That's a tricky print, but a pleasing result, but btw the "Printing Guidelines" link just takes you to the product page now.


Question: Would this be a good candidate for the BB print core?


Also, it would be awesome to have a way to leverage the way these kinds of filament react to temperature variations to produce grain effects. You can do that with post-processing but that's just flat layer-by-layer and the end result is an mdf/plywood effect rather than grain.

I've printed a number of parts using woodfill and copperfil.  I would not try this on a BB core.  Indeed, once you get to 0.4 and below on an AA core, the printer needs to be monitored for clogging.  I do like the results though!


The way solids are suspended in the filament makes both of them somewhat prone to clogging if your print involves retraction.  I have run them in a hardcore (AA) down to 0.25 nozzle, but that works for short duration prints only, after which I have to do both hot and cold pulls to clear things out.  I'm not sure it would be possible to clear out a BB nozzle without doing harm to it.


This thread is related, I hope this helps.



 Have fun
