The colorFabb testlab features a wide range of popular 3D printers. colorFabb continuously test their products on a range of 3D printers to check the quality of the materials produced and to develop exciting new materials.
The following printers are used in the colorFabb lab: Ultimaker Original, Ultimaker Original Dual Extrusion, Ultimaker 2, Makerbot Replicator 2, Delta Tower (E3D hot-end), Felix 20, Leapfrog Creator, BEETHEFIRST. As such, colorFabb woodFill can be used for most commercially available leading brands 3D FDM/FFF printers. Please check your specific printer set up, specification and operation of your 3D printer for compatibility.
woodFill is likely to require some adjustment to your 3D printer settings to achieve the best results. For example, it is recommended to increase the flow rate with approximately 0-10%. This will allow the filament to keep passing through the hot zone at a steady pace.
No, a heated bed is not necessary for printing in woodFill. Should you wish to use a heated bed, the recommended platform temperature is 50 - 60°C.
colorFabb use laser measurement systems to check the diameter of their filament real time during production. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and helps guarantee that each spool of colorFabb 3D printing filament is produced within tolerance. colorFabb can guarantee 0.05mm +/- on both 2.85mm and 1.75mm colorFabb 3D printing filament.
