With this new materical,you can print objects that look like wood,are workable as wood and depending on the temperature,can be printed lighter or darker.
The mixture of the filament is 40% of recycled wood and one binding Polymer and is comparable to the thermal solidity of PLA .The material can be printed at temperatures between 185°C und 230°C .At lower temperatures the printout will be lighter and at higher temperatures it will be darker.
Advantages of Laywood:
- Laywood can be further processed after the printing (polished,sawed,painted)
- There is no distortion
-It smells of wood
- It's composed of 40% recycled wood
-Brown tones can be achieved by adjusting the pressure temperature.
The processing temperatures above are only a guideline. Each 3D printer has its own style. It is necessary to achieve fine-tuning and optimizing the settings for best printing results.
We have tested Laywood with our printers, with 0.5mm nozzle you can print it..However, rather larger layers of thickness are recommended.t.And you should be aware that the brightest attainable color corresponds approximately to the Filamentcolor what dark wood is similar to.
Technical specifications of Laywood filament 3mm:
- Diameter: 3mm
- Material: Wood/Polymer
- Color: Cherry
- Spool size: Delivery without spool, wrapped as a ring
- Weight: 250g
Depending on the printer, the nozzle and the pressure settings, it may happen that the nozzle clogs!!
