2 Prints : 1 with black PLA, 1 with Wood PLA.
Size : 10% more for the a bigger door, 10% shorter.
Black PLA still empty after 1 month.
Wood PLA colonized after 1 week.
I have print a green PLA since 1 week. Still empty...

Does it work with standard PLA? I think of printing it with wood PLA.

I've never made one myself due to a lack of suitable bees (and time to find them). It should work with whatever you can print in. Make sure that if you use the Customizer that the cells are all connected together, some values can lead it to generate separate hollow shapes.

I am curious to see how/if the bees could incorporate wood filled PLA into a larger hive... send on a picture if you make it!

LOL! Measure your bee diameter!
