NEW! Bendable LAYWOO-D3.With this revolutionary new material you can print bendable objects that look and smell like wood!!
LAYWOO-D3 FLEX has a lower tensile strength than normal LAYWOO-D3, but has a far higher degree of elasticity. Perfect for 3D printing belts, wooden decorations or even small pieces of furniture.
LAYWOO-D3 FLEX is a German engineered wooden desktop 3D printer filament. To be precise LAYWOO-D3 FLEX filament is a mixture of 40% recycled wood with a binding polymer. This wood/polymer composite allows the filament to be printed just like thermoplastic filaments – such as ABS and PLA – but gives your creation a wooden-like appearance.
LAYWOO-D3 FLEX filament is designed for 3D printers based on RepRap technology. The thermal strength of LAYWOO-D3 FLEX filament is similar to PLA and can be printed between 175°C and 250°C. After printing, your object will look and smell like wood and it can also be handled like wood. After printing you can cut, grind and paint your creations similar as you can do with wooden objects.
Depending on the temperature at which LAYWOO-D3 FLEX filament is printed, it will take on a different shade of brown. This means that by intentionally varying the printing temperature, you can simulate a tree’s growth ring effect. At 180°C your LAYWOO-D3 FLEX prints will have a light colour and at 245°C your print will become darker. We recommend to use a 0.5mm nozzle for our LAYWOO-D3 FLEX to stop clogging of the nozzle.
We currently sell this revolutionary LAYWOO-D3 FLEX filament in coils of 250 grams.
