As a new kind of manufacturing technology developing rapidly, Material Increasing Manufacturing, scilicet 3D printing technology is that the popularity of various fields. In this paper, under the background of the desktop 3D printing gradually enter the family. To solve the printing material problem scilicet 3D printing technology development bottleneck, come up with a bamboo-plastic composite made of Bamboo powder and poly lactic acid (PLA), can be used on desktop 3D printing. Due to bamboo resources is abundant, low cost, and also have the advantages of friendly of environment, have a good potential for development. In this paper, the right formula is used in the study on preparation of materials, through the material blending; extrusion process to produce the 3D printing wire can meet the requirements. Through further studies on the ratio of bamboo and plastic, the amount of additives added, extrusion processing temperature and material situation, optimizing the ratio of bamboo and plastic, the amount of Additives, adjust the extrusion temperature in the formulation. Tests showed that through the improved technology, wires have further enhanced performance, continuous printing more than 300 meters, the printing effect is smooth, jam does not appear, and the molded parts have good quality.
