FilaFab Additive Manufacturing in Material Science
Wood dust was mixed in the hopper with PLA pellets to produce a true wood PLA filament. A variety of mixes and wood types were tried yielding great results.
Nylon 66 and metal fillings were pre-compounded into pellets. The filament extruded was heavy and so needed extra support before winding. This was easily achieved by adding extra support columns to the FilaFab peripheral rail.
