CCTREE PLA Filament
The CCTree PLA filament we will be looking at today is the 1.75mm diameter variety, but it is also available in 3mm. The filament is available in a wide variety of colors, around 25 colors, and is sold in 1kg spools.
The experience with this filament has been great, producing very good quality prints with a great level of detail and only minimal 3D printed object cleanup required after printing.
During printing the filament has minimal stringing, if any at all, and I have never had a print fail because of a filament issue using CCTREE PLA filament.
CCTREE PLA filament is a very easy filament to print with and offers great value being one of the less expensive filaments available. I would highly recommend this filament for novices and experienced 3D print enthusiasts alike.
CCTREE Wood Filament
CCTREE Wood filament is a 1.75mm diameter filament consisting of a mixture of PLA plastic and wood fibers that produces prints with a slightly rough wood-like finish, similar to Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF), that can be sanded and stained in a similar way to wood.
This filament is slightly more challenging to print with and is more prone to stringing (due to the wood fibers) and larger flat surfaces are prone to slight bowing as the print cools down.
It is still however possible to produce prints with a great level of detail, it just requires an extra bit of cleanup and finishing.
During printing, this filament gives off a subtle wood-like odor.
The CCTREE Wood filament is more expensive than their PLA filament, costing approximately double the price.
This filament is great for prints that benefit from a more natural wood-like finish (for example a baby Groot) and the end result looks fantastic. This is a great filament but is probably not the best choice for a 3D printing newbie to get started with.
CCTree filaments offer great quality and value for money, the filaments are available in a wide variety of colors and options and they come highly recommended.

I find this whole 3D printing stuff fascinating, but I have to admit I’ve never managed to get into it due to the costs. Output looks great though.
