    Description
     
    Foam Feature icons_opt
    Wood with no mess :  All existing wood mimic 3D printing filaments are based on wood-polymer composites, i.e. blends of polymer and chopped wood powder. We used a completely different approach when designing PolyWood™. Instead of using wood to mimic wood, we developed a unique foaming technology to deliver a material that mimics wood structurally. PolyWood™ is composed entirely of polymers. The Results? Excellent print quality without the risk of nozzle jams.

    Light weight Feature icons_opt
    Light Weight: PolyWood™ is the first and so far the only 3D printable foam material. The density of PolyWood™ is on average 0.8 g/cm³ which is 35- 40% lighter than regular PLA, so only PolyWood™ can achieve that light weight nature of Natural Wood. This leads to many interesting properties and potential applications such as lightweight structures, membrane, damping devices, and with its post processing potential even watertight models.

    endless possibilities Feature icons_opt
    Endless Possibilities: Since PolyWood™ contains no actual wood, we can create any colour aesthetic we want. As it also contains a foamed structure, parts printed in PolyWood™ can achieve amazing surface finish that minimises the visual layering due to the nature of FFF/FDM technology. This has not been obtainable with any other printing material on the market to date. (Currently under development; Stay tuned for more updates.)

    Build platform:
    All our products work well with common build plate surfaces such as the blue tape, Kapton tape, glass, etc. However for the best user experience, we recommend that you use our materials with BuildTak™, a build plate surface designed specifically for desktop FDM/FFF printers. You can purchase this material here.

    I couldn't get rid of stringing even by using different bed heating, retraction speed or printing speed. It says: "Instead of using wood to mimic wood, we developed a unique foaming technology. Polywood is composed entirely of polymers. The results? Excellent print quality and jam-free printing". And print results don't look anything close wood-like. It is basically brown-ish PLA. No jamming, that's fine but stringing destroys your fine detailed prints. I also purchased PolyPlus PLA - white of Polymaker and it works perfect, I'm not sure what's wrong with this PolyWood technology.

    Absolutely love this filament. It does continue to have a little stringing, but nothing like colorfabb or formfutura, and you get very little chance of jamming. Killer feature for me is the rigidity along with the 0.8g density. Just increase your retraction distance and speed to compensate If you want a nice looking filament, with the ability to create strong 3d printed items with a reduced weight, this is almost the only solution you have!
