PLA filament produces higher quality prints, reduces filament problems and minimize downtime. In comparison to ABS filaments PLA demonstrates must less part warping and curling. 3D objects with details like sharp edges and corners print well and PLA printed objects generally have a glossier look and feel.
If you're new to 3D printing, PLA filament is a good material to start with because it's easy to use and performs well on majority of prints.
