This new filament allows to print wood polymer composite (wpc) objects with annual rings - and that without warp !
- zero warp
- rough or smooth surface possible during one print
- paintable-able, grindable - printable tree-rings
- print temp: from 185°C bright to 230°C dark appearence, stics well on print bed, no heated bed necessary
