AS you all know by now, we always strive for a specific set of criteria when order goods, and these criteria include being both good quality as well as affordability for hobbyists. This is why we simply love the CCTREE Brand, which is dedicated to producing great quality 3D Filaments at nearly unbeatable prices, so that Makers like you can enjoy 3D Printing in all kinds of different colours and polymers – without having to take a loan just to get a decent-sized spool.

This awesome CCTREE Wood Filament is manufactured to the standard 1.75mm 1kg spool size, but doesn’t carry the extreme cost that many Exotic Filaments often do. It is created from a base polymer of PLA, meaning that it’s relatively easy to print despite the unique qualities, and has been infused with around 30% wood particles so as to give a very novel surface finish. Once printed, this fantastic filament produces a surface that is very similar to balsa wood or light bamboo, but because this material can be 3D Printed, it can be crafted into extremely unique shapes and forms that would be nearly impossible or insanely difficult to produce with real wood.

If you’re eager to stretch your 3D Printing legs and try out some unique and novel filament that you’ve never tried before, but don’t want to make modifications just to enjoy an exotic filament, this CCTREE Wood Filament is an excellent place to start your journey into the world of weird, wonderful and Exotic Filaments.

Please Note: This factor is very unique to this particular filament, but it’s recommended to leave the print on the bed for half an hour to a full hour after printing. This will ensure enough time for the polymers to settle and the binding agents to take full effect, and will help prevent any unexpected  warping or other effects that could ruin a perfectly good print.

Helpful Tips for Printing with CCTREE Wood Filament:

When thinking about whether to experiment with Wood Filament or simply stick to the easy-printing PLA polymer, it’s important to note that this filament has been designed specifically to offer the awesome easy-printing style of PLA, while still offering a truly unique and exotic effect. However, despite being almost as easy to print with as PLA, there are a few small nuances that you should know before diving in. Fortunately, we’ve collected some of the top insights and tips that we’ve gained over the years, so that we can share them with you here and make your life as a 3D Maker as easy as possible. As such, the following are some great tips that everyone, both beginners and veterans, should take a look at in order to help improve print quality and get the results that you want from your wood filament prints:

  • Wood PLA Printing Tips – Nozzle Sizes: When comparing Wood Filaments to the plethora of exotics available nowadays, we’ve found that wood filament is actually one of the easier exotics to use, as it uses PLA as a polymer, with relatively inert additives that don’t do much to change the overall printing difficulty. However, one small but important modification that we do recommend is to use a nozzle that is around 0.5mm or larger. This is because the wood particles and fibres featured in wood filaments are quite a lot larger than the PLA molecules, and as such can cause clogs or jams if the nozzle is too small. Fortunately, just one step up from 0.4mm is enough to accommodate the wood particles or fibres, and you don’t need any sort of special abrasion resistance either, as both wood and plastic are relatively soft compared to brass, copper and other standard nozzle materials.

  • Wood PLA Printing Tips – Temperature & Retraction Settings: If there is anything that could be considered difficult when printing with wood filament, it’s the fact that, depending on your 3D Printer setup, you will have to experiment with temperatures and retraction settings before committing to serious designs. This is primarily due to the interactions between the PLA plastic modules, the wood particles and the binding agents used to help keep it all together, as well as the fact that most Hobbyist 3D Printers are designed and set up with the main focus on standard PLA. Fortunately, because Makers are awesome, there are loads of Calibration Prints on Thingiverse that you can use to fine-tune these settings before printing anything large or important, and these are all designed to use as little filament as possible while giving you maximum calibration results.

  • Wood PLA Printing Tips – Post Processing is Key: Although Wood Filament typically produces some pretty impressive results just by being printed with the right settings and fine-tunings, it’s hard to ignore the incredible effects that post-processing can offer for 3D Prints, and this is particularly prevalent with wood filament. As such, we would like to share a fantastic Wood Filament Post-Processing Guide from MatterHackers, which covers the various ways in which you can sand, coat, seal or even stain your wood prints, so that you can get the perfect aesthetics that no other filaments can provide for your projects.

 

Additional Resources for 3D Printing Wood Filament:

Of course, with wood filament being such an awesome material to work with – both during a print and afterwards, it’s not surprising that there is a wealth of information available online on how to get your prints looking good. However, from all of the resources we’ve found over time, we feel that the following are the most valuable and beneficial for both beginner and veteran wood printers alike:

  • This is a basic but valuable Wood Filament Resource Guide from Simplify3D, which gives a brief overview of what makes wood filament different, what you might need to change or modify to print it effectively, tips and tricks on improving print quality, as well as some sample prints that look great when produced in wood filaments.

  • The next resource is the amazing Wood Filament Post-Processing Guide from MatterHackers, which offers a good range of different post-processing tips, tricks and techniques for wood filament, with each of these giving a different look, feel or structural benefit. If you love post-processing your prints, then wood filament, coupled with this guide, is one of the most enjoyable materials that you can get.

  • And to top it all off, the following is just a great General Wood Filament Guide from All3DP, that covers all of the basics of wood filaments, what kinds of settings to focus on, how to troubleshoot your prints, and then touching on some post-processing at the end.

CCTREE is somewhat of a newcomer compared to brands like eSUN and Wanhao, but have certainly made big waves with their cost-effective PLA, ABS and Exotic 3D Printer Filaments.


They are a subsidiary of Shenzhen Prime Technology Company, and have chosen to partner with us as their South African suppliers, affording us the opportunity to supply South Africa with quality 3D filament at an even lower price than they offer on their official website.


Aside from the cost-efficiency of their 3D Printer Filaments, what we like most about CCTREE is that they share a similar business approach to our own here at DIYElectronics, with the belief that “When you buy from us, the sale is not complete when we ship your order, it is complete when you are totally satisfied.”
