Kai Parthy, inventor of Laywoo-D3 wood filament has just released a new filament, LAYBRICK, a rough filament that can be used to print large architecture models or landscapes.
The material was lately shown by Kai Parthy at Fabcon Fair in Erfurt on 15th May 2013 during his lecture: “how to prevent warp and found meanwhile a material as Laywoo-D3”.
The Laybrick filament can create from smooth to very rough surface effect. When the temperature reaches to 195°C it could have a fairly realistic sandstone effect.
near zero warp
ideal for jumbo-printers
the objects are ink-able, grind-able
no heated bed needed
contains natural mineralic fillers (super-fine milled chalk) and
print temp: 165°C to 190°C to get smooth, higher
temperatures (210°C) will print rougher surfaces, fan requires to be on.
3.0 mm/ 1.75 mm available
Laybrick is right now produced by German company orbi-tech, a Cologne based filament-maker. “First trial-amounts are now ready in my ebay-shop, but dealers all over the world will also be supplied as I did with Laywoo-D3.” says Kai Parthy.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
