Tips&Tricks

The thermal strength of Laywoo-D3 Flex filament is similar to PLA and can be printed between 175 and 250 °C. If you have a heated bed, set it at about 50 °C and print directly on Kapton tape.
Depending on the temperature at which Laywoo-D3 Flex filament is printed, it will take on a different shade of brown. This means that by intentionally varying the printing temperature, you can simulate a tree’s growth ring effect.
At 180 °C your Laywoo-D3 Flex prints will have a light colour and at 245 °C your print will become darker.
Darker prints (higher temperature) are more flexible than lighter prints (lower temperature).

TIP!
It is recommended to use a 0.5mm nozzle for the Laywoo-D3 Flex to stop clogging of the nozzle.

Due to all the different types of hot-end it's extremely difficult to give a temperature advice. Please consider our tips as a starting point to find the temperatures that work well in your setup. You may have to adjust the temperature settings slightly based on your type of printer.
