PLA (Polylactic Acid) is one of the most popular filaments in 3D printers. It's easy to print, does not shrink much and doesn't require a heated build platform.
PLA is a biodegradable plastic made from renewable natural resources. PLA has a low shrinkage factor and will not deform after cooling.
PLA tends to deform when exposed to high temperatures. In warm areas (direct sun, in a car, ..) ABS or another type of filament might be a better solution.
