Temperature Guidelines:

BambooFill prints with your standard PLA settings. Heated bed is not required. For a good adhesion to the platform, we recommend blue painter's tape. 

Recommended settings:

  • extruder temperature: 190 - 230°C
  • platform temperature: 0 - 50°C
  • shells: 2 - 4
  • resolution: .1mm
  • infill: 10%-50%

Compatible Extruders

Direct drive and bowden extruders systems are compaitable with bambooFill. Colorfabb warns against using any hot-ends which use a teflon isolator coupler, as the filament has been shown to clog these devices.

Temperature color

You can change the color of the filament by switching between higher and lower temperatures. Use 190c for lighter colors and 230c for darker colors. You can even create bands of varying colors.

Maintenance

Fast retraction settings can clog gear teeth

Before printing multiple parts you’ll want to check that the drive gear isn’t clogged with saw dust. Use a metal poker and vacuum to clean each gear tooth. Hit it with a metal brush to make sure all of the teeth are cleaned off.
