You did that with the stock nozzle? Nice

Hi all
I have just seem this post so sorry if it's a late reply.
I also have wood filled PLA from SUNLU:

I didn't think I needed to change anything for this filament.
I used PLA settings and changed nothing, printed with 0.4mm nozzle, no problems.
The print is as good as normal PLA.

Here is a headphone stand I did with two separate filaments. The one on the left was using Hatchbox wood filament, the one on the right was using a Coffee filament without any post processing (note that the glitch on the legs was from my printer stopping and manually restarting after editing the gcode to get it back to that layer - pita).

Here you can see the depth of the color from the coffee filament.

Note that the coffee filament is 4x the cost of average filament ($49/500g). This stand was ~$13 in materials, whereas the wood filament version was only ~$3 (according to Cura).
