Wood Based PLA Filament:
Wood PLA is another addition to ZEN’s exotic range of filament. The polymer contains wood based dust that fuses together at the melting stage of this filament. It provides a stunning wooden finish that can be sanded and stained. Wood PLA is essentially still a PLA filament and can be printed at standard PLA temperatures.
PLA Filament is known as Poly-Lactic Acid and is a hard bio-degradable composite material.
When starting with 3D Printing we always recommend starting with PLA Plastic as it is the easiest to print with due to its low co-efficient of shrinkage. ZEN Filament has a printing temperature that ranges between 190 and 220 degrees. This range depends on any cooling features your printer might have. PLA Plastic can be used for printing models, samples, prototypes and any other parts that wont be in contact with direct heat or direct sunlight. Leaving PLA Prints in a hot car is also not recommended. PLA is also not suitable for moving or mechanical parts. See ZEN ABS Filament for those attributes
ZEN Filament favours lower temperature settings in comparison to other brands of filament.
Tips and Cautions:
- Wood PLA Is an exotic filament, it may not conform to the standard plastic norms and therefore a few slicer settings might need to be tweaked to get a perfect finish. If you are getting lines and stringing. ZEN Recommends that you reduce your retraction settings on your printer for better results.
-After printing with ZEN Wood, do not leave the extruder at high temperatures for long periods of time. This can burn the wood particles and cause them to “ash” and block your nozzle. Always remove the wood filament after printing.
-If your prints are dark or turning brown. Try reduce the temperature by a few degrees.
