Made in Germany, Laywood as a filament is made from 40% recycled wood that is combined with polymer binders allowing it to be melted and extruded like all of the other commercially available 3D filaments on the market today. In addition to smelling and feeling like wood, the new filament also has the ability to change its color shade depending on the temperature of your extrusion head. By varying how hot the head becomes, you can create interesting gradient effects from dark to light to give your final product that natural glow.

What we can see and feel based on the sample we got this is a very interesting expansion of what can be done with our 3D printers. This said, a few words of cautions to bare in mind:

Mixing of PLA and ABS can create a nightmare with your extruders so never forget that a polymer binder is all well, but does anybody have any experience with this. Most of us will print with PLA + WOOD + PLA and in this process we don't want clogged extruder heads or worse.

Another thing that I have not seen anyting written about is printing through boden cables!

If any of you out there has any experince please let us know, we will take a deep look into this and see if this is a product we will supply as well.

Hi Bo,

so many questions, so many delay on my side,

1.) Does this material exist for 3.00 as well as 1.75 mm material ?
both
 
2.) Is this material closest to PLA, ABS or melting GLUE ?
in temp near to PLA
 
3.) Have you tried printing this material through a BODEN cable/tube ?
I use BFB printers, please look in reprap forums
 
4.) What type of printer did you test ths material with, most important
is the FEEDER and the EXTRUDER type
I use BFB printers, please look in reprap forums
 
5.) What speed do you use in the X,Y plane of the printer
16-32 mm for 0,25 mm Layer, faster is possible but I dont do it
 
6.) What feeder speed do you use through the FEEDER same as
PLA or ABS ?
same diameter, same speed
 
7.) Have you tested mix usage of this material  PLA + WOOD + PLA
how long do you need to let the printer BLEED before changing material?
yes its oozing
 
8.) Any problem with carbonisation in the EXTRUDER ?
not under 250°, would crack above when stop longer time
 
And then I got some more clarifications!!!
 
1.) Is this material closest to PLA, ABS or melting GLUE ?
in temp near to PLA...  No I meant as a material, green natural
friendly like PLA or more twards ABS oilbased and less green :-)

oilbased _ also oil is from nature ;)
but as already written > itīs  eatable


2.) Have you tested mix usage of this material  PLA + WOOD + PLA
how long do you need to let the printer BLEED before changing material?
yes its oozing ( that in it's self sounds more like melting glue ) still I need
to know more about BLEEDING TIME when changing material in the printer
PLA -> ABS -> PLA can be a nightmare if you don't bleed the printer say 15-30 minutes.

I change from Laywoo to another material within two minutes running the new material until itīs clean,
so I dont know what you need 20 minutes for ?
the new material will feed out rest of old > itīs a good idea to
  •  feed the new material first with higher temp than the old,
  • than colder , down to same temp as old material (if not to cold for the new one)
  • alternating temps do clean better because of "abrasiv" effect of different viscosities.
Basically they recommend bleeding the printer for 2 minutes, experimentation is probably needed!
