LAYWOO - D3, ColorFabb's Woodfill series, and Timberfill are wood-like 3D printer materials that give 3D printed objects the look and feel of fiberboard. They imbue parts with other wood-like attributes, such as the ability be cut, painted, and sanded. These filaments use PLA as their base, and mix other materials (usually in powder form)into them. The PLA gives the 3D printer compatibility and ease of use while the material contributes to the look, feel, and properties of the filament. With Woodfill, LAYWOO-D3, and Timberfill, you get the color and texture of real wood with your finished prints, but with Corkfill, you get the added benefit of its light weight. With these organic fills, be cautious of too high of a temperature, as it will result in the wood burning which will give you a darker colored print. It is important to remove the filament from the extruder fairly soon after finishing a print, as the filament will begin to burn in the nozzle and start to clog it. These filaments are all available in both 1.75mm or 3mm unspooled and spooled rolls.
Wood PLA 3D Printing Filament Properties :
- Wood filaments looks and feels similar to actual wood with printing properties of PLA
- Best used for wooden busts, sculptures, or tikis. Anything really complex to chisel.
- Different extruder temperatures produce different colors; the hotter, the darker.
