LAYWOO-D3 is a wood-based 3D printing filament invented by Kai Parthy and is designed for the RepRap and similar machines. It is a wood/polymer composite - the filament contains 40% recycled wood and harmless binding polymers. The material has similar thermal durability as PLA and can be printed between 175°C and 250°C.
After printing it looks and smells like wood and can also be handled like wood. Depending on the temperature you can even print wooden-like objects with annual rings. At 180°C, the prints has a light color, at 245°C it becomes darker. Afterwards the printed objects can be cut, grinded or painted.
Features of LAYWOO-D3 filament:
- 40% recycled wood
- very little warp
- Stick very well on the print bed
- Can be grinded, sanded and painted
- Excellent flow properties
- Similar thermal durability as PLA
LAYWOO-D3 filament is sold in coils of 250 grams (0.55lbs) and it comes in both 1.75mm and 3mm diameter.

I am 16 years old, and I am doing a science report about printable wood. Can you pleas tell me how it is made? Do you just cut some blokes of wood, and throw it in a wood chipper till it becomes dust, then what do you use to glue it together? Is that kinda right? Pleas explain so I can try to make my own for my class, thanks.

These suppliers are only importers? Or strictly manufacturers? I'm looking for manufacturer of laywood, not importer. Can someone give me any info about it?
