3D Printing With Wood

Inventor Kai Parthy has spent the last year developing what he calls LAYWOO-D3; a RepRap compatible FDM filament made from a recycled wood and polymer composite.

The filament allows printers to create a tree ring effect by changing the temperature between 175°C and 250°C.

According to Parthy the finished product “looks like wood and smells like wood!”
