3DTomorrow Wood PLA – The only UK Made Wood PLA – 3D Printer Filament, 1kg, 1.75mm

(1 customer review)

£34.99

  • | WOOD-LIKE APPEARANCE | If you’re looking to take your prints to the next level, our premium Wood PLA will help you do just that, with a finish that barely looks printed.
  • | PREMIUM FILAMENT | Extensively tested, our Wood PLA works best with a 0.5mm+ nozzle. Select a Steel nozzle (or harder) to resist any abrasion.
  • | ANTI-SNAP TECHNOLOGY | Unlike some wood filament that snap with the slightest touch, 3DTomorrow Wood PLA is pretty TOUGH (within reason of course)!
  • | ECO FRIENDLY | Our UK supply chain, commitment to zero waste and 100% recyclable cardboard spool are just a few of the ways we reduce environmental impact. We also offer print waste recycling and a spool return program.
  • | 3DTOMORROW | It’s in the name, we’re always thinking of the future. Keep your eyes peeled for our new bio-based developments. BUT, for now, we hope you enjoy your UK PLA!

Description

For 3DTomorrow Wood PLA we had two goals:

1. Maximise Wood-like appearance

2. Maximise printability (easy to print)

It happens that wood-like appearance and easy to print are two descriptions that don’t come easily… We think we have struck the perfect balance in 3DTomorrow Wood PLA, what do you think?

Our Wood PLA, unlike most filament on the market, is made here in the UK. Actually, prioritising UK manufacture is very important for us, so we can support British industry, ensure fair wages, have greater control over our products and reduce transportation in our supply chain.

Transportation leads on to another important focus for us, environmental impact. Quite frankly, this should be a major consideration for every company, but quite often it ends up being an unscrupulous marketing ploy. Have you ever used a recycled PLA and thought ‘wow this is as good if not better than what I’ve used before? We have! AND then later discovered it was pure PLA! This sort of deception was one of the main reasons we set up 3DTomorrow filament.

Unlike other wood filaments on the market (that are overly brittle or contain no real wood), our Wood PLA combines wood particles from different sources to create a real showstopper!

It’s no secret that we’re not a huge brand or a household name (yet), so a purchase will be supporting a growing business and give you the chance to shape our future. Fear not, we are in it for the long haul. Our founder turned his hobby into a business, and that’s a strong a foundation as any. We’d love you to be part of our journey.

If you’re still not convinced and feel yourself slipping towards that budget buy, just remember that there is always a reason why something is cheap; be it material fillers, weak prints, dodgy tolerances, patchy colours, future inconsistencies, underpaid workers, or an unsustainable business model. So don’t buy compromise, trade up to 3DTomorrow filament.

  1. Matt Rayner (verified owner)

    I really like this wood PLA and have just ordered another roll, and also really like the overall focus on sustainability. I have used the first roll printing off Catan pieces from Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2525047 and it has come out very nicely, and takes acrylic paint better than regular PLA. Had some issue with stringing and occasionally a jammed filament feeder mechanism, but I think that is probably because I am still quite new to 3D Printing and my Adventurer 3. Depending on the piece being printed I find it can be quite tolerant printing at standard res rather than fine – fiddly pieces benefit from fine for sure, but larger pieces not so much – and to be honest the slight texture from the layers is not out of place too much on a wood-effect PLA print anyway giving a finish a little reminiscent of grain.

      Hi Matt, thank you for taking the time to leave a review! I’m really pleased you like the filament and would love to see your prints? We’ve just launched a new scheme (not yet publicised) to provide vouchers in exchange for good content we can use on our socials. So yes, feel free to email over any print photos 😀
