A rough or smooth surface is possible during one printing, and it can be tooled after printing with a saw and sander. The surface can be stained and painted.

The printing temperature can range from around 180 degrees Celsius for a bright color to 245 degrees Celsius for a dark wooden color. When the temperature increases, it also increases the "grain" of the wood tone. It prints well on aluminum, acrylic, glass, and tape, and it doesn't require a heat bed.

The material has no warping tendencies.

This filament is extremely sensitive to lower temperatures (60 degrees ...
