Material-Details: Wood Datasheet

Wood is one of our special materials.
As only professional 3D printing service worldwide, we offer the printing in this special material in the FDM process.
Wood is made of real wood grips which were solved in nylon material.
one prints these if he gets an evenly Brown part.
A special construction method we can "give back" to the wood its grain.
This produces in Layer direction different dark layers, so your component looks as if it was made of laminated wood..
These layers always run horizontally!

Advantages & disadvantages


  • Looks like wood
  • Smells pleasant upon heating.
  • Very good haptic feel.
  • Remains resilient and flexible
  • Almost free "warping" (from distortion)


  • Low resolution by FDM pressure
  • No technical data available
  • Flammable!

Price calculation

  • 1,06 € / cm³ used material at 0,2 mm Layer (Standart).
  • 2,12 € /cm³ used material at 0,1 mm layer thickness.
  • It's just the Material calculated that is actually consumed in the component.

Typical usage

Wood is used when a component in a wood look is needed, which should be stable.
We were allowed to make already a shoe (Pumps) for the C & A Design challenge made of this material.
This was tolerable and was gone.
Another advantage of this material is that the feel is very soft and the material is not "cold"


Wood is produced in the so-called FDM procedure.
FDM meaning is "Fused deposition modeling".
FDM is one of the simpler procedures of 3D printing.Machined components are
visible layers (coatings) on. The advantage of this technology is the pressure in a
high variation of materials and the direct use of technical
Plastics. The material is genuinely applied and thus differs
to most other procedures, with materials with approximate work properties
. Another advantage is the possibility of closed cavities.
FDM is not appropriate for small parts, because they overheat.

The procedure:
The model is broken down into layers of 0.1 0.2 mm.
Now, a plastic wire is pressed through a heating nozzle and a viscous
Zustand versetzt. A CNC-controlled print head now moves from the contour of the component
and thereby contributes to the desired thickness.
Washable support structures of alcohol prevent hanging of overhangs.

Additionnal information

  • ,as all FDM plastics are not approved for direct contact with food.
  • Components made of wood can very well be served and cut since the coloring is continuously.

The surface of your part is determined by the technology and the chosen material. Therefore, we offer several post-processing steps. This affects the cost but also the quality of a model.

The natural surface of Wood is perfect if you want your model just as functional or illustrative prototype. So you'll be able to see the material and method using the surface as we do nothing more than to print your part to remove the insulators and ship it to you.


Available colors:


Grinding and sandblasting (Polishing)

.Polished sandstone models have no high-gloss finish. You have a slightly rough but very smoothed surface.
All parts are sanded by hand and then sandblasted. For this reason, it may be that your part is subsequently rejected if it is not to edit by hand.

What is to be observed on polished models::

  • Models can only be polished from a minimum dimensions of 10x10x10 mm.
  • Only accessible by hand areas are polished.
  • Post processing will take on all surfaces around 0.2 mm materail. Plan something extra wall thickness.
  • Small details can disappear during this process.
  • The polishing service requires 2 extra Working days to the indicated delivery time.
  • Price: Polishing costs 30% of the part price as extra charge.

Painted models

Painted 3D printing


Of course you can also paint 3D models from wood.
Here, the quality and RAL color can be selected. The basic version of the painting is a simple "spray paint"..
This means that is your part lightly sanded and then painted. Construction stages and the similar are still easily recognizable.
The highest quality is the quality in premium (car paint). This "Polishing" must be booked with. This "Polishing" must be booked with.
Your part is sanded, polished, filled, wet sanded and painted.

  • need a minimum dimension of 10 x 10 x 10 mm
  • Price: 30% of the part price for base coating. For additional premium polishing service (+30%).
  • In painting 2 Working days must be set extra(included).
