PolyWood is a filament that mimics wood, without actually containing wood, so you can easily print it without risking a clogged nozzle.
Wood without junk
All current Wood filaments that are available are based on wood-polymer composite (which is a mixture of polymers and powder of wood chips). With PolyWood, Polymaker really changed its filament. The filament no longer contains wood chips, but is based on a unique foam technology, which results in a material with exactly the same structure as wood. The result? Perfect prints without the risk of things getting stuck.
Polywood is the first filament that uses the foam technology. The density of PolyWood is on average 0.8 g/cm3, which is 35-40% lighter than regular PLA. This means that it is better able to mimic the lightweight structure of natural wood. This can lead to interesting properties and potential applications such as lightweight structures, membranes, and even watertight models, thanks to the great finishing properties.
