How to get a perfect print without retractions for Woodfill FIlament

Recommended Posts


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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
