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

(4 customer reviews)

£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.

    I love this filament. The detail is amazing and it’s easy to print with. I use it for all projects that have a lot of detail

    Beautiful material. A lot better value than say Timberfill, comparable quality. Please note this material is slightly lighter than anything Timberfill has, almost like an untreated pine effect. I may do some experiments with different oils or varnishes to see the effect, although I need to consider how this would effect recyclability, as I'd like my designs to be fully recyclable. I print at 30mm/s 0.6mm layer heights with a hardened steel 1mm nozzle at 205deg nozzle, 60deg bed on a Creality Ender 5 Plus. The service and delivery time is incredible, absolute top marks. I love the attention to recyclability and sustainability 3D tomorrow has with everything they do, by controlling their supply chain diligently. Highly recommended!

    Thank you for the review Aiden, really great to hear about your positive experience. I have heard from some users that it does take stain reasonably well, but yes that would limit our ability to take the material back in our recycling scheme. Perhaps we just need to add some more wood colours!

    This was my first wood filament. I bought a e3d 0.6mm hardened steel nozzle specifically for this. It worked absolutely perfectly. I printed my leg extenders for my IKEA lack enclosure using this filament. Even at 25% infill and 3 wall layers, this feels as strong as my PETG filaments. When I run out, I will defiantly buy another reel! I also used this filament on my 1.4mm bondtech CHT nozzle. My room smelt like a sawmill... The print came out great as well with that nozzle but i don't think it would last long as it's not designed for abrasive materials.

    What a great review, thanks Marc! Really pleased to hear you've had some excellent results, if you're on social media would love to see your prints, we're @3DTomorrow on insta, facebook and twitter. The 1.4 CHT nozzle must have been a fun combination with the wood, we've got a range of those nozzles on the way to test with our materials.

    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 :D Happy Printing
