Frequently Asked Questions About PolyWood™ Filament
What sets PolyWood™ apart from other wood-like filaments?
PolyWood™ is a unique filament that imitates wood without containing any wood particles, eliminating common issues like clogging. It utilizes Polymaker's Stabilized Foaming™ technology to create a light structure with a natural matte finish, providing both the appearance and texture of wood while ensuring smooth print flow.
Can I expect PolyWood™ to be as durable as real wood?
While PolyWood™ is designed to mimic the look and feel of wood, it has its own set of mechanical properties. It's ideal for aesthetic models and non-load-bearing applications, offering excellent stability and a detailed wood-like texture.
Does PolyWood™ require special storage conditions?
To maintain optimal print quality, PolyWood™ should be stored in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. For best results, keep the filament in a sealed container with a desiccant, such as the PolyBox™, to minimize moisture absorption.
Will PolyWood™ work with my 3D printer?
PolyWood™ is compatible with a wide range of 3D printers. However, it's always recommended to check the filament diameter and printing temperature range against your printer's specifications for best results.
How does PolyWood™ handle moisture?
PolyWood™, like other PLA-based filaments, can absorb moisture from the air, which may affect print quality. If the filament becomes brittle or you hear popping sounds during printing, drying the filament in a convection oven at 55˚C for up to 6 hours can restore its condition.
What are the recommended printing settings for PolyWood™?
For the best experience with PolyWood™, use a nozzle temperature between 190°C and 210°C, a build plate temperature of 25°C to 60°C, and a printing speed of 30 mm/s to 50 mm/s. The cooling fan should be turned on for better layer solidification.
Is PolyWood™ suitable for outdoor applications?
PolyWood™ is not inherently weather-resistant and is best suited for indoor use. However, it offers excellent UV stability compared to other PLA-based filaments, which can be beneficial for some outdoor applications with additional treatment.
