What were the print settings you have tried with your wood filament? I saw your review on Amazon about the Hatchbox wood filament.

Thanks

(A quick note before the settings: scaling the rosette to be 40.00mm square and making the Z Offset -6.00mm turns it into a great quick-printing test piece for wood filament.)

Every printer seems to have its own “personality”, but here’s what works well on ours!

I could not get this to print. It prints the base but then it spews a bit of filament up in the air and stops. I suspect either the file does not play well with scli3r or something is wrong with the file.

Hmmm... I'm sorry I don't know -- we use simplify3d and didn't have any trouble. Could you try rotating the file in your slicer program and re-slicing? (And if you're saving to an SD card in a computer and then transferring it to the printer, make sure the file finishes loading/saving before you pull the SD card out of the computer.)
