3-14-18: Now updated with a new, improved formulation (v2)! We’ve reduced the particle size of the hemp material and increased the percentage. This will enable printing in a much wider variety of 3D printers. If you had a tricky time printing with Entwined in the past, the new formulation is much better. PLUS you can now anneal it after printing for increased heat resistance!
3D print with hemp filament! Entwined™ is 3D printing filament produced from USA-grown and processed industrial hemp. Industrial hemp crops require no herbicides, no pesticides and grow more densely compared to corn. Entwined™ hemp filament uses no dyes, allowing it to maintain a true natural brown. It’s almost iridescent in its ability to showcase different shades and densities within the same printed object. There’s a large amount of visible bio-fill, something you don’t get with standard PLA.
This is the third in a line of intriguing materials as part of a continuing partnership between 3D-Fuel and bio-composite company, c2renew. More distinctive bio-based products will be released soon.
Entwined™ hemp filament can be printed on any machine capable of printing with PLA using standard PLA settings.
Entwined™ prints well at 180-210 C. In general, a good starting point is 10 degrees cooler than you typically print PLA. A heated bed is not necessary, though if you have one, set it to 45 C.
Quality: All 3D-Fuel 3D printer filament is manufactured in our own production facility located in Fargo, North Dakota or in Moville, Ireland (depending on customer location). We have complete control over the manufacturing process and are able to ensure consistent quality for every spool.
Diameter Tolerance: Variable diameter can cause big problems in your 3D printer. We use a multi-axis laser measurement system to control our filament diameter and ovality in real time during production. Every spool has the diameter and ovality measurements
Packing Information: A 500g (1.1lbs) of Entwined Hemp Filament plastic filament arrives on an easy-to-use plastic reel and is vacuum sealed with a desiccant packet to keep out any moisture.
Test Printing: The 3D-Fuel test lab features multiple brands of 3D printers including MakerBot, LulzBot, FlashForge, and more. We 3D print what we manufacture to ensure that our filament provides the absolute best quality possible.
