Watch for splinters!

I received my sample of laywoo-D3 wood filament today. To say this stuff is weird wood (hehe) be an understatement!  Unfortunately its only available in 3mm at present, and I can only print in 1.75mm.

Its very brittle, so its clear it would need quite a large reel. Or sold only as loose coil.

I plan on getting some for stock as soon as possible.

I got two samples, one is almost a chocolate brown, the other a tan. I believe the extruding temperature will effect the colour also. Higher temps result in darker wood.

Here's a pic..

UPDATE  I should have some 1.7mm samples very soon!
