Cork 3D Printing Filament, Now from colorFabb

After Kai Parthy opened up the world of desktop 3D printing to the wonders of printable wood and stone, Dutch manufacturer colorFabb took the specialty filament ball and ran with it, creating a long list of filaments made from various woods and metal composites. Their newest product, announced today and available for pre-order, is corkFill.

corkFill is made up of a combination of cork particles and colorFabb’s own PLA/PHA by FKuR in Germany, who also work with the Dutch company on its woodFill and bambooFill filaments. corkFill prints at temperatures between 210° and 230°C at speeds between 40 and 60 mm/s. Though a heated bed is not necessary, it’s advised for better layer adhesion, with bed temperatures of between 50° and 60°C. Available in 1.75 and 2.85mm spools of 650 g, corkFill can be pre-ordered from colorFabb for €39.95. And, if you’re heading to the TCT Show, you’ll be able to check it out in person at the colorFabb booth.
