Wood filament allows you to print objects that both look and smell like wood when finished. We have seen LAYWOO-D3 invented by Kai Parthy and BambooFill filament developed by ColorFabb. Now, another filament manufactuer, FormFutura, has developed EasyWood Coconut, a mixture of 40% ground coconut particles with modified binding polymers.

EasyWood Coconut looks, feels and smells like tropical wood. According to FormFutura, its surface has clearly noticeable coconut particles which gives a very special finish and can be a perfect substitute for traditional tropical hardwood.

The new filament has a beautiful dark tropical brown colour. The company explains that EasyWood Coconut's low shrinkage factor makes it nearly warp-free and thus it does not require a heated print bed. If your printer is equipped with a heated print bed, Formfutura recommends to set your heat bed temperature to ± 35° to 60°C.

The Easywood filament is also resistant to (salt) water and has very low water absorption, and has similar thermal properties as its EasyFil PLA. The spool-wrapped EasyWood Coconut filament is available in both 1.75mm and 2.85mm filaments and compatible with most common desktop 3D printers on the market, such as Repraps, Ultimaker, Solidoodle, Makerbot, Up! etc.

The EasyWood Coconut filament (Dark Brown) is priced at 32.95 EUR Incl. Tax.

I wonder if these kinds of filaments (laywoo, bamboofill, etc) Are going to deteriorate due to the high PLA content. I don't consider PLA archival, so I wonder if 3D prints made from this will not last...

Should be "ground coconut" not "grinded coconut." Interesting idea and sure to bear fruit!
