  • While other Woodfills are unpredictable and clog easily due to oversized wood particles, rigid.ink Mountain Pine Woodfill has a strict particle size restriction, ensuring smooth flow printing.
  • Get the detail you need with crisp, accurate finishes and easy post-print finishing. Sands and polishes like a dream.
  • Unlike some extremely brittle Woodfills, rigid.ink Mountain Pine is relatively durable. Giving your prints an excellent lifespan.
  • It’s the easiest to print Woodfill you’ve ever used. Like PLA with some small considerations (see advised settings).
  • Prints in a medium Mountain Pine shade, will darken at higher temperatures to adjust shading. Works great with velocity painting or other outer layer slicer effects.

Description

You already know 3D printing can be enough hassle, without added complications.

That’s why adding sawdust to 3D filaments producing Woodfill has always been a big no-no of ours.

Some cheaper manufactures use sawdust to bulk out materials to save money, and it causes a world of problems, including frequent nozzle blockages and terrible finish qualities.

And that’s exactly why traditional Woodfills can be a printing nightmare. They’re typically tricky to print, provide weak crumbly prints and burn easily in the nozzle. Who wants more hassle 3D printing only for a less desirable print?

We knew there had to be a better way. And we thought Woodfill had the potential to be so much more. Afterall, the potential to create beautifully finished prints that look like real carved Wooden ornaments was too tempting to resist.

It just needed to be done the right way.

Why the wait?

That’s why here at rigid.ink, we’ve been secretly testing our variation of Woodfill for months. Swapping out the raw materials, and optimizing the formula several times. We wanted to take all the time to get it right, so you didn’t waste yours forever restarting prints and stripping down nozzles.
The biggest challenge was finding a consistent supply of cured pine particles where no single wood particle ever exceeded 80 microns in diameter (1/5th of a standard 0.4mm Nozzle) to ensure it won’t block your nozzle.

Eventually we managed it.

Next was tuning the right ratio to combine with our PLA to get the finish we wanted, while maintaining that leading reliability standard our customers expect of us. Finally we added a small quantity of the same impact modifier used with our PLA Plus to create a durable, usable material suitable for end-use prints.
Now you can have the best of both (all) worlds, beautiful Wood-effect prints that are strong compared with other woodfills, can be easily sanded and polished if required and won’t cause a printer breakdown.

While we’ve never had a problem printing our Mountain Pine Woodfill with a 0.4mm Nozzle, we do recommend (as with all large-particle based filaments) to print with a 0.5mm Nozzle as standard procedure.

Can’t wait to craft exquisite wooden prints and see what all the fuss is about?

Guide Settings
Printing Temperature: Start at 195°C
Bed Temperature: None-45°C
Bed Adhesion: PLA-compatible bed adhesives - glue-stick, magigoo
Print Speed: 20-50 mm/s (higher speeds may need slightly hotter printing temp)
Cooling Fans: Off then 100% from layer two onwards
Ideal build chamber: None, remove all cover and doors
Layer height: 0.12mm or greater. (Usually 50% of nozzle diameter)
Retraction: May need to be higher than standard PLA, consider using coasting a short distance if available.
Retraction speed: Be careful with retraction speeds, especially if using a bowden rig as the filament may snap in the tube. 20-30mm/s works well.
Extrusion multiplier:Effect dependent. x1.0-1.05. x0.95 can give lighter more detailed prints, but they can also be very fragile.
Layer adhesion: Try increasing the extrusion width up to around 130% of nozzle diameter or more if needed.

Good ventilation is essential and do not leave print unattended.

A bit brittle but very nice

Feels just like wood and looks like it but be careful it’s quite brittle.

Handle with care

This is my first Rigid ink woodfill sample and my second time using a wood pla.
With having just a sample, I had fun trying to wind this onto an empty spool. The filament feels like a diamond file and snaps easier than other pla.
I managed to load the filament, after breaking it twice before it reached the nozzle,
I was able to print using my normal pla settings without having any problems.. A little tweaking should get better results.

Lovely smell, great feel, brittle.

gorgeous smell when printing, feels like im in a woodworkers shop. the texture of the filament is quite rough, but when printed is remarkably smooth. Sanding is simple, and feels quite similar to sanding MDF and makes the smell even more apparent.

be careful with Bowden systems though, this filament is quite brittle, i had two pieces of my sample break off in the bowden tube. remove as much of thw twists and turns as possible from your end, any torque on the filament end and it'll just snap.

a bit brittle and weak, but looks nice

I'll start by saying I haven't used any other wood fill type products, so take this as face value vs your more standard ABS/PLA/PETG type filaments.

The test print in the picture was at 1.2x width, on a .6 nozzle, with a .2 layer height, 2 outer shells, and 20% infill.

The first problem is that a 10m sample, with no spool, sitting with plenty of space to move, snapped twice during a 1-hour print. The breakpoints were both at the loading mechanism for the Bowden tube, if a 10m run can't load, I'd hate to try using a spool of this stuff.

I gave up loading the filament back in and just decided to remove the print, just using my fingers to remove the print from the bed crushed it (see the middle segment in my picture). To test a bit more I tried to break a piece off with my thumb, it gave pretty quickly (see the rightmost section).

Before I crushed it, I can say it did look the part! and had a great finish, perhaps described as a slightly more textured MDF?

Perhaps I'm just spoilt with Rigid Inks PLA (genuinely the best I've used) but this didn't seem up to a usable standard for anything other than decorative items.
