Good morning.  I just finished a job with Colorfabb Woodfill on my UM3.  I ran it with a hardcore 0.6, results were better than expected, good adhesion, excellent surface finish, sanded to smooth and accepted stain without any unexpected blotches.

 

Now, my prints were simple, no overhangs.  But so far, so good.

    I want to revive this thread, as I have a similar situation.

    I have a S5. Is there an official recommend material + print core?

     

    My goal is to print wood filament while working with students.
    We don't need super high details, similar to what is possible with touch PLA on a 0.4 core would be good. Importance is the robustness against clogging.

     

    Who has experience and can share?

    @ScienceDude you might find this thread of relevance.  I found woodfill slightly less prone to clogging than copperfill.

     

     

    @SandervG has, I believe, made a relevant comment when discussing fibre enhanced filaments that may well apply to wood fill, and that is that a lot of retractions may contribute to clogging as the fibres or particles can realign crossways to the flow inside the nozzle at the orifice.  I just had a job fail with that exact scenario, the first indication was intermittent extruder stalling and then layer quality degraded.

     

    I hope this is of some help..  Best of luck.

     

    Cheers

    Hi John!

     

    So I guess I will try with the 0.6 and the 0.4 nozzle and see where I end up.

    Thank you for your insights!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
