PrimaSELECT™WOOD is an outstanding and beautiful material – it smells like wood, looks like wood and feels like wood so surely it´s wood right? The answer is – almost. PrimaSELECT™WOOD is based on our PrimaSELECT™PLA formula and has all of the benefits that PrimaSELECT™PLA has but in the formula we have added 35-40 % wood and that is what gives PrimaSELECT™WOOD its unique properties.

PrimaSELECT WOOD has a wood like appearance when the print is done. PrimaSELECT WOOD also comes in a range of beautiful and vivid colors that are very "nature like" with a nice appearance.
PrimaSELECT WOOD feels a bit softer to the touch than ordinary WOOD materials, it´s also more pliable which makes it perfect for all printers including printers with a Bowden set up.
Due to the very low shrinkage and the fact that you don´t need a heated bed PrimaSELECT WOOD is very easy to use in all FDM/FFF printers. Warping is not a factor you have to consider if you use PrimaSELECT WOOD and it will also not deform when your prints are done which is common among cheaper materials. If your printer is equipped with a heated bed we recommend that you use a temperature setting of 40-60°C.
For best results we recommend that you use PrimaSELECT WOOD with a > 0,4mm nozzle
With a fine grit piece of sand paper you can get an even more beautiful surface finish on your print.
PrimaSELECT WOOD sticks on BuildTak or glass plate coated with adhesive spray or glue stick.
PrimaSELECT WOOD is reeled on a transparent spool with 500 g of high quality filament. It´s packed in a sturdy box and packed with silica gel to avoid moister.
PrimaSELECT WOOD are available in diameter sizes of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm.
Our state of the art factory is equipped with the latest in laser measuring technology to ensure that you will receive a spool of filament with a very tight diameter and roundness tolerance. This in turn makes for a filament that is compatible with most common printers on the market today.
