Here’s an idea for all the left over supports, wipe towers, rafts and prints that fail:
Use caution, and parental supervision.
Not recommended for any other kinds of filament (example: ABS, Polyester, etc).
PLA Filament vs WoodFill Filament
Question: Which is stronger, PLA Filament or WoodFill Filament?
Hypothesis: It is predicted that the PLA Filament will break before the WoodFill Filament.
Materials: PLA Filament, WoodFill Filament, Scanner, Computer, 3D Printer, and weights
Procedure: 1. Get scanned, 2. Fix Scan, 3. Load filament, 4. Print design in PLA Filament and in WoodFill Filament, 5. Remove and clean the model from the printer, 6. Put weights on models until they break.
Analysis: PLA Filament broke at 55 pounds. WoodFill Filament broke at 5 pounds. Both broke in the same spot –the thinnest part of the model. This experiment demonstrates that PLA Filament is stronger than WoodFill Filament. These results are opposite of the initial hypothesis.
