The wood material for 3D printing from Hackka is a PLA-based type of filament that almost smells and feels like wood. The different types of wood allow the manufacturer to produce this wide range of natural wood colors. The material is delivered on spools of up to 2.3kg and prints flawlessly even with conventional 0.4mm nozzles as the wood particles do not block the nozzle.
Characteristics of wood material for 3D printers:
- Feels and smells like wood
- Easily printable even at low temperatures (PLA)
- Low material curvatures/warping
- Partly biodegradable
- Preferably to print with > 0.4mm nozzle
- Best to cool after printing without UV influence
Different wood materials
In addition to the wood filament in this review, the Hackka Filament is also available in other wood colors:
If you are worried about nozzle size, you can confidently focus on other aspects of the Hackka wood filament for 3D printing at the time being. The standard nozzles are usually 0.4mm, such as for the Flashforge Finder. Before buying, however, you should look at the exact nozzle diameter of your 3D printer.
Interestingly, Hackka adorns itself with the low curvature (warping) of the wood material for 3D printing and that no heated printing plate is needed. However, these are the normal characteristics of PLA filament. What is surprising and difficult to verify is the indication of biodegradation of the filament.
Conclusion for the Hackka wood filament for 3D printing
The wooden material by Hackka is part of our standard repertoire of filaments. The price to performance ratio is very good and competes without any problems against other conventional material textures. It adds a lot of variety to your 3D printing experience when you have additional material types like wood or metal. This gives the printed objects more authenticity, variety and a real life feeling. Other materials which enhance your 3D printers results and their functionality are flexible and metallic materials.
