  • Only 50% density of standard 3d printing filaments

LAYWOODmeta5, a new “cardboard-like” wood material from Kai Parthy. True to it's namesake, LAYWOODmeta5 exhibits 5 key properties. A highly porous 3D printing material so light it floats on water. This impressive porosity and low density material is just 0.5 grams per cubic centimeter. It is certainly on the lighter end of the filament spectrum. The cardboard-like feel of the LAYWOODmeta5 gives objects printed in the material a rustic look. The material can even be changed after printing is complete, because the third property is its climate responsiveness. This unusual feature means the material can be marginally elongated when rinsed in water, or shrunk slightly when dried. Usefully, this elongation is also entirely reversible, so 3D printed objects can be returned to their original shape and size after climate exposure. The fourth property is great thermal isolation, meaning makers can use the filament to 3D print their own cup holders for protecting hands from cups of hot drink. This feature comes about because of the low thermal conductivity of the porous structure of the material.
