Research printer for cellulose
I am looking to purchase a 3D printer that can print cellulose (main component of wood). I've done some looking, but what type of printer should I consider, and would it be possible to get a final 3D print that is pure cellulose (i.e. all solvents evaporate, no binders, etc)? I'm also looking to only make small models (a few millimeters in size). Does this look possible, or should I just give up this idea?

Hi atex,

maybe you should better look into SLS with lignin-powder, instead of cellulose-printing - lignin is the remaining 'organic thermoplast', when you remove the wood-fibres ... here the link to a company producing lignin for injection-moulding:

I've received some kilogramms of lignin-dust from them and will perform some tests for SLS or other 3D-printing methodes, but this can take a while more until I'll get something usefull -- not enough spare time at home actually ... and some more urgent projects on my time-shedule ...
