'Wood+' Wood Particle Filled 1.75mm PLA Filament (2.2lb)
This is a 2.2lb (1kg) roll of 1.75mm (standard) diameter PLA with wood pulp.
ZYLtech PLA Wood+: contains more wood (20% w/w) and will require a larger nozzle, such as a 0.5mm or 0.8mm, to allow the wood fibers to pass through easily.
We recommend a 220-225 celsius extrusion temp for this particular type of filament. Your machine may vary; consider printing a temperature tower (thingiverse.com) for the best extrusion temperature for your printer.
The high wood content and lighter base color makes it perfect for staining with various wood dyes or stains. Printing with a smaller nozzle will more than likely result in a clog if your temps and retractions settings are not tuned to accommodate this filament. It is possible but the chances are high for clogging.
Please Note: many print quality issues are not necessarily caused by the filament, but can instead be fixed by adjusting slicer settings or making minor tweaks to a a printer's mechanical parts. Please consider taking our basic 3d printing class for more information.
We are a nonprofit, mission-driven organization, so we make no secret of our pricing. We bought this in bulk so that we could get a cheaper price, marked it up a little, and we make a few dollars to put toward our mission of educating and empowering the public to harness manufacturing technology. Our goal is to foster a maker economy in Middleboro and the surrounding region, and we hope you'll find this price competitive with other filament sales online.
