BAMBOO Filament

Introduction

3D printing filaments with bamboo superpowers are composites. Composite 3D Printing filaments are a mixture of a carrier polymer (like PLA or ABS) and an additive that alters or enhances the 3D filaments aesthetic and physical properties.

Using a carrier polymer that can be easily printed, like PLA, means that some of the properties of the additives which could not normally be easily 3D printed can be enjoyed.

The ratio of carrier polymer to additive will vary between manufacturers. An important consideration when selecting a composite 3D printing filament is that the higher the percentage of additive, the more abrasive the filament will be. This can lead to damaging the nozzle of your 3D printer. For high ratio composites this can only be avoided using a hardened nozzle.

Bamboo composite filaments combine the natural aesthetic finish of bamboo with 3D printing to create attractive final products.
