Within our EasyWood™ product range we have now developed EasyWood™ Ebony. EasyWood™ Ebony is a beautiful colonial dark brown wood filament which enables you to 3D print wooden objects with a very deep and classy black brownish appearance.
EasyWood™ looks, feels and smells like real wood. EasyWood™ Ebony is a unique mixture of 40% grinded wood particles in combination with the modified and proven easy-to-print binding polymers used for our EasyFil™ filaments. This extraordinary blend has resulted in a high-end and unsurpassed “easy to print” wooden filament.
EasyWood™ Ebony has a beautiful colonial blackwood colour and has similar thermal properties as our EasyFil™ PLA. Because of its low shrinkage factor, EasyWood™ is nearly warp-free and therefore EasyWood™ will not deform after cooling. Due to its low tendency to warp EasyWood™ can be printed without a heated print bed. If your printer is however equipped with a heated print bed we recommend to set your heat bed temperature to ± 35° to 60°C.
EasyWood™ Ebony prints best at a printing temperature range within 210°C and 225°C. Printing with EasyWood™ is remarkable easy, as it is a very easy to process material and an excellent first layer adhesion can be obtained by printing at various undergrounds without needing a heated print bed.
Next to its “easy to use” features, our Formfutura EasyWood™ filament range has an excellent roundness and very tight diameter tolerances, which makes this filament a perfect match with all common desktop 3D printers. Printing with EasyWood™ 3D printer filament will go very smoothly with basically all FFF/FDM technology based desktop 3D printers, such as:
Our EasyWood™ does not contain any hazourdas, or chemical substances. As a matter of fact our EasyWood™ filaments are RoHS certified and REACH compliant. Post-processing possibilities You can obtain a beautiful wood-nerve structure in your EasyWood™ Ebony printed objects by post-processing your print by grinding it a little bit with a piece of fine grit sandpaper. By grinding your printed object a bit you will highlight the relief, or rough edges/surfaces, of your printed object with different shades of the its colonial blackwood colour.
Post-processing with sandpaper will have the biggest effect on rough surfaced EasyWood™ Ebony 3D printed objects.

General Tips & Tricks for printing with EasyWood™ filaments The printing temperature guideline for printing with our EasyWood™ filament is approximately 210-225°C. As each desktop 3D printer has its own unique characteristics, you might need to tweak around with your temperature settings a bit to get the best results. To obtain optimal results for your prints you need to take into account variables like your 3D printer’s nozzle diameter, your printing speed settings, and layer height.
EasyWood™ has similar thermal properties to our EasyFil™ PLA. Therefore it can be printed both with and without a heated print bed. However, if your desktop 3D printer does have a heated print bed it is recommended to set your print bed temperature to approximately 35° to 60° C.
A good first layer adhesion is of the utmost importance in obtaining the best results for your prints. Firstly make sure that you print bed is accurately levelled and clean. EasyWood™sticks really well to an unprepared print bed. If you would however like to improve your first layer adhesion, then we recommend to prepare your print bed with Eurocel Blue Masking Tape. EasyWood™ sticks extremely well to this masking tape. Preparing your print bed with Eurocel Blue Masking Tape will not only get your EasyWood™ print to stick like a charm to your print bed, it will also allow you to remove your printed object easily from your print bed.

First of all I'd like to thank FormFutura for giving me the opportunity to perform my student project and for sending me a coil of this filament.
I have got to say that this material is really nice to print with and has interesting physical properties. It's effort resistance is quite impressive for a wooden-based filament since it can be as strong as ABS in certain cases while still having PLA flexibility. It is possible to create a all-purpose piece by simply modelling it with a decent toughness and a alveolus internal structure.
Prining with this also has an aesthetical aspect. Even if your printer is set to make not so thin layers you can end up with a wood-lookalike creation, and the sandy sensation added to the material makes you think you're touching soft plank. It's quite pleasant :)
I'm very satisfacted with this and the multiple color choices allows to imagine a whole bunch of things.

Very good material, and easy to use. Please add more colors like "Yellow (pine)", "White (oak)", "Orange (mahogany)", "Red (Rose wood)" etc for wood series.

I think i just fell in love! It print so so fine. And it smells like insence. Can you make sandal Wood filaments? Excellent work, thanks!

Fantastic Filament! the coconut prints beautiful with a wonderful rich bark brown color. its rather easy to print with excellent layer height bonds. the ebony is equally beautiful and really resembles African ebony wood. I will defiantly be using for my woodworking accent/inlay peace's. As for printing settings.
I use 210C to 214C with a 0.4 nozzle at 0.1 layer height and bed temperature at 45C with out a single problem.

First of all...I am giving 4 stars only because there is always room for improvement! All in all, that is a great filament. We have tried PLA from other companies that is harder to print with than easywood. Literally no changes in the settings we use for PLA other than printing temp at 210 (we normaly use 295) and the heated bed at 60 ( normally 65) . I have been reading on the internet that the teflon cover of the Hotend gets worn out faster and that is something I would like Formfutura to leave a comment on. Other than this concern, completely standart Printrbot Simple Metal with the UBIS hotend - prints the wood like a charm :)
