Not only have they concentrated on bringing this filament to CubePro users, they have exerted a great deal of effort in presenting finishing techniques that are sure to be useful for a wide variety of applications.

The techniques are outlined in a .PDF available on the Wood Filament product page.
In order to use the new wood filament, you will need to purchase and install a new "Advanced Nozzle" which costs $99.
The instructions for installing the new nozzle are also available on the Wood Filament product page.
I wish I could tell you how well it works; but, this new filament came as a complete surprise to me. I can say that it is innovative enough for us to be very interested in using it in YouthQuest's 3D ThinkLink Lab. The Nylon was a game changer and from everything I have learned about the wood filament, it is destined to be a game-changer as well!
For our cadets to be able to design wooden parts that could actually be incorporated into designs of actual wood fixtures is an important step forward in giving them practical and marketable skills.
Thank you CubePro team!!!
