Carbon Fibre Filament, 3.0mm, 0.8kg/spool

We want to bring you the most consistent and excellent filament possible and at a price that you can afford. We partnered with a company who custom make our plastic for us and have plastic engineers on site to ensure you get only the best quality filament.

What's more, each high quality roll comes on an easy turning plastic spool. We then have each roll vacuum sealed in an airtight plastic bag with a desiccant inside and finally packaged in a protective cardboard box so that your plastic is in the best possible condition and free of moisture when it gets to you. No one likes buying filament and discovering it's been soaking up moisture for a year in someone's warehouse.

Check out our conductive filaments, UV reactive filament, flexible filament, glass transparent filament and glow-in-the-dark specialty filaments. You'll love them.

Description:

This filament is ideal for anyone that desires a structural component with high modulus, excellent surface quality, dimensional stability and light weight.

** A special point of attention is the abrasive nature of the carbon fibers. In general these fibers will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles, much faster than unfilled filaments. You make want to keep a nozzle aside for printing with this filament.**

Prints beautifully - great layer adhesion

Cons:

I kept all my normal PLA settings for this filament and it prints really well at 200c with no heated bed. I honestly didn't expect such I strength increase over standard PLA but for mechanical parts this stuff makes it far more viable to print working prototypes without having to bulk up and reinforce the design so much.

Finished prints have a nice matte look you would expect from carbon fiber with a slightly textured surface, really impressed with this one.
