- excellent texture
I've tried this fillament to print like everyone a baby groot plant pot. it's tricky to find the right settings to avoid tons of stringing. I finished to use the pre-settings of my prusa slicer to use with the prusa mk3 and it printed perfectly.
The result is stunning and it looks and feels like real wood. You can sand it, paint it like wood without any primer.
i was little skeptic about that, but finally got a big surprize with that filament.
i recommend it 100% (Posted on 6/27/2019)
- Wonderful material
Wants to be printed with high flow rate, i.e. 0.8mm nozzle and >0.2mm layers. This is no problem because flow properties are amazing due to fibers. Temperature should be kept low, >200°C.
Post processing is amazing; can be handled like wood (sanding etc). Aceton will remove any sanding marks and provides a wonderful surface finish. (Posted on 3/15/2019)
- The closest filament to pine wood
I tried 4 different wood filaments before buying this one, nothing ever is compared to ColorFabb wood filament, which I found the closest filament in the market today to pine wood, and it does smell like wood when printing. I love it and will only buy this wood filament again.
It was challenging though to have the first layer stick to the platform, but I increased heatbed temp to 70, made the nozzle as close as possible to the platform and reduced first layer speed to 20mm/s and things went just perfect.
Good job ColorFabb!

- In love with it
When we started printing it we didn't realise how easy it is to print and how gorgeous are the results. We felt in love with this filament. Thanks to colorFabb for producing this really great stuff! :D (Posted on 11/3/2016)
- Awesome material if you follow the how-to
I have used many spools of woodfil now, and it gives consistent results once you know how to use it. It smells great too.
My UM2 settings:
200µm layer and 50mm/s, 200°C hot end; 50°C build plate.
Does leave burnt residue if left in a hot nozzle. Keep it moving when hot. (Posted on 10/31/2016)
- Geat filament.
I absolutely love the idea of it, and it looks and smells great, really.
But its a very tricky filament to use, i would highly recomend reading ALOT before buying or printing with this filament.
Otherwise, you will try print it with the same settings and method used for PLA, wich you will find out will not work too good. So instead of re-inventing the wheel, just read this.
I can't degrade the filament for being tricky to use, or just "differant" to use. The restults are amazing, and i love the idea, and so does the people that recieve my prints. 5/5 (Posted on 7/11/2015)
- My new favourite filament
Printed out some coasters with our company branding on, they look fantastic. Really high quality, very few faults and extrudes beautifully at 200°C. (Posted on 6/11/2015)
All colorFabb 3d printing filaments are produced in our own production facility, situated in the Netherlands. Since no external parties are involved in the making of colorFabb filament we can ensure consistent quality on every order.
Excellent diameter tolerance
An important machine in our production are the laser measurement systems used to check the diameter of our filament real time during production. It’s measured over 1000 times per second and helps us guarantee that each spool of colorFabb 3d printing filament produced within tolerance. We can guarantee 0,05mm +/- on both 2,85mm and 1,75mm colorFabb 3d printing filament, which means you can rest assured that your printer is extruding the exact amount of material.
Within minutes of production a spool of colorFabb 3d printing filament is sealed airtight with a double barrier foil. To go the extra mile, we’ll also seal the fancy cardboard box that we use to ship our product. You can make sure colorFabb 3d printing filament is fresh and ready for 3d printing when you’re done unboxing.
The colorFabb testlab features a wide range of popular 3d printers. We’re continuously testing on our 3d printers to keep checking the quality of the materials we produce and to develop exciting new materials for the maker community. If your not sure how to print with our materials on your 3d printer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The following printers are used in our lab:
- Ultimaker Original
- Ultimaker Original Dual Extrusion
- Ultimaker 2
- Makerbot Replicator 2s
- Delta Tower (E3D hot-end)
- Felix 20
- Leapfrog Creator
- Mass Portal Pharaoh ED
- Prusa i3 HEPHESTOS

ColorFabb was founded as a brand of Helian Polymers, a sister company of Peter Holland which have been active in the master batch and additives for the plastics processing industry. Our knowhow, network and partnerships is driving material innovations and quality. You can expect colorFabb to keep on developing interesting new materials, which will be tested on a variety of printers to make sure it’ll get the job done.
At colorFabb we have a well equipped 3d printing studio with a lot of popular 3d printers. We know our materials will give you excellent results and to help you get these results here are tips and trick for using colorFabb 3d printing filament.
Adviced 3d printing temperature:
Adviced 3d print speed:
40 - 100 mm/s
Advised Heated bed (if you have one, not strictly necessary)
TIP! For stronger prints and better reliability you can increase flow rate with about 0-10%. This will cause the filament to keep going through the hot zone at a steady pace. Also check out our learn.colorfabb.com website for more information and slicer profiles regarding woodFill.
Our PLA/PHA compound performs well on both heated and non-heated build platforms. For those users printing on a cold build platform we advise applying masking tape to the build area. The rough surface of the tape will provide enough adhesion for the first layer to stick and print almost without any warping.
Users using heated build platforms have quite a few options these days. The usual suspects are glass and aluminum build plates. For directly printing on glass or aluminum we advice user to apply glue-stick. A very thin layer will be sufficient to keep your print nicely in place. Another method is dissolving wood glue in water, you the consistency of the substance can be quite thin, a bit like milk. By applying just a few drops and smearing this out before you start heating the built plate will create a very thing layer which holds the woodFill down very well. If applying this method, be careful that you don’t get your electronics wet.
Another method that works well with colorFabb woodFill is polyimide tape, or Kapton tape. This tape is available as a very narrow strip or very wide strips which allow you to cover the build plate in one go. When the tape is applied correctly it can last for months.
TIP! Take your time leveling the bed and adjusting the the gap between 3d printer nozzle and build plate. A perfect first layer will is very important, especially for 3d prints with a large bottom layer. Having the nozzle set to close to the build plate will cause a pressure build up and as a result back flow in most hot ends.
TIP! PLA/PHA has very minimal warping tendencies, however if your printing parts which take up the maximum of you buildspace you might see some warping. If it’s very important that your part is perfectly flat than we suggest to turn down the fan that is cooling your part. This allows the material to slowly get rid of heat without warping. After a few centimeters you can turn on the cooling if the part needs it.
