How to get a perfect print without retractions for Woodfill FIlament

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to get a perfect print without retractions for Woodfill FIlament


I am using Ultimaker 2 and used the woodfill profiles as suggested by the previous posts here in the community. But still, I am not able to get the perfect.  Please can you help me in getting a perfect print without any retraction errors. This print is a part of my project and I need to have the perfect print.

Thank you.18554003_1424074787614955_1068568828_o.thumb.jpg.9ea1dd8ec2be67da39015a9438380a08.jpg

    Change the model, increase combing distance.

    Also. Print slower, much cooler, so it drips less. And hope it doesn't clog.


    Change the filament to other that doesn't break under retractions? Polymax fakewood is quite less drippy. Also eumakers wood is very good, and is actually wood.

    Or, use a better feeder that allows any number of retractions (bondtech) or a decent amount like a mk7 mk8 bolt.

    Anyhow, wood, drips. And when the flow stops it can clog.

    I suppose other had other experiences with clasical wood. I will never print again with colorfabb wood or formfutura woods. For me eumakers wood is amazing, but I think the actual manufacturer is other company from italy.
