Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on June 1, 2017
This stuff is absolutely amazing. It prints well and if you are willing to put some work into post-processing you will get results that you will swear are wood. This does tend to 'stretch' a little more than regular PLA and gives you a little more clean-up work. I made a spiral chess set (credit to BigBadBison on Thingiverse for the design) and the results were unbelievable after putting in a lot of time sanding and prepping for stain.

Be sure you sand all the surfaces, it will help with stain adhesion. You don't need to go crazy with fine grit paper, I think I sanded down to 120 and it turned out great. I found that gel stain worked better than regular stain, and dark colors were definitely better, more realistic results than light. 4 coats of spray poly and some steel wool and you would SWEAR these pieces are wood.

I am definitely a believer and will be buying more rolls of this!
