    Premium 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75MM .5kg/spool, Wood

    Give your 3D printed objects the look and feel of real wood using this 1.75mm Laywood 3D Printer Filament from Monoprice!

    Laywood is an extrusion material made from 40% recycled wood combined with polymer binders to allow it to melt and print like any other material. It doesn't warp, doesn't shrink, and doesn't require a heated print bed. The finished product can be sanded like ordinary wood and even smells like wood. The color can be varied from light to dark by increasing the printing temperature through its 190 ~ 220°C printing temperature range.

    Reel Dimensions:

    • Spool Diameter: 200mm (7.87")
    • Spool Width: 37mm (1.46")
    • Hub Diameter: 53.5mm (2.11")
    • Hub Width: 37mm (1.46")

    What is the best print end and bed temperature to use with this? My supports keep shrinking away from the print bed.
    Aaron S on Jul 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I don't have any specific setting when I use this filament on my Maker Select, but usually 195-200 degrees C and the bed temp is usually 60 degrees C. I print items using either a brim or the raft. What I have noticed is that the first layer, especially the brim, must be firmly adherent to the bed. When the brim is printed, sometimes the brim is very flat, almost invisible . Those prints don't budge during the print and in fact, is very hard to remove from the bed when finished. Sometimes when it begins to print the brim, if each layer pulls away and doesn't adhere to the bed, sometimes I will abort the print, raise the bed closer to the print head, and then restart. Also, when printing large flat objects, the print will pull away from the bed, usually when there is a right angle corner. I know you are paying a lot more for this filament compared to regular PLA, but the prints look very much like wood. It might be a little harder to print than the Hatchbox wood fiber PLA, but it looks more like wood to me. Hope this helps. Good luck.
    can it be dissolved with alcohol?
    A shopper on Mar 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: PLA doesn't react with alcohol.
    How is durability for this filament - best non wood filament comparison?
    A shopper on Apr 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The filament is a little more brittle than most PLA, but the printed models are quite durable. the wood is a little tricker to print with because it is stringy. The models however are worth the hassle if you sand and varnish them they can be quite stunning and look like they are carved from a wood block.

    Nice product
    I've printed out a few figurines and boxes with this material. It has a real wood like feel and look. It has real wood mixed with PLA. I do find it stringier than regular PLA, and lowering the temperature to try to remedy that causes layer bonding issues. I didn't have much luck with more extreme retraction settings. It cleans up well so the strings aren't a big issue.. My sweet spot is about 195C. It adheres well to glue stick. Bed temp 55C and up seems fine.
    I had problems with overhangs wanting to warp up until I enabled the cooling fan I made for cooling the part just under the extruder. This was key for making great detailed parts.

    PROS: Nice look and feel. Nice finish with sanding, stains and Verathane.

    CONS: Stringy and warps up without cooling on overhangs. These are not deal breakers though. Knowledge is power.

    Great Product
    I have gone through 2 spools (and have more ordered) of this filament and found that it works wonderfully. I have not spent to much time with changing colors of the wood by altering the temp during the print job but everything looks good. I am using a Maker Select with no additional mods.. printing at 210-220c and heating printbed to 70. Only failed prints were due to calibration issues.

    It feels stronger than standard PLA and doesn't really sound like plastic when you tap it.

    PROS: Looks great
    easy clean up
    works well with wood filler putty
    works well with Superglue

    CONS: Doesn't come in 1k spools.

    Got wood?
    I'm using this with the MP select mini.

    Definitely stronger than PLA, quite a bit more brittle than most filaments on the spool but unless your bowden is an 'S' I'd say most printers will handle it just fine. Beautiful colour, layers end up looking like wood grain and smells/feels like it's super strong balsa.

    Would advise NOT heating the print bed when removing flat pieces, as it will warp with not very much heat on a finished piece, otherwise it's great to print at 40-50c on the bed and the advertised 190-220c hot end temp, I prefer 215c just for the color and the adhesion strength between layers.

    PROS: Good colour
    Strong
    Smooth printing
    Cheap
    Consistent quality

    CONS: Can be somewhat brittle on the spool

    Seems a bit stringy, have not had perfect results yet...but I am betting that most of that is finding the perfect setting for it.

    PROS: Looks interesting

    CONS: A little different to setup

    Takes a bit of trial and error to get temperature correct so it adheres to table with a good print

    Great filament
    I've printed a few things on it now and this filament is fantastic. It prints better than any of the others that I have (MP PETG and Dremel PLA). As advertised, it does really look and feel like it was carved out of a piece of wood. Prints are very lightweight and feel like they should be brittle, but from playing around with it and an identical part made of PLA, it doesn't seem to be significantly weaker. I intend to eventually see how similarly to real wood you can treat it, with some staining, polishing, etc. Should be interesting.

    I printed at 195C with the bed at 55C and everything turned out great. Stuck to painters tape with no problem and popped right off with barely a nudge after. I haven't messed around with changing the temperature much, since I seem to have hit a good spot the first time. There is a lot of stringing. If you have any hollow areas, it'll look like a spider tried to make a home in it while it was printing. It comes off easy, though, so it's not really a problem.. Any rough spots can be sanded down easily, just like real wood (which I suppose it technically is).

    Looks land feels like balso or bamboo wood
    I printed 5 shot glass sized cups with this material and they look and feel like a light wood. When I stack the 5 of them on top of each other it looks exactly like a reed of bamboo. It's really neat stuff and worth the extra expense over the other PLA colors. I found it to print great between 205-210C with the bed at 50C..

    stringy and unpredictable
    very cool look and feel, but the prints are brittle and stringy no matter what.

    looks like plastic
    structurally very weak and brittle. Looks like plastic instead of wood.

    This wood product runs terribly its leaves strings everywhere you can spend hours trying to tweak it and it just runs poorly . Also instead of looking like a wood it looks like waffle cone the type you have when you're eating ice cream .
