Description

What is it about natural wood that makes people love it so much? Some say it is because wood makes a room feel warm and cozy, some say it looks sophisticated. Others say that wood grain reconnects us with the natural world. Still others say that wood is a great choice because it fits into pretty much any design aesthetic. No matter the reason, the fact is that natural wood is a popular choice for many different rooms.

You might think that there is no way to recreate that look and texture in 3D printed objects, but there is. This filament–light yellow-brown with flecks of black, gray, and white–recreates traditional unfinished wood beautifully.

Obviously, then, there are a ton of different uses for this HTPLA. Make a stunning piece of wooden furniture, a log cabin, drawers, doors, windowpanes, and so much more. And of course, may people prefer to make traditional-shaped pots and just show off this unique and wonderful color.

The only downfall? Pine scent is not included.

Printing

This natural-looking filament prints just like regular PLA. There are no abrasive fillers to excessively wear out your nozzle. There are also no large particles that will lead to jams.

Heat Treating

This Protopasta HTPLA can be heat treated through baking, which is great news if you need improved heat resistance compared to normal PLA. To heat treat, the manufacturer suggests a temperature of 225°F with convection for the best results. The heat treating is complete once the print goes from translucent to opaque with reduced gloss.

It is important to realize that when you heat treat, printed parts will get “floppy” before firming up. To keep your planter looking its best, provide supports and bake on a non-radiating surface, like glass or ceramic.

Also, please note that some shrinking may occur if you decide to heat treat this product.

Due to variations in computer monitors, actual colors may vary from what you see on your screen.
