How we developed the wood pla filament.

Wood 3D printing was born around 2012. The first filaments were PLA-based filaments with integrated sawdust. The early experiments, however, showed that sawdust wasn’t the best solution for either wood 3D printing nor wood pla  filaments. These days, wood filament is still PLA-based, but the wood is instead integrated in the form of wooden fibers. Many different types of wood have emerged, as well! You can now choose between birch, coconut, bamboo, timber, cedar, and many others.

Isanmate wood filaments contain 80% PLA and 20% wooden fiber. The presence of these particles gives the 3D printed parts the aesthetics of real wood. This filament is also less abrasive compared to other composite filaments such as carbon-fiber filled and metal filled, since wood particles are much softer. Now there were 5 different colors for your options.

Despite this seemingly low fraction of wood, we guarantee you’ll be impressed with just how wood-like the resulting prints feel. During printing, it basically smells like burning wood. From texture to smell, everything feels very real. This means wood 3D printed parts can be treated as real wood. In other words, it’s safe to sand the parts and apply different paints and coatings.
There are some wood-like filaments on the market that only contain wood coloring, but no actual wood particles, so these typically have a very different look and feel.

Here we present the printouts by using our different colors of wood filament, and you can refer the below setting data.
