colorFabb Wood filament - UM2 settings?

Recommended Posts

Use the settings they give on the website linked by Personal Drones.

I recommend to keep a good speed and avoid slowing down the print (put minimum layer time to 0). if the filament stays in the nozzle to long it will clog.

I found that i reduced clogs by disabling retractions also (or avoid heavy retractions)

Material flow 120-140%

keep it flowing, turn off retraction. 210C/60 works well. 230 darkens it!

Standard nozzle will be clogged with woodfill. Fine may work, anyone tried?

Custom Block and 080 nozzle works super. Layers are not well visible with

wood fill. It is a gratifying material with a nice "odeur"..!

Seems Woofill corse may work with 040 nozzle:

"Woodfill fine can be printed with standard 0.4mm Nozzles, but our WoodFill coarse needs a special 0.8mm nozzle to allow the bigger wood particles to pass through. If you’re 3d printer can switch nozzles easily then we definitely recommend trying to print with a bigger nozzle anyways, it is awesome!"

Woodfill fine works with the standard nozzle... more often than not...;)

"keep it flowing" is the key - indeed.

Any news about the progress of the next batch of custom blocks...? (i'm still curious...impatiently - i know...)

You can't disable retractions by setting them to zero. What setting did you use? The correct option to disable it it's by changing the tick of retraction to not blue:

This one it's 'on' uncheck retracttion to disable them. There's no '0'

Also make sure you don't have 'force retractions between layer change' (something alike) on the last tap.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
