Want to 3D print wooden objects then take a look at ColorFabbs speciality BambooFill 3D printer filament. Its made with 80% ColorFabb PLA and 20% recycled Bamboo fibres. This is available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameter filament. Printing with ColorFabb BambooFill filament gives a print with a textured finish of a medium brown colour.
ColorFabb PLA is specially formulated to be less brittle than other PLAs (although see our Biome 3D PLA) by the addition of a small quantity of PHA. Each spool comes with a label on the packing that indicates the recommended printing temperature. For stronger prints and better reliability ColorFabb say that you can increase flow rate by 0-10%. This will cause the filament to keep going through the hot zone at a steady pace.
Its time to get experimenting to see what you can make out of wood!
