3D Printed Materials: Wood

1---Wood-block

As reported by Design News, “you can 3D print with wood filaments right now, using a choice of filament colors and widths.”

“The materials are usually a combination of wood with some type of polymer binding ingredient, and there’s a range of price and quality.”

Design News has a slideshow detailing all of the different options: “Objects made from these materials also vary in aesthetic appeal, depending on design, materials, and finishing processes.  Some look like plastic, some resemble low-grade, rough-cut lumber.  Others are stunningly beautiful, high-end art objects made by architectural design firms that look just like the real thing.”
