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