If you have very hot summers then I think it couldn't last very much, as normal plastic would degrade too, and pla is weaker.
It would be interesting to try personally its real durability.
I'm going to use this feeder now that it's snowing, and then I will put it away when weather is mild. Winter is the worst season for birds.
Well, I can't even get regular plastic to hold up here in the south.Â $20 bird feeder, if I am lucky, will last 2 years in the weather.Â The sun is so intense it cracks it so PLA would probably be even worse.Â I don't know as I have never printed in it and only read people saying it degrades too much and if in the sun and rain it will not melt it just start to biodegrade before your eyes almost.
The fact that it is biodegradable, doesn't mean it melts under the rain, it means that can be easily recycled to monomer by thermal depolymerization, or hydrolysis.
