Wood-based filaments are typically a composite that combines a PLA base material with wood dust, cork, and other powdered wood derivatives. Typically, the filament consists of around 30% wood particles. 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. 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.

1. Extruder Temperature
We recommend an extruder temperature of 200°C for PLA.

2. Bed Temperature
While PLA/PLA+ can be printed on an unheated bed, for best results we recommend and a bed temp of between 50°C - 60°C. If poor adhesion is an issue, print the first two layers ONLY with the bed at 65°C (and 60°C for every subsequent layer).

3. Fan Control & Minimum Layer Time
PLA prints best when rapidly cooled with the aid of your extruder's fan. This will ensure a clean, crisp layers with neat details. For the best surface resolution possible, set the extruder fan speed to 100%.

4. Retraction
We recommend starting with a retraction speed of between 30-80mm/s and a retraction distance of Between 2-5 mm for a Bowden setup or 1-2mm for a direct drive printer.

5. Build Plate Adhesion
While PLA is less prone to warping compared to other materials, even PLA can use a little extra help sticking to the bed sometimes.

6. Print Slower
With proper fan cooling, PLA can achieve blistering print speeds. We've found that printing at 50mm/s or slower yields great results.

7. Keep Filament Dry
PLA is prone to absorbing moisture from the air when left out in the open. When left out in a non-airtight environment, PLA will begin to become brittle and snap when uncoiled, causing loading and feeding issues. When printing wet filament, small bubbles can also appear on the skin of your print marring an otherwise smooth surface as. In severe cases, steam and small popping noises can be noticed exiting the nozzle when printing. Finally printing with wet PLA also results in weaker 3D printed parts overall with as wet PLA forms weaker interlayer bond between each print layer of your 3D printed part. Fortunately, wet filament can be rescued by dehydrating it in an oven at 60°c for 12 hours or by storing the filament in a container with ample amounts of desiccant for 1-5 days.

8. With certain wood filaments, using different extruder temperatures will produce slightly different colors for the final printed part. Using this effect, you can setup different temperatures for different layers of your print in Simplify3D to create a realistic grain pattern on the surface of the printed part.

9. Due to the added wood particles in this plastic, standard 0.35 or 0.4mm nozzles can be challenging. The particles have a tendency to clump near the nozzle orifice, causing inconsistent extrusion or partial clogs. We recommend using a 0.5mm or larger diameter nozzle, as this significantly reduces the chances of clogging. It may also be a good idea to clear your nozzle regularly to remove any partial clumps that may have formed within the nozzle.
