Kai Parthy Light Cherry Wood Flexible LAYWOO-D3 Filament - 1.75mm (0.25kg)
0.25kg of flexible LAYWOO-D3 wood filament, coiled and ready-to-use for 3D Printing.
This new flexible LAYWOO-D3 emulates the supple nature of a tree branch and will give your wooden prints the ability to bend further without breaking.
0.25KG of 1.75mm flexible LAYWOO-D3 wood filament in light cherry color. This filament allows you to give your prints a fantastic wood texture.
You can print the filament in a range from 190°C to 250°C. Printing at lower temperatures will produce a brighter color while printing at higher temperatures will create a darker print. The printed wood will appear rough, similar to MDF (Medium-Density Fiberboard). Playing a little with the material feed settings brings more craters or a smoother surface.
- Very little warp
- Rough or smooth surface possible during one print
- Paintable, grindable, carvable and stainable
- Printable tree-rings
- Sticks well to blue painters tape on an unheated bed.
- Will stick to Kapton tape on a heated bed (50C)
- Contains recycled wood and harmless binding polymers (still, we don't recommend ingesting)
- Similar thermal durability as PLA
- No need to store in a sealed bag or use desiccant (wood loves humidity)
At print temperature LAYWOO-D3 is less viscous than PLA or ABS, a few extra steps can help improve your printing experience:
- Adding extra extrusion to the beginning of your print will help prevent dry extrusion during the initial layers.
- Increasing the retraction setting of your part during slicing will reduce 'leakage' while the hotend is moving between sections (especially over open areas).
LAYWOO-D3 will harden over time, for delicate parts allow 30-60 min for your print to set.
Alternating the temperature during your print (even by as little as 10 degrees) will vary the coloration, giving it a 'grained' look.
