NEW PRODUCT – PLA/PHA bambooFill for 3D Printers – 1.75mm Diameter – 600g


Having a 3D printer without filament is sort of like having a regular printer without paper or ink.  And while a lot of printers come with some filament there’s a good chance you’ve been printing up a storm and need something new.  That’s why we’ve started carrying a complete line of 3D printing filament in a variety of colors!

This PLA/PHA bambooFill blend 1.75mm 600g spool from colorFabb is a great material for 3D printers. This amazing one of a kind filament will allow you to print with actual recycled bamboo at home! Your prints will look absolutely amazing and your 3d printer cave will smell like a woodshop!

Tips: Start out with a bit rougher layers, 0.2 – 0.27mm (for 0.4mm nozzle) this will ensure that you’re printing with a decent amount of material flow. This is important because it will make sure the material isn’t spending too much time in the hot-zone of the 3D printer, which will degrade the polymer.

This filament has been tested successfully on a wide variety of printers, working well on both heated and non-heated build platforms. For those users printing on a cold build platform colorFabb advises applying blue painter’s tape to the build area. For heated build platforms colorFabb used a temperature of 55-60°C which will keep the print sticking to the platform. It can be printed straight on glass or with a bit of gluestick applied to it. They’ve also printed it succesfully on kapton tape with the same temperature settings. Testing showed reliable results using the all metal hot-ends, such as the E3D and the Makerbot Replicator 2 hotend. Hotends which use a teflon isolator coupler can generate adhesion to the bamboo filament possibly leading to clogs and is there for not recommended for novice users yet.

It’s always a good idea to check what diameter and filament type your printers can handle before purchasing!
