Made from Natureworks 4043D PLA Resin and 15% short-chopped carbon fibres this material is incredibly stiff and rigid. Prints to a rich matte black with a shimmer that shows off it’s carbon fibre pedigree.
This is one of our favourite materials for parts that need to be rigid and stiff. We’ve used it for making tool holders for our lathe, and countless other mechanical bits. It’s rigidity to weight ratio makes it an ideal candidate for printing parts for model aircraft and other demanding applications.
Provided in a sealed bag of 250g, not on a spool. This filament needs care to be taken as it is quite brittle in it’s filament form and care must be taken to ensure it is not kinked when printing.
This filament needs care to be taken as it is quite brittle in its filament form and care must be taken to ensure it is not kinked when printing. Carbon Fibre filaments are also abrasive and can wear brass nozzles and extruder hobbs more quickly than standard filament. As such a stainless steel or hardened steel nozzle are recommended, and ideally a hardened steel extruder hobb.
