Filament made of sandstone that recreates a surface finish similar to stone or ceramic.

Lay-Brick is a filament made for 3D printing with sandstone and binding polymer that creates a surface finish similar to a stone or ceramic object.

Besides varying the extrusion temperature the surfaces are more or less rough. Lay-Brick is like the Laywoo-D3 indicated for 3D printing of decorative pieces. The combination of the new geometries that are possible to manufacture thanks to 3D printing and the various possibilities of surface finish featuring Lay-Brick allow you to create innovative decorative pieces.

Parts 3D printed with this filament offer a finish similar in appearance to ceramic. However, in no case will they have the properties of this material.

If you want to manufacture parts that have the properties of ceramics, it is recommended to visit the metallic / ceramic category. Parts 3D printed with these materials become completely metallic or ceramic through a sintering process. It should be noted that the filaments in the metallic / ceramic category require more knowledge due to their complexity both in the printing process and in the subsequent sintering, which is sometimes experimental in nature.

Once the Lay-Brick used in your 3D printer filament it is highly recommended you remove the remaining filament, filament upload to extrude PLA for one minute at high temperature (230 ºC). This will eliminate shape inside the printhead any remaining Lay-Brick filament which could cause jamming of the nozzle. In the tab usage tips you will find more information about how to use this strand in your 3D printer and you get the best printing results you risk to spoil or damage some of the components.

The nozzle temperature may range from 165 and 210ºC. Less rough surfaces are obtained at low temperatures. As temperature increases, more rough and harsh surfaces are produced. When printing is finished, it is recommendable inserting PLA filament and charging it for 30 seconds in order to remove the remains of LayBrick inside the extruder. This avoids the extruded to be blocked when printing again.

Masterspool format

The 250 g. format of the Lay-Brick filament can sometimes cause problems during the printing process because it does not include a spool that helps the correct supply of material from the 3D printer.

To avoid this type of problem when printing this and other filaments that are sold in masterspool format you can use a variable spool holder. Thanks to the use of this device, all kinds of tangles and overlaps derived from the absence of a spool are largely avoided.
