LAYWOO D3 Flex by Kai Parthy

Kai Parthy has developed an elastic version of his remarkable wood-like filament.

Product information




German 3D printing material inventor Kai Parthy has released the flexible version of LAYWOO-D3, a wood-like filament first introduced back in September 2012.

Depending on the printing temperature, you can achieve darker and lighter layers, mimicking the tree ring effect of natural wood. By adding some flexibilizers, Kai has developed an elastic version called LAYWOOD-FLEX, which is bendable like some woods found in nature. The new filament has a high elasticity, which is not rubber-like, but enough bendable to print undestroyable objects.


The thermoplastic polymer-composite, made from harmless ingredients, has the following features:

  • the warp effect is minimal and tends to zero
  • rough or smoother surface adjustable by flow
  • printable tree-rings (190 to 255°C) depending on print-speed – bright: 190 up to 225, darker starting at 225 to 250, faster speed > higher temp necessary
  • rough or smoother surface adjustable by flow
  • contains ~ 35 % recycled wood, harmless binders made by co-polyesters
  • stick well on ABS-paint at cold plattform or blue tape
  • 50°C plattform and you may print directly on capton-tape
  • nozzle: 0.5 mm
  • diameter: 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm filament
