Printing in wood

Wed May 20, 2020 9:51 am

Please can someone advise me on printing wood Filament.

I was told by the lovely people from Ice filaments to lower my Extrusion multiplier.
If the nozzle diameter is 0.6... should the Extrusion multiplier be 0.6 too?

Here are my wood settings so far - using S3D-

Retraction Distance: 0.00

Default Printing Speed: 1200.0 mm/min

Extruder Temperature: 215

Primary Layer Height: 0.2400 mm

Retraction Vertical Lift: 1.00 mm

Nozzle Diameter: 0.6 Micro Swiss -Resistant Nozzle

Printer: FlashForge Guider 2

After a few hundred layers the filament stops feeding through, And clogs the nozzle... Before then its absolutely fine.

Wood filament is pla with some wood fibers mixed in. Configure your Z offset, Extrusion multiplier, and filament diameter just like you would when calibrating for any new roll of material or new nozzle. My setting have nothing to do with your settings.
