add:north PLA Wood
add:north’s PLA Wood is a blend that contains 40% wood fibres and 60% biobased PLA.
The finished print smells, feels and looks like wood, and is very easy to post-process with a fine sandpaper for excellent results. You might get the feeling that you enter a wood workshop instead of your printer room while printing this material.
Made in Sweden, it is one of the most sustainable filaments out there.
Printing with PLA Wood:
- It’s super easy to print with it and there is almost no shrinkage at all, so no need for extra bed adhesion.
- There is also no requirement for any special nozzle, it works just fine in a standard brass nozzle. You can use a 0.4mm nozzle to print with PLA Wood, but we don’t recommend going smaller than that.
- For best results we recommend drying the filament before and during printing, especially if you’re working in a humid environment. For drying we recommend the FilaDryer S2 from SUNLU.
- You don’t need any special setup to get great results with PLA Wood on any 3D printer. As long as you keep the filament dry, you can use standard PLA slicer settings to achieve great prints. Recommended printing temperature: 200-230°C
