but prints in less detail than PLA.
Flexible filaments are more expensive and print in less detail, but are great for use in prints that need to offer a flexible element such as toy car wheels, stamps, and more.

WHEN DOES MY PRINT NEED SUPPORTS?
A print will need supports when there is a high degree of overhang. Support material is made to support and hold the print as it is created, but is designed to be easy to remove. If you have questions about supports, the Prusa Knowledge Base can offer more details or you can call or email the Mac Lab with questions.
