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

Questions and Answers
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.
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.
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
CONS: Can be somewhat brittle on the spool
PROS: Looks interesting
CONS: A little different to setup

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).
