Filament Spectrum WOOD
Natural wood 3D printing
Spectrum WOOD is a material designed for 3D printing based on pure PLA blended with natural wood particles. Spectrum WOOD filament is a 100% organic and biodegradable product. Besides the visual aspects which imitate the appearance of wood, items manufactured of this material have a structure resembling the one of chipboards.
The material has a unique quality: not only does it looks like wood but it also feels like genuine wood, because of natural wood content in the composition. You may varnish finished prints and conduct mechanical treatments. Another distinctive feature is the specific smell of wood exuded during the additive manufacturing process using this material.
Because the product contains natural wood, each batch may slightly differ in color, as in nature.
- made of biodegradable raw materials
- allows for printing with the 0.4mm printing nozzle
- natural wood content
- perfect side surface of prints
- very good thermal insulation properties
- appearance of wood after printing
- allows for sanding and varnishing
- typical smell and appearance of wooden chipboards
- manufacturing items which provide both good thermal insulation and very high moisture resistance
- educational projects
- interior design
- advertising materials
- decorative art
The properties shown, attract the attention of entities dealing in decorative art and manufacture of all kinds of figurines and which use modern construction materials combining the advantages of plastics and natural materials.
Filament is reeled on the neat, transparent spool. Each spool contains information on the type of material, diameter and recommended printing temperature. Filament is vacuum-packed with a moisture absorber. Whole product packed in the original, folied Spectrum Filaments packaging.
VERIFY YOUR SPOOL – the most precise quality control system on the market
Filament for 3D printers is manufactured by the method of free extrusion, which is one of the most difficult processing techniques by extrusion, due to the particularly large impact of process parameters on product dimensions and material homogenization.
During the production each 1mm of Spectrum Filament is being continuously measured in 2 axis with ±0.8µm accuracy, what allows to obtain a high-quality final product. As a proof of this, Spectrum Filaments has introduced, as one of the few manufacturers in the world, the possibility of presenting online, individually for each manufactured spool:
- the course of diameter on the entire length of the spool,
- mean diameter,
- standard deviation.
Precise survey guarantees that Spectrum Filaments products meet rigorous market requirements.
