Benefits of CarbonX™ ABS+CF
  • Stiff, high-modulus, industrial-grade parts off many 3D printers available on the market today
  • Greatly improved stiffness, modulus, and dimensional stability thanks to the addition of carbon fiber reinforcement
  • Easier to print than most industrial-grade materials
  • Parts can be smoothed with acetone vapors
  • Higher melting point than PLA or PETG
Filament Specifications:
1.75mm and 2.85mm +/- 0.05mm in diameter
Recommended Print Settings:
  • Extruder: 220-240°C
  • Bed Temp: 100-110°C
  • Nozzle: We currently recommend a hardened steel nozzle with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm.
  • Other: Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers smaller than 0.2mm with carbon fiber reinforced filaments
  • Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep gives us the best results
  • Heated Chamber: Recommended, a chamber helps reduce warping.
  • Supports: AquaTek™ water soluble X1 USM Universal Support Material is designed to work with complex models
  • Drying Instructions: 80°C for 4 hours
Carbon Fiber Reinforced Filament
What Is It?

Fibers 5-10 micrometers wide made of carbon. The fibers are aligned following the axis of the material.

This, along with their physical makeup, are what give this material its excellent properties.

What Does It Do?

Carbon Fibers demonstrate a lot of desirable material properties:

  • High stiffness
  • High tensile strength
  • High heat tolerance
  • High chemical resistance
  • Low weight
  • Low thermal expansion
How Does It Work?

Reinforcing plastic with carbon fibers produces a 3D printing filament which exhibits the best properties of both the carbon fibers and the plastic of choice.

What Is It Good For?

Ideal for any applications which require light weight and rigidity.

Carbon fiber reinforced parts, designed to use less material and save weight, is extremely popular in aerospace, civil engineering, the military, and motorsports.

Abrasive Material

This material is particularly abrasive among 3D printing filaments. Users may find standard brass nozzles are chewed through very quickly compared to standard wear and tear. When worn through, the nozzle diameter will widen inconsistently and the printer will experience extrusion issues.

Because of this, it’s strongly recommended this material be printed through a hardened steel nozzle rather than a softer metal. Hardened steel nozzles can often be inexpensive and easily installed depending on your printer manufacturer’s instructions.
